An ease of living marks the South Shore neighborhoods with sleek 1960’s style homes that have risen in popularity with those seeking retro modernist designs, as well as condominiums, and apartments, some with gorgeous views of the San Francisco Bay. Many homes are located around a large tranquil lagoon that sits just north of Otis Drive. A popular destination is Crown Memorial State Beach, a two-and-one-half mile long beach on the San Francisco Bay; one of few sandy public beaches on the Bay. Outdoor enthusiasts of all ages frequent the beach to enjoy long walks or bike rides, volleyball, windsurfing, and kite boarding. South Shore also hosts South Shore Shopping Center, a tastefully renovated retail center with an impressive list of tenants, including Trader Joe's, Kohl's, Bed Bath & Beyond, Old Navy, Safeway, Office Max, Panera Bread, as well as many other stores, restaurants and services.
