With one of the best movie theaters in the city, Edwards Cinema, there are too many people in Mira Mesa and not enough room. Stretching from Scripps Ranch to Sorrento Valley, most do not even realize how large Mira Mesa is. One thing everyone knows without a doubt is that the traffic is horrendous. Hundreds of companies that all have hours 9-5 are packed into the industrialized area just east of La Jolla and it’s always growing. As far as cost in Mira Mesa, there are nice areas that are worth the bang for their buck but most you wouldn’t assume would be so pricey. It’s an interesting area to say the least.
