Mission Valley is a very fun area with a lot of places to eat, a huge mall with a movie theater, and a lot of visitors. Nearly the entire valley is a combination of owner-occupied and income property condos and townhomes. The area’s In N’ Out brings many swarming at all hours of the day and lines down the tiny parking lot spilling into other business areas, but it’s worth it, right? The most well-known piece of Mission Valley is the mall however with great selections, a lot of space, and a great theater. Nordstrom’s Rack alone must keep the scene alive. Rent in Mission Valley is average to high cost as it is considered a safer area to live and very close to Fashion Valley Mall.
