Casa de Mañana offers award-winning retirement living in a historic setting on the La Jolla coast. Here, the views are breathtaking all times of day. Down-to-earth, inclusive, engaging and warm, it’s all the best of Southern California living. With a rich collage of exhibits, lectures, theatre, art and music nearby, Casa de Mañana is a world by the sea. It’s resort-style living and old-world charm that’s surprisingly attainable. A history overlooking the Pacific, Casa de Mañana has stories to tell. Come write your own. 8 4 9 C OA S T B LV D . L A J O L L A , C A 92037
