The Closest shopping center to my Logic Study area is at Francisco & Green Valley Road. It is anchored by a Safeway, and now hosts numerous pizzerias, salons, delis, boutique shops and multiple coffee shops.
The quality and selection of shopping and dining experiences is growing in El Dorado Hills in number and variety:
Raley's Center: Anchored by Raley's Superstore on Park Drive near Serrano Blvd., this shopping center also includes eating establishments such as Bella Bru Cafe and Catering, Steve's Pizza and Pick Up Stix, several quick-food options and a deli, plus banks, a hairdresser, specialty shops and a pre-school/daycare center.
Town Center (Click for map): Located at the El Dorado Hills Blvd. Interchange at Highway 50, Town Center is home to the 14-screen Regal Theatres, the El Dorado Hills Sports Club and a myriad of boutiques and restaurants. With its manmade lake, Town Center is designed to be enjoyed by shoppers, diners and outdoor enthusiasts. There's hiking and biking trails, an amphitheatre for entertainment, and edge-of-the-lake outdoor dining for restaurant patrons.
Town Center dining highlights include A Maad Tea Party Café, Asahi Sushi, Café Campanile, Chantara Thai Cuisine, Chili's Grill & Bar, Cold Stone Creamery, Debbie Wong's Express, Hot Peppers Taqueria, Infusión Restaurant, Mama Ann's Italian Deli, Nestle Toll House, Pueblo Chico Restaurant, Sizzling Fresh Mongolian BBQ, Strings Italian Cafe
Town Center does include the practical, too. Shoppers can buy necessities at Longs Drugs; a new Target store opened this past fall and the much-anticipated Nugget Market opened in December 2007. There are also banks, a hairdresser, dentist and doctor offices and many more services. There's luxury big-ticket shopping, too: El Dorado Hills' one and only car dealership, Mercedes Benz, is located here. For guests or business associates coming to town, Town Center offers a Holiday Inn Express.
