As one of California’s most exclusive beachfront communities, La Jolla truly lives up to the Spanish translation of its name; the jewel. Offering world class shopping, beautiful, dramatic ocean scenery, and a year round Mediterranean like climate, La Jolla draws people in from all over the world, to not only vacation, but to call La Jolla home.
With Pacific Beach to the south, and Del Mar to the north, the hilly, seaside community of La Jolla spans 7 miles of curving coastline just along the Pacific Ocean. And with La Jolla being made up of 16 different neighborhoods, including Bird Rock, the Muirlands, and La Jolla Farms, each neighborhood provides a wide range of accommodations and activities sure to meet everyone’s lifestyle. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it still manages to have a down-to earth, quaint, village feel.
I think both locals and tourists alike would agree that one of the largest and most compelling attractions of La Jolla is its beautiful beaches. Windansea Beach has long been known to be a first class surf spot, with many famous surfers catching waves and flocking to this beach. For those who love snorkeling, kayaking, and scuba diving, the Cove is the perfect spot to partake in any of these outdoor activities! And if you prefer to go au natural, you can always head on over to Black’s Beach, the largest nude beach in the United States!
La Jolla’s reputation as a premier travel destination is due in large part to its quaint, yet upscale downtown, commonly known as the Village. With its casual fine dining, one-of-a kind art galleries, and first class shopping, there is something to appeal to everyone’s taste buds.
After enjoying a delicious brunch with ocean view dining at George’s at the Cove, head on over to the Children’s Pool in La Jolla, where you can see seals basking in the sunshine or watch the sun set in the evening, as it slowly disappears from beyond the ocean horizon.
In addition to beautiful beaches, La Jolla is home to some of the most distinguished and prominent institutions, such as the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Stephen Birch Aquarium and Museum, and the Salk Institute. Some of the finest educational systems can be found in La Jolla. In fact, La Jolla High School is not only a California Distinguished School, but is ranked as one of the top 100 high schools in the nation by Newsweek magazine. The Bishop’s School is not only known for the top-notch education students receive, but is also known throughout Southern California as a water polo powerhouse. With many top-rated schools located in La Jolla, there is no shortage of fine educational institutions to choose from.
Because of all the beautiful attractions and amenities this upscale seaside village has to offer, La Jolla is the perfect place to raise a family in, vacation, or work in! There is always something new to discover about the “Jewel of San Diego”!
