La Jolla

La Jolla literally means ‘the jewel’ in Spanish

With San Diego boasting many stunning, ocean front cities, La Jolla (92037) still seems to stand apart from the rest.

Located about 15 minutes north of downtown, San Diego, La Jolla offers a magnificent combination of an affluent southern European resort atmosphere crossed with laid back Southern California fun.

You will also find Torrey Pines State Park which has awesome trails offering a grand view of the coast north to Del Mar, renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Stephen Birch Aquarium & Museum, as well as the University of California, San Diego.


Did I not mention Torrey Pines Municipal Golf Course?  Where else but beautiful San Diego can residents play golf at such a world famous public course?

If you are a golf buff, then you already know that Torrey Pines is where the Buick Invitational is held.

It’s a fun time walking around Prospect Street, window browsing all the shops.

After a nice brunch I recommend making a short walk down to the Children’s pool to watch the seals sunbath and frolic in the
water.

Many residents and visitors to La Jolla are always found enjoying outdoors either biking, kayaking, snorkeling in the cove, and surfing.

Definitely check out the Dike Rock Tide pools, which is a rocky area just to the north of Scripps Pier.

It is situated on the property of  the University of San Diego, but is also part of the La Jolla Underwater Park Marine Reserve.

You can find anything from starfish to sea anemones and more and is just a short walk from La Jolla Shores.
