La Jolla , “the Jewel”, is one of the many coastal towns which help define the city of San Diego. With the soaring slopes of Mt. Soledad as its backdrop, dramatic cliffs and magnificent views lead visitors to spectacular beaches and the bustling village district, which offers world-class restaurants, boutiques and art galleries, as well as the renowned La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, La Jolla enjoys a uniquely temperate climate. That, along with its Mediterranean feel and spectacular scenery, makes La Jolla some of San Diego’s most sought after real estate. Stroll along scenic Coast Boulevard and view the Children’s Pool, protected by a sea wall, and home to a colony of seals. Further on you will find the grassy picnic area of Scripps Park, where free outdoor summer concerts and Fourth of July fireworks draw both locals and tourists alike. To the north is the beautiful and family friendly La Jolla Shores, with its wide sandy beaches, pier, and home to one of the foremost oceanographic institutions in the world, Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Swimming, diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and boating are enjoyed year round, with water temperatures in the 70’s throughout most of the summer months. La Jolla is truly a year round resort destination, whether summer picnicking while overlooking the blue Pacific, or watching the crashing waves of huge winter surf, the “Jewel” of San Diego is one of its genuine treasures.
