All About La Jolla

Attracting tourists from all over the world, La

Jolla’s community is one that combines trends with

traditional class. Located 12 miles north from

downtown San Diego, this highly prosperous

community offers seven miles of coastline at an

elevation of 110 feet. The land here is so desired

that it’s impossible to find property in La Jolla

for less than 1.25 million an acre!

The lucky 38,000 plus who live in this heavenly

seaside town live among Mediterranean style

architecture with a unique flair. From the

crashing waves along the shore to the high rise

buildings in the business district, you can expect

everything in La Jolla to be first rate quality.

Business district

Even though La Jolla is mostly known for its

incredible shoreline, the city’s business district

is hardly modest to say the least. Located to

the east in La Jolla, there are professional centers,

financial buildings, law firms, and technological

industries that dominate this district.

There are also modern shopping centers here as well,

along with a wealthy residential area. The

world renowned Scripps Memorial Hospital & Medical

Research Center is here as well as the San Diego

Mormon Temple – a remarkable 59,000 square foot

building that resembles a large ice sculpture.

The Village

The downtown area of La Jolla offers shops, hotels,

boutiques, restaurants, coffee houses, salons,

and art galleries. Even though this area is

rather small, the district is full of trendy

establishments that draw wealthy visitors from all

over the world.

Girad Avenue is the main street of La Jolla, even

though Prospect Drive is known as “Rodeo Drive” in

San Diego.

Shoreline

Although the business area and La Jolla Village are

both impressive communities, the most memorable

region in La Jolla is the areas and communities

along the Pacific shoreline.

La Jolla offers some of the most impressive shore

lines in Southern California, with remarkable

caves, cliffs, beaches, and sunsets. The best

view of La Jolla can be seen from the air. Daring

visitors can take in La Jolla via the Torrey Pines

Gliderport and learn flying. If you seek a more

tame view of the coastline, try the scenic drive

along North Torrey Pines Road.

All along the coastline, La Jolla offers you a

first rate shopping district. You can visit

jewelry stores, art galleries, souvenir shops,

and fashionable boutiques. Once you have been

shopping, you can complete the day by dining above

the water of the Pacific.

From the art galleries and trendy shops to the

world class golf courses, La Jolla has attractions

to please tourists from all over the world. Each

district is unique, yet they are all similiar when

it comes to quality. You won’t find anything short

of the best when you visit the best Southern

California has to offer.
