La Jolla, California: Upscale Coastal Community Close to San Diego
La Jolla sits on the northern outskirts of San Diego, along a stretch of hilly coastal terrain marked by sprawling mansions and dramatic cliffs overlooking the Pacific. Upscale boutiques, galleries, and gourmet restaurants are clustered in the Village, La Jolla’s downtown business district. The city is also home to UC-San Diego and its acclaimed theater-in-residence, the La Jolla Playhouse. Founded in 1947 by actor Gregory Peck, the award-winning theater stages a wide range of plays and musicals throughout the year.
But it’s Mother Nature who steals the show here. Hop in a kayak to see the 6,000 acres of rocky reefs and kelp forests at the San Diego-La Jolla Underwater Park. You can explore sea caves and catch glimpses of marine life, including sea lions and orange garibaldi. The park’s La Jolla Cove attracts divers and snorkelers, who plunge into the calm, clear waters to get up close to the living coral. After a dive, it’s nice to kick back and soak in the sun on the white-sand beachfront known as La Jolla Shores.
