Where is La Jolla Shores?
Actually a part of San Diego, La Jolla looks like a Destination of its own: you can spend a few days in this enclave and get a perfect Southern California experience-combined with a manageable location with Hotels, shops and cafes that offer a sophisticated atmosphere.
La Jolla (the Americans pronounce it similar to “la heuer”) is one of the jewels of the San Diego coast. About 20 minutes north of Downtown, La Jolla is home to wide, white sandy beaches of the La Jolla Shores, with surfing and snorkeling opportunities and fire pits, as well as an adjacent playground for children. Head into the water with one of the local operators, such as La Jolla Kayak or San Diego Bike and Kayak Tours, and paddle or snorkel with La Jolla’s marine residents, from colorful Garibaldi fish to (non-dangerous) leopard sharks. More water creatures can be discovered from the land at Birch Aquarium, which is affiliated with the famous Scripps Institution of Oceanography, or stand at the sea Wall on the beach, known as the “Children’s Pool” and watch as a large community of sea lions laze, bark and search for their cubs.
The sea lions live right next to the heart of La Jolla, the hilly areas known as The Cove, and Bird Rock. The sea is always visible among the shops, Eateries and accommodations – such as La Valencia Hotel, the meditterranean-style “Pink Lady” that once hosted World War II soldiers who were about to leave, and Hollywood celebrities such as Gregory Peck. Shop in the upscale boutiques along Girard Avenue and Prospect Street, or dine at the beloved George’s at the Cove, the farm-to-table WhisknLadle, colorful Taco heaven Puesto, or the seafood-rich nine-Ten.
