San Diego County’s Finest Treasure

La Jolla, California definitely holds true to its name.  Meaning The Jewel in Spanish, La Jolla is one of San Diego’s finest treasures.  This little community north of the city of San Diego has something to offer for almost anyone.

Beaches: La Jolla has two main beaches.  What is known as The Shores is a sandy beach perfect for soaking up the sun or building sand castles.  For the more adventurous, The Cove has cliffs, tide pools, and caves.  Sea lions and seals frequent the cove area and are a tourist favorite.  Those who enjoy kayaking, snorkeling, or scuba diving will find that the La Jolla Cove is a dream come true.

Shopping: Fancy boutiques line the streets of La Jolla.  If you are planning on spending a day shopping, be prepared to see pricey apparel.  Designer names such as Lucky Brand, Armani Exchange, and Ann Taylor are the norm.

Dining: If the shopping is ritzy, the dining has to be as well.  La Jolla is known for its fine dining.  Many of the restaurants offer great views of the ocean along with premium meals.  A personal favorite is Kitima Extraordinary Thai because of its quaint, comfortable atmosphere and amazing “Tom Kha Kai,” a coconut milk soup.

Real Estate: Many people visit La Jolla just to see the beautiful houses.  Porsche, Maserati, and BMW are not a rare sight in the driveways.  If you have an extra million dollars, consider investing in one of the dream homes!
