Exploring La Jolla:

There is no shortage of things to explore and discover right in La Jolla from eating at top restaurants with expansive views to strolling along the ‘cove’ to learning to ocean kayak to taking in a show at our Tony Award-winning Playhouse.

For an ongoing list of current events be sure to visit and download the free app La Jolla 37; it is an interactive map that lets you discover 37 places within La Jolla and the stories behind places from the Cross on top of Mount Soledad to Seal Beach to the Cove to many more.

Here is a short list of my top 10 picks for places to discover:

1. La Jolla Playhouse: If there's a show on, don't miss the Tony Award-winning La Jolla Playhouse - in the past 20 years, they've launched no less than nine plays to Broadway (including Jersey Boys, I Am My Own Wife and Memphis), with six of them winning Tony Awards and one garnering a Pulitzer Prize.

2. Mount Soledad: Climbing up to the Mount Soledad War memorial affords magnificent views of La Jolla, San Diego and beyond.

3. Torrey Pines Reserve: Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is located within San Diego city limits and yet remains one of the wildest stretches of land on our Southern California coast! Because of the efforts and foresight of the people in this area, 2000 acres of land are as they were before San Diego was developed -with the chaparral plant community, the rare and elegant Torrey pine trees, miles of unspoiled beaches and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds. Well worth taking a few hours to hike (easy hiking tails) to explore this Park.

4. La Jolla Cove & Shores: This is still the number one draw for visitors from around the globe; a simple stroll along the seawall above the cliffs will quickly reveal why? La Jolla Cove is a small, picturesque cove and beach that is surrounded by cliffs in La Jolla, San Diego, California. The Cove is protected as part of a marine reserve; underwater it is very rich in marine life, and is popular with snorkelers and scuba divers.

The swells that often roll in from the open ocean here can be rather large and strong, and so being in the water at the Cove is not always suitable for people who do not have good water skills. The water temperature is also often a little colder than the average San Diego beach, and the beach has the disadvantage that the dry sand area is very small at high tide. In contrast, during very low tides, a lot of interesting tide pools are revealed at the Cove.

5. Shop Girard Ave & Prospect Street: The choice of celebrities and bargain-hunters alike, La Jolla is for all who seek 'just for me' instead of 'me, too'. Here, you'll find the priceless and the popular. The haute couture and the comfortably familiar. The world's most luxurious brands and the everyday values. Who wouldn't you rather browse a beautiful seaside village than a crowded, noisy mall? However, it is the numerous art galleries that get my top pick for ways to shop or ‘window shop’ in my hometown.

6. Take in the Sunset: Take your pick from the WindanSea, The Shores or The Cove; all offer amazing places to watch the sunset. People camp out hours in advance with their lawn chairs and picnic dinners to experience one of the most photographed sunsets in the world.

7. La Jolla Open Aire Market: Every Sunday, the upper playground at La Jolla Elementary is transformed into a colorful, friendly and wholesome Farmer's Market. Come experience the community feel, live music, creative artisans, diverse food court, and local farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Consistently ranked as one of the largest and best farmers markets in San Diego, our Sunday Market in La Jolla has grown to become one of the premier weekly events for locals and tourists alike. Families and their kids can enjoy the live music, fresh air, playgrounds, and grass fields to run and play on.

8. Birch Aquarium at Scripps: Birch Aquarium at Scripps is the public exploration center for the world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the aquarium features more than 60 habitats of fishes and invertebrates from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest to the tropical waters of Mexico and the Caribbean. An interactive museum showcases research discoveries by Scripps scientists on climate, Earth and ocean science.

9. Museum of Contemporary Art – La Jolla: At MCASD in La Jolla, take in the fabulous ocean view from the Edwards Garden Gallery, or lunch on the patio at the Museum Cafe. The La Jolla location also houses the Museum’s X Store, filled with a selection of contemporary art books, apparel, and innovative design objects.

10. Biking, ocean kayaking, paddle boarding, etc: The town was designed for outdoor ‘lovers’ and there is no shortage of ideas from renting cruiser bikers and exploring the town by bike to kayaking to learning to surf. However, my top pick, would be to rent a kayak and explore the La Jolla Caves. A guided tour is highly recommended,

And here is my top picks for places to eat from take out to casual dining to top-notch restaurants:

Great Take Out places ($-$$): El Pescador Fish Market, 627 Pearl Street or The Promiscuous Fork, 6984 La Jolla Blvd. *one of my favoriate things to do is grab take out from either of these places and watch the sunset at the La Jolla Cove or WindanSea Beach

Great Casual Dining places (aka very family friendly) ($-$$$): Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza, 702 Pearl Street or Prepkitchen, 7556 Fay Ave.

Great Top-Notch Restaurants with amazing views ($$$-$$$$): A.R. Valentien, The Lodge at Torrey Pines, ask for a table out on the deck and watch the sunset over the 18th hole of Torrey Pines Golf Course, rated one of the top restaurants for a reason, well worth the experience or Eddie V’s, 1270 Prospect Street, amazing views, service and food, one of my personal favorite places to dine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a month in this beautiful apartment in La Jolla. It was our second visit to one of Lisa's apartments. The apartment is spotless and the kitchen fully equipped with everything you can think of. The beds are very comfortable too. We didn't have a car as we were there for a month so the location for access to groceries and transportation was important to us. The grocery store is only two blocks away and it's just a few steps to public transit into San Diego. Lots of restaurants to choose from too. We are retired and would highly recommend this apartment. We will definitely be back.

Great apartment, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was perfectly located in La Jolla. We have two kids, and it was a very easy stroller ride to the supermarket, shops and restaurants. In fact, I still miss being in that little walking neighborhood! The apartment was comfortable and clean and felt newly updated, with nice appliances and a very clean bathroom. I wanted to make sure we got a place that did not allow pets since we have a little infant on the floor for much of the time. I am very glad we stayed here. I was a little worried about the stairs going up to the apartment after reading a few of the reviews, but it is rather the length of a half-staircase and was carpeted and fairly wide, so it was no problem for my 2.5 year old (or us, for that matter) going up and down. I was a little surprised that there were no basic food items stocked in the pantry (like olive oil or spices), but again, the market was nearby. It had all the pots and dishes we needed though, including a steamer basket. All in all, it was a really great stay and I would definitely stay there again. Maybe next year!

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights. Apartment is very clean, nice and comfortable. Owner was very helpful. The only 2 inconveniences are that to get in you have to climb this high stairs. When you have to carry the luggage is a bit difficult, and the second one is that for a short time during night, neighbors had loud music and/or TV.

But we were very happy and would go back again.

We recomend this property.

Excellent location in La Jolla!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 9 days at this condo. We loved the rooftop deck and the location in La Jolla within walking distance to reasonably priced restaurants with great food -lots of take out options and very convenient to the grocery store. We chose it because of the location and that it had air conditioning and we did use the air conditioning even in October-it was warm! It was very nicely furnished (Lisa even had a new dresser delivered while we were there) and everything worked great. We will be back!

Very good place, fully equiped.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this property. Everything you need is there and the view from the terrace is very nice. The walk to the beach was a little bit longer than expected, because of the closure (restauration) of the closest beach access. We definitly will stay there again, when we are in the region.
