Tourist attractions near La Jolla vacation rentals

The sprawling, blufftop Torrey Pines Golf Course might have hosted the U.S. Open in 2008, but it's open to the public year-round. Tee times are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis, but you may want to bring a sleeping bag – weekend visitors have been known to camp out the night before to ensure a spot. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego boasts a permanent collection of nearly 5,000 works of art, many of which are on display in the stately former home of journalist and publisher Ellen Browning Scripps.


Activities near La Jolla vacation homes

While La Jolla features many stellar beaches, the sandy La Jolla Shores is a favorite among locals for its surf and sunbathing. Surfers willing to brave a steep downhill trek – and the occasional beachcomber looking for that all-over tan – will be rewarded with the secluded Black's Beach, an unofficial "clothing optional" stretch of coastline considered by many to have some of the best waves in San Diego. The Scripps Coastal Reserve offers 46 acres of hiking trails, plant life, and bird-watching, as well as 80 acres of protected ocean and beach.


Local weather for your stay in La Jolla vacation homes

La Jolla's temperate Mediterranean climate means you can enjoy its beaches almost all year round. Although morning fog is fairly common during the summer – locals call it "May gray" or "June gloom," depending on the month – it tends to burn off by midday, giving way to sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-seventies. August is the warmest month, with an average high of 82°F. While rain is rare, you're most likely to see it in January, February, and March, though rates for La Jolla vacation rentals don't tend to change much between summer and winter.

Natural features

La Jolla's natural charms

La Jolla's landscape is marked by a series of hills and mesas that plunge steeply downward to meet sandy beaches or rugged coastline on the Pacific Ocean. Wild seals are a common sight along the rocky shoreline, and the area's many sea caves and coastal inlets offer opportunities for kayakers and divers to get up close and personal with La Jolla's leopard shark population. The fish aren't dangerous, so feel free to leave the harpoons at home. Your central La Jolla vacation rental also offers easy access to San Diego's many natural bays and blufftop hiking trails.
