Things to do in La Jolla
The alluring seaside community of La Jolla includes a variety of businesses, recreation and scenery that residents and visitors can come and enjoy. La Jolla is known for its beaches such as La Jolla Shores and the Shell Beach Tide pools which are home to all kinds of marine life. La Jolla cove is very popular among locals and visitors because of its seals and the sea lions that reside on the edge of the beach in what’s known as the La Jolla Cove Children’s Pool. For the golfers and nature enthusiasts, La Jolla has Torrey Pines Golf Course and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Described as a wilderness island in an urban sea, the natural reserve is a 2,000 acre park protected by the state because of its rare pine tree- the Pinus torreyana. Also preserved here is one of the last salt water marshes in Southern California. Visitors of the park are allowed to hike trails around the park and view the beautiful flowers, trees, and ocean. If you’re into fitness, not only can you take walks along the beach or hike in the Natural Reserve, but you can also visit one of the many fitness centers and yoga studios located in La Jolla. There are several fine dining restaurants that are popular among locals and people visiting all around San Diego County. There’s the Birch Aquarium which has on display all kinds of marine life and has fun activities for kids (and adults) to learn all about the ocean. If you are more into shopping, La Jolla is known for its small shops that sell all kinds of things like jewelry, antiques, art, and clothing. Nearby is the Westfield UTC Shopping Mall. If you want to witness a breathtaking view of the ocean and San Diego, visit Mount Soledad, a monument that serves as a Veterans Memorial.
