The Jewel City

One of Southern California's most affluent neighborhoods, La Jolla occupies about 11 km (7 mi) of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean. Surrounded on three sides by ocean bluffs and beaches, and boasting a mild year-round climate, this upscale community is a vacation paradise for water-lovers, just 19 km (12 mi) from downtown San Diego. Though officially part of the larger metropolis, La Jolla is in many ways its own destination--its economy resting on the thriving sectors of dining, shopping, finance, real estate, tourism, and scientific research. The city houses one of California's largest research universities, noted for its futuristically designed library named after author Theodor Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Add La Jolla and other destinations to your itinerary using our United States trip itinerary maker, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
