Great streets to enjoy beautiful weather. City does a fantastic job of keeping it clean and maintaining landscaped features. Stores are not exceptional as to merchandise and not as unique as they once were. Appears to be drawing a very young tourist crowd from other...More

Lovely restaurants, but this area used to have nice, unique shops. Now it is the large, high end chains. Still nice for a decent meal with a view but not what it was and the crowds are terrible

Picturesque La Jolla village is a perfect place to stroll on a sunny afternoon. Interesting boutique shopping, art galleries and a great variety of cafés and restaurants to try. Parking can be difficult, but if you enjoy walking, park several blocks from the coast.

In that order. After watching the sunset and getting your fill of smelling sea lions, it's time to enjoy the neighborhood. Choose from many restaurants to please your pallet, but don't eat dessert quite yet. Stroll through some galleries after dinner (NatGeo my favorite), and...More

Inn by the Sea at La Jolla is the one that is closest to the beach around this area. They were renovating in March. Not really sure how it is though as we stayed at Grand Colonial Hotel which is a little up the hill from the... More
