La Jolla, California - VIDEO Tour of This Jewel by the Sea

La Jolla, California

Video Tour of this Jewel by the Sea


View of La Jolla Cove in La Jolla, California



La Jolla, California, a few miles north of San Diego, is an incredibly beautiful community nestled along the blue Pacific, with terrific views of the ocean and the Southern California coastline. The town has been compared to the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy, with homes cascading down the hillsides to meet the sea, but with its own Southern California caché.

In addition to the beautiful, and expensive, ocean-view homes (the median price is over $1.5 million) clustered along the hills, La Jolla has a worldwide reputation for dining and shopping, with the bulk of the trendy shops, boutiques, galleries, jewelry stores, fine dining and upscale hotels lining Prospect Street, many with views of La Jolla Cove and the ocean beyond.



A tour through La Jolla on foot is a delight for the eyes, even if one's pocketbook groans at times. Traffic and parking are a challenge, especially in the summer and on weekends, but don't despair...taking your time is part of the pleasure, and if you don't mind walking a bit, side streets also offer places to leave your car to explore. A number of the dining establishments offer valet parking to make life easier, if not a bit more costly (well worth it, IMO, unless you are spending more time).


Favorite restaurants include George's at the Cove, Roppongi (sushi) and the Marine Room. You can find more places to dine at here.


Planning to stay overnight and pamper yourself? La Valencia Hotel is topnotch, as is the Hotel Parisi and the Grand Colonial.


Shopping is, well, over-the-top. No way can I begin to outline the stores, so check out the official La Jolla by the Sea website.


If you can't visit La Jolla live, or just want a taste of life, here's a short video.

Jeff, I have been to LaJolla before and it is a grand place. You do the best around town tours of anyone. No WalMarts. I hope never in LaJolla. The shops look great.

Thank you, Gary. When you come out again you must let me know.

Sharon -absolutely. You let me know when. :)

Lisa - well that IS one thing I recall about Florida. But there are some wonderful beaches. Thanks for sharing some of that beauty.

William - editing what? I did nothing but use my favorites...Real Estate Shows and YouTube. Thanks for the compliment.

Endre - agreed. It is a wonderful town in many ways, but there is a lifestyle there that does not work for many folks.

Kelly - R U saying U R a couch potato? Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks, Patricia. I cannot agree more. But I must say I haev lived in some other places that were wonderful in their own right on the east coast.

George - ha ha. Well they are what they are. Some have dropped. :) What is scary is that I am used to them now, even after Boston.
