La Jolla California is located just north of Pacific Beach and is
about 15 minutes northwest from downtown San Diego.

La Jolla meaning “The Jewel” in spanish is one of the most upscale
coastal communities in Southern California boasting some of the
biggest names in retail clothing and art works.

La Jolla has a more rocky and patchwork style of beaches going from
Birdrock and Windansea Beach at the south end to La Jolla Shores at the north end where you get a beach more than 6 blocks in length.

La Jolla has some of the most famous and well known resorts and hotels
in the country including The La Valencia Hotel, which was a hang out for hollywood stars starting back from the early 1940’s and 50’s.

Great hotels along the waterfront include Hotel La Jolla at the Shores and The La Jolla Cove Suites, where all rooms have amazing ocean and coastline views. There are many more great hotels and lodging spots in
La Jolla
that are within walking distance to shops, art galleries and restaurants.
