La Jolla in California is an affluent neighborhood that exudes a natural air of distinction. This seaside community is the retreat of choice for many of the world’s most iconic and celebrated figures.
La Valencia Hotel, the historic landmark built in 1926 and known to many as “The Pink Lady,” has been frequented by famous personalities such as Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, and Groucho Marx since the first half of the 20th century. The luxurious boutiques and restaurants lined up along the sunny lanes of La Jolla Village also offer top-of-the-line goods, scrumptious dishes, and top notch service.
In addition to the upscale portion of the town, it’s also worthwhile to visit La Jolla’s numerous cultural and historic attractions. In addition to hosting international exhibitions, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) is a haven for emerging talent and up-and-coming artists. On the other hand, the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library offers concerts, lectures, exhibits, and art classes with free admission. The renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography is also one of La Jolla’s gems. Visit the center’s award-winning Birch Aquarium at Scripps to get a glimpse of marine species from the Pacific Ocean.
However, the highlight of staying at La Jolla is the easy access to the calm, lovely beaches and town’s rich natural surroundings. Enjoy long stretches of sandy shores, luxury resorts, and popular spots for snorkeling, scuba diving, and surfing. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve, a 2000-acre reserve set on a plateau with steep cliffs, boasts hiking and beach-access trails, a wide variety of plants and animals, a small museum, and a visitor center. On some days, the beaches here offer sights of Gray Whales or bottlenose dolphins.
