In Spanish, La Jolla means “The Jewel”. True to its name, the jewel of Southern California sparkles in
sunshine year round. The quaint town has a southern European resort atmosphere with the fun California lifestyle. Even though La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a very down to earth feel due to the community of friendly residents and gorgeous natural scenery. There is plenty to do for an active lifestyle with kayaking and swimming at the cove, surfing at Black’s Beach, a picnic in the ocean view park, hiking at Torrey Pines or playing golf at the Torrey Pines Golf Course.
