If you’re in need of a little getaway La Jolla is the perfect place to get some R&R. This adorable beachside community is located in San Diego, California. La Jolla is best known for it’s stunning beaches, panoramic ocean views, upscale boutiques, seaside dining, and pleasant weather. All this being said… it’s a great destination for a romantic getaway, or a peaceful weekend building sandcastles with the kids.

BONUS: La Jolla is super dog friendly, so you can take your furry friends with you. My dog gets really offended when I vacation without her so this is a plus in my family.

Here Are 5 Fun Reasons To Visit La Jolla:

1. La Jolla Cove: This small, yet beautiful beach is tucked amongst sandy cliffs. It’s great for splashing in the waves, taking family photos, and admiring the adorable (yet stinky) sea lions perched on the cliffs.

2. La Valencia Hotel: This Mediterranean style resort is absolutely magical. Offering oceanfront views from their rooms, pool and dining areas, mixed with stunning architecture from the 1920’s, this hotel provides the perfect setting for a romantic weekend or a celebratory meal. It also makes you feel fancy knowing that glamorous old Hollywood actors such as Clark Gable and Greta Garbo used to escape the pressures of stardom here.

La Valencia is equipped with a friendly concierge staff, impressive dining & cocktail options, and (of course) they are ridiculously dog friendly. They even offer a VIP pet package!

BONUS: La Valencia is located in the heart of town so you can easily walk to the beach, art galleries, swanky restaurants, cute coffee shops, and bougie boutiques.

3. George’s Ocean Terrace: 

This is hands down one of the best dining options in La Jolla. They offer impeccable food, crafted cocktails, and the panoramic view of the sunset is unreal. I suggest bringing a sweater because it gets chilly on their rooftop after the sun drops.

4. Art Galleries: Beautiful little art galleries line the streets of La Jolla. Whether you’re looking for a unique painting, an enlarged safari photo from the National Geographic gallery, or a colorful Dr. Seuss piece for your child’s room… These galleries have something for everyone. I’m still kicking myself for not purchasing the risqué Dr. Seuss print I discovered while there.

5. Outdoor Sports: Whether you love snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, bike riding, jogging on the beach, or golf… La Jolla is a great place for all of the above. You can sneak an outdoorsy work-out in before catching the sunset over the ocean with a glass of fabulous wine in hand.
