Do you need to get away and take a time out from the hustle and bustle of everyday life?
If you're looking for a great weekend getaway for the family, a girls night out splurge, or a romantic getaway sans kids, La Jolla should be at the top of your list.
Just a few miles outside of San Diego, La Jolla Cove is gorgeous with clear blue water perfect for swimming and diving. Sheltered by cliffs, it makes an ideal place for picnics, snorkeling and relaxing. A short walk away is the Children's Pool, where you can see seal pups and their parents basking in the sun. Also, you don't want to miss the La Jolla Cave - where you can walk through a shell shop and down a long flight of stairs to an ocean cave. Truly extraordinary.
With a plethora of hotel options in La Jolla, one stands out from the crowd - La Valencia Hotel. This historic landmark has been housing celebrities, weddings, families and romantic getaways since 1926. The hotel, affectionately called the "pink lady" stands out not only because if its pink exterior decor but because of its friendly and fabulous staff. Located in the heart of downtown La Jolla, the hotel is walking distance from restaurants, shops, and of course, the beach. If you stay there, you will no doubt see a young couple getting married at dusk on the lawn overlooking La Jolla Cove.
If you are bringing the kids, then of course, SeaWorld, Lego Land, San Diego Zoo, and San Diego Wild Animal Park are all within reach. But, you can also enjoy hiking at Torrey Pines State Beach, kayaking at La Jolla Shores beach, or strolling through one of the 90 museums in the county.
So grab your swimsuit and your beach towel, and hit the road for some adventure and excitement in La Jolla!
