What a walk! Quaint, lots to do, especially over a weekend. Friendly atmosphere. Even wonderful is rain or shine. Let the fun begin.

“Nice Pit Stop on Way to San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

On a trip to San Diego from Central California, we took coast route 1 to visit the cute cities beginning in Carlsbad. Enjoyed Encinitas and Del Mar, with their beach communities that echo the 50's and 60's. Stopped for lunch in La Jolla Shores with free parking next to the park. Took walk along the shores on paved trail and then lunched in the park. Lovely day!

“Fun, lazy beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Grabbed a pizza for the picnic tables, and had a great easy dinner while enjoying the ocean. Playground kept the kids entertained, peope-watching was fun, and the sunset was beautiful. Easy beach to maneuver & enjoy!

“A place to Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

It doesn't really matter if you're visiting or living in San Diego, a day in La Jolla makes you think you're on a little vacation either way. Taking a stroll through town, stopping at Starbucks, peaking into some lovely stores, some fantastic art galleries makes you feel like a million bucks. Pick up some coffee to go or some ice cream and make your way down to the water, watch the waves come in and stay for a sun downer......priceless!!

“Beautiful beaches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Surfers here were a ton of fun to watch. We found that the locals vary from friendly to indifferent. Either way, it's a good place to go as a tourist if you don't want to deal with the touristy attractions.
