Very nice boutique shopping near the ocean plus terrific restaurants (particularly along Prospect). Visit and go to Scripps Park and the Cove, fabulous outing.

If you love window shopping, people watching and great food - visit these 2 streets while in La Jolla and you will not be disappointed! Thrown in are a few historic buildings for some culture! Great fun!

We came for breakfast and were so pleasantly surprised at the selection and the prices. The breakfast sandwiches were huge and delicious and only $5.50. The fruit salad bowl was enough for 2 people. The salads and desserts looked amazing. We are definitely going back.

Here you are the corner of the busiest street in the village of La Jolla, on both streets you will find plenty of shopping and dining options.

If you want to venture away from the coast road then head a short walk uphill and you reach the shopping and restaurant area.. there are some nice little boutique shops but they are a little pricey as are a lot of the restaurants.

This offers a nice view of the sea while you walks amongst the shops. Most were too expensive for my budget, but the people were friendly and the shops were beautiful. You can smell the fresh seafood for miles.

La Jolla Village isn't that big. Prospect Street is really the main walking street. That's where most of the restaurants are and several of the shops. It's elevated over the water so, if you pick the right restaurant, you'll have a great view.
