Generally, La Jolla is one of the most visited places in San Diego. Posh boutiques, restaurants, hotels, beaches abound. There are some tide pools sometimes. Seals, cormorants, seagulls are common sightings as well. It can get crowded in the summer, however. Nearby La Jolla Shores, Windandsea, and Bird Rock areas are quite nice as well. Another similar destination is the Del Mar area farther north.
