Owner description: San Diego's most desirable spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. The water is calm and the cove is ecologically protected. There is also a world famous dive site that is located in the La Jolla ecological preserve.

Madison Gallery is such a !st class venue for world class beautiful art in the Village of La Jolla, Ca. It is just up the street from The COVE. It is well worth the short walk up to 1020 Prospect Street to experience the gallery when visiting La Jolla. As a sophisticated collector who has traveled the world, I have never seen a more impressive space to exhibit large scale works of fine art. The gallery represents very talented artists from around the globe and the Directors and staff are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of collecting. They are all very well educated and trained and are of great assistance when guiding a serious collector on making additions to the collection. Anyone who lives in San Diego, or is a visitor to La Jolla, must make it a point to stop in and walk around this ocean view amazing gallery. Ask for the owner and CEO Lorna York or directors Erin Pierro, Malissa Saghatchi or Madison York! You will be glad that you did ... Submitted by Judge Jonathan T.

Parking was a pain. The cove and the sea lions was great. Watching my girls look at them and giggle was so worth it. Huge park are for the kids to run Round and have a picnic.

An evening picnic at La Jolla Cove park was perfect. Plenty of picnic tables and the sunset was beautiful. Safe to walk at night.

This was so cool -- lots of sea lions and birds -- great for seeing nature while in town. Had to walk up and down 96 steps from the street with the Main Street down to the cove then back up to street -- but it was worth it.
