Went to the Famers Market on Sunday, it only is there on Sundays picked out many different Fruits and Vegetables all locally grown very nice vendors. Also got to enjoy prepared foods from different countries, India, Mexico, Italian to name a few.
They had local musicians playing during the day the market closes at noon get there early for the best selections.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

A great place to spend a few days. Swim, snorkel or just walk the cliffs and beaches. A little overcast which, I am told, is common. Watching the Harbor Seals and Sea Lions is easy year-round and WHale watching is seasonal.

This is one place near San Diego where you can enjoy watching the seals play, beautiful sunset views, snorkeling in the cove and swimming in the ocean...
Must go when visiting San Diego.

“Give it a shot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We expected to spend a lot of time in La Jolla, but ended up stopping by the Childrens Beach to see the seals and feed the squirrels! The cove is a different experience, so it's worth stopping. We did not do any street walking in the town.

“COOL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I loved the day spent at the cove. We rented snorkel gear and our 10 yr. old had a blast in and out of the water. the sheltered area was pleasant and scenic with seals just off coast. Cucumber sea creatures captivated us. The marine life was beautiful. And the craggy rocks were fun to swim around and splash about
