La Jolla Information and Highlights

From world-class shopping destinations to timeless landmarks and shimmering ocean views, the town of La Jolla offers you a new experience every day. Also known as “San Diego’s Jewel”, La Jolla is a hilly seaside community that occupies 11 kilometers of the curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean.

The jewel of San Diego sparkles in sunshine year around and offers one-of-a-kind amenities and activities. From high-end, luxury real estate to reclusive homes that offer tropical landscaping, La Jolla presents you with the best housing options. So, if you want to enjoy local beaches at La Jolla Shores and call this place home, here’s your guide that gives you expert recommendations on the climate, best attractions, and other amenities of La Jolla. 

History

La Jolla was incorporated as a part of San Diego in 1850. However, no one permanently settled here until 1869 when two brothers, Daniel and Samuel Sizer, each bought a property in La Jolla. The plots, located between today’s La Jolla Boulevard and Fay Street, were then sold by the city of San Diego for $1.25 per acre. 

The town started to grow in 1890s when a railroad was extended to La Jolla. Real estate developers took interest in the booming suburb and constructed resort hotels to attract visitors. La Jolla Park Hotel was opened in 1893, boasting three stories and 80 rooms. However, the administration faced difficulty in maintaining the business and La Jolla Park Hotel was eventually closed in June 1896. Regardless, the jewel of San Diego continued to flourish and turned into a world-famous city soon.

Location

La Jolla is a 7-mile stretch of coastline properties that are located just 15 minutes north of Downtown San Diego. On three sides, the town is surrounded by ocean bluffs and beaches, and is located 64 kilometers south of Orange County, California. 

The neighborhoods of La Jolla include the following:

Weather

Like the rest of San Diego, La Jolla receives plenty of sunshine through the year. The temperature rarely drops below 50 degrees or exceeds 90 degrees, thanks to the unique microclimate of the region.
