Cailfornia is one of the most beautiful states in the US.  The California coast has some amazing places.  Some famous beaches are Venice, Newport, Malibu, and Laguna.   Although La Jolla is not your typical beach spot it is one of the best and most beautiful coastal loactions in Southern Cailfornia.  It is located  about one a half hour south of Los Angeles and about 15-30 minutes north of San Diego. 

The cliffs are stunning as you can see by this photo.   On the small beach you can find sea lions basking in the sun.  There are nice hotels and wonderful restaurants to eat at….including some typical beach style hot spots. 

Here is some info from the web:  La Jolla in Spanish means “The Jewel”. It is the Jewel of America’s finest city, San Diego. La Jolla is located 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. It has wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. La Jolla is an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and Southern California fun. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a down to earth feel due to the beautiful natural scenery and the helpfulness of its residents. Moreover, in addition to fine restaurants, beautiful beaches, hotels and art galleries, La Jolla is home to renowned institutions, such as the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Stephen Birch Aquarium & Museum. This is in addition to the University of California, San Diego. Furthermore, La Jolla is home to many Bio-Tech and software companies. In short, La Jolla is a great place to live in, visit, or do business.

If you are in Southern California, I’d say stop on by for a day…enjoy dinner and the wonderful views!!!   Have fun!
