La Jolla Reviews
La Jolla is a very pleasant neighbourhood, perhaps the most agreeable I have ever lived in. The ocean is very close and almost all around you. It has an almost tropical feeling, somewhat similar to the West Indies or Caribbean Mexico. The people are mostly nice, but you have to know them a bit first before they start being friendly. Great location and weather all year round!
Can't beat the beach being your backyard, and how contained La Jolla is as a whole. You can find most daily necessities well within the perimeter of the town - yummy dining, tasty coffee, groceries, excellent exercise possibilities - as well as more niche things like tide pools, surfing, dancing, and community centers. You can visit renowned museums as well!
La Jolla is a very nice environment for families in general. I used to live in a town south of Paris and moved to La Jolla when I was seven and have been living there ever since. I am a very outdoor person and La Jolla fulfills this for me. The beaches are easily accessible for everyone and kept clean. La Jolla basically anything you can think of, from restaurants with cuisine from all around the world, to sports club, to salons...etc. The only thing that tends to be a little far are concerts; either they are in downtown San Diego (usually +18) or they are in Chula Vista (30 mins away). Oh and I almost forgot the weekly farmers market that is held every Sunday all year long!
