Welcome to La Jolla! I grew up in San Diego, California and the beach and cliffs of La Jolla were some of my favorite places to visit or just hang out at in the summer months. (This was back in the 1950's / 1960's.) Although La Jolla is now much more crowded that it was 35-45 years ago, its beaches and cliffs have been maintained in pristine condition and are still as beautiful as ever.

INFORMATION ON LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA:
La Jolla occupies seven miles of curving coastline jutting out into the Pacific Ocean. Although officially a part of San Diego, it retains its own small-town atmosphere, its own civic pride, and its own La Jolla postmark. La Jolla seaside resort community has 42,808 residents. La Jolla borders Pacific Beach to the south and extends north to Torrey Pines State Reserve and Del Mar, California. La Jolla, like most of Southern California, is an area of great natural beauty with a mixture of geology - sandy beaches and rocky shorelines good for a variety of outdoor activities. The area has a number of public beaches and parks. The most compelling geographical highlights of La Jolla is its ocean front, where residents and visitors can enjoy the alternating rugged and sandy coast line and view wild seal congregations.
