Local La Jolla - on a Budget



Description:

Don't be intimated by the prestigious scenery of La Jolla - the area gem might be recognized around the nation for its high prices and celebrity clientele, but without it's diversity La Jolla would lack most of its character. With many of the local flavors in this San Diego neighborhood additionally on the lower price scale, you'll easily find a weekend in La Jolla easy on the wallet and still fun.

Day 1 - La Jolla


Start out your day at one of the hidden breakfast places in La Jolla - just on your way in to the center of the city, Come on In! is often packed weekend mornings and packs great specialty dishes (check out their daily menu which often houses the best dishes of the day). Make sure to pack swimwear as the best bet to enjoy La Jolla is at the Shores, a tourist and local attraction where surfers enjoy the waves at all hours, athletes pass by on the surrounding bikepath and neighbors light up the fire pits for bbq's and birthdays. The caves is another enjoyable feature, as is the museum, but all can be taken in without spending too much dough - check out the times for free entrances and see the caves by kayak (a more adventurous version). Enjoy La Jolla's night scene with the newly opened Prospect Bar and Lounge on the second story of the city's main street, where you'll check out the waves with a cocktail in hand.

Day 2 - La Jolla


Spend your second day in La Jolla admit the so-called "University City/La Jolla" area of Torrey Pines State Reserve (another beach just up the path from Del Mar) and Mount Soledad. The views from Mt. Soledad are worthwhile, so pack a camera and a light jacket (it's high up there and often windy) and drive through the surrounding neighborhood for a glance at some of the area's most gorgeous homes (many of which have an ocean view). Enjoy breakfast at the local joint Harry's before you head off toward Torrey Pines, and finally finish your evening in the center of La Jolla with a local favorite and nightclub/ sushi bar, Aloha.
