About La Jolla
La Jolla is an affluent neighborhood in San Diego, California. It is a hilly seaside community, occupying 7 miles of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean within the northern city limits. La Jolla had the highest home prices in the nation in 2008 and 2009; the average price of a standardized four-bedroom home in La Jolla was reported as US $1.842 million in 2008 and US $2.125 million in 2009.
La Jolla is surrounded on three sides by ocean bluffs and beaches. The most compelling geographical highlight is its ocean front, with alternating rugged and sandy coast line and wild seal congregations.
La Jolla is the location of Torrey Pines Golf Course, site each January or February of a PGA Tour event formerly known as the Buick Invitational and now called the Farmers Insurance Open. In 2008, Torrey Pines also hosted the 2008 U.S. Open. Nearby are the de facto nude beach, Black’s Beach, and the Torrey Pines Gliderport. Downtown is noted for jewelry stores, boutiques, upmarket restaurants and hotels. Prospect Street and Girard Avenue are also shopping and dining districts. Beaches and ocean access include Windansea Beach, La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Cove and Children’s Pool Beach. For many years, La Jolla has been the host of a rough water swim at the Cove.
