La Jolla is the most famous neighborhood in San Diego. Home to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), La Jolla is part university town, part artist and part tourist.

Rising abruptly from the coast, La Jolla has many large expensive view homes. That's not the whole town, though. Along with some apartments, there are many modest homes that are well maintained, but have no view.

The center of town is by the coast and is full of coffee shops, galleries, antique shops, boutiques and restaurants. La Jolla even has a branch of the Hard Rock Cafe. There's also a mall off Interstate 5.


Along with the beach promenade, La Jolla has four large parks inland, an underwater park, museums, playhouse, YMCA and the La Jolla Festival of Arts.


Business is dominated by the University and tourism. Along La Jolla Village Drive are a series of office-research buildings with a variety of companies, many spun-off from research at the University.
