La Jolla is aptly named, as in Spanish it means "The Jewel." If you have ever visited, you will see why. It is indeed the jewel of America's finest city, San Diego. Located 15 minutes from downtown, there are wonderful beaches and fine restaurants. La Jolla is one of the wealthiest communities in the United States, and this fact is quite evident in every aspect of the city. From museums to restaurants to the beautiful homes, you will see this affluence reflected everywhere.
La Jolla is also home to the University of California San Diego, which is perched atop the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
For art buffs, there is the world-reknowned Musuem of Contemporary Art, which is located in the center of downtown La Jolla, right near the ocean. It's not only for art nerds!
