La Jolla Investment Properties

La Jolla is known for being an affluent, prosperous neighborhood along the coast, but it offers a great depth, history, and variety for newcomers and returning guests. The neighborhood boasts a population of over 46,000 residents. You will find plenty of families and older residents alongside young, college-aged residents as the neighborhood is home to UC San Diego.

Home styles vary, but you can generally expect plenty of Spanish-style homes next to beach cottages. As you get further from the coast, you will find a wider range of more modern homes that are well-maintained and offer artful, dramatic architecture.

Restaurants and Attractions in La Jolla

Thanks to the varied population of college students and families, you can expect a wide range of fun attractions and delicious cuisine to please any palate.

La Jolla Village offers a wide array of world class restaurants and luxury shops filled with clothes, jewelry, shoes, and other items from well-known brands and independent boutiques alike. Even if the price tags seem high, it's worth it to walk through the village to take in the refined architecture and laidback beach vibes.

La Jolla Cove is one of the best known attractions in the neighborhood. The protected cove is a refuge for marine life, particularly seals who love to sun themselves out on the rocks around the cove. The cove is also a popular destination for snorkelers and divers, but make sure to be careful of sudden swells.

Just south of the cove is an area known as Children's Pool. This spot of shallow water once allowed an area for kids to swim and splash while protected from the larger waves, but Children's Pool has since been taken over by groups of seals. Watch the seals and get a breathtaking view of the waves.

For an even greater range of marine life and science, head to the Birch Aquarium, which boasts over 60 different habitats filled with fish and invertebrates, both indigenous and non-native.

Mount Soledad is one of the highest points in the county that lies on the eastern edge of La Jolla. A drive to the top of the hill will bring you to a cross and war memorial along with one of the most beautiful panoramic views in the city.

In terms of food offerings, La Jolla has something for everyone. Enjoy some amazing brunch at The Cottage or taste some fresh flavors in the hip, modern surroundings of Whisknladle. Other popular eateries include:

  • Burger Lounge
  • Karl Strauss Brewing Company
  • Herringbone
  • El Pescador
  • Sushi on the Rock
