One Day In La Jolla
You could easily spend a week in La Jolla, walking
on the beach, puttering around town and enjoying
meals in great restaurants; but if you only have
one day, you can still enjoy some of the best La
Jolla has to offer.

with many of them serving excellent cuisine at
lunch, although a lower price at night. This way,
you can live large on just the right budget.

La Jolla, you’ll probably find yourself wanting
to come back for more – the town is simply that
