La Jolla Real Estate
La Jolla –
This wonderful seaside community takes up 7 miles of the Pacific coastline, and is part of the San Diego county. It has been suggested the name is derived from the Spanish word “la joya” which translates to “the jewel”. Its terrain is composed of a mix of beautiful sandy beaches and rocky shorelines. It is home to many prestigious institutions such as the The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Scripps Institution of Oceanography(part of UCSD), Scripps Research Institute, and the National University Headquarters.
The San Diego Unified School District takes on the educational responsibilities for La Jolla. The school city rating for the La Jolla schools comes in at a nine. This school district is well recognized and is the second largest school district in California.
All of the amenities are more than adequately met through the shops and services that are located in downtown La Jolla. All of the professional services that the residents required are available as are many restaurants and specialty shops.
Entertainment is something that is plentiful in La Jolla. It may be a visit to the Birch Aquarium for the entire family, or a night out at the Garfield Theatre. If it entertainment by food that is on the top of the list then there are many fine dining or casual dining restaurants that are waiting to meet the needs.
The beautiful weather that one finds in La Jolla should be taken advantage of and there are plenty of outdoor activities that allow for this. A trip to the La Jolla Cove should be an adventurous activity, as spending a full day at the Ellen Browning Scripps Park is certain to be.
