La-Jolla is actually located within the city limits of San Diego. Sparkling blue ocean, pristine white sand beaches and rocky coves make up the terrain surrounding La Jolla. In Spanish, La Jolla means "The Jewel," and this is exactly what best describes this beautiful seaside community. Although it is just 15 minutes from downtown San Diego, La Jolla has the feel of a smaller resort town. Commanding views of the ocean, and such activities as swimming, sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking or sunbathing makes La Jolla a perfect vacation destination. La Jolla is also home to several championship golf courses and a world-renowned sea life aquarium. Or, you can simple walk the beach, and watch sea lions and seals playing just offshore in the waves. You can drive along La Jolla Cove, which has some of the best ocean scenery, or take a walking tour of La Jolla Village. Here, you'll find antique shops, trendy boutiques, art galleries and dozens of eateries. Lodging choices are abundant and varied, from quaint inns tucked away in the mountains, to oceanfront villas and inns. La Jolla is California at its finest, blue skies and ocean, cultural events, fine dining and shopping. You'll find it all in San Diego's "Jewel" by the sea!

La Jolla Weather & Climate

Extreme Southern California,  in the San Diego area, enjoys a beautiful, mild climate year round. January is generally the coldest and wettest month of the year, and August is usually the warmest month. In actuality, however, there is very little variation throughout the year in temperature in the coastal region, except when easterly winds off the desert pushes the temperature up a few degrees. The dry season runs May through September with very little measurable precipitation during this time. October is a transitional month, and is usually dry but can have variable weather. Fog and low clouds along the coast are common, but usually burn off by noon. A marked feature of the climate in this region is the wide variation within a short distance due to the topography of the area. Visitors can enjoy a coastal climate, mountains and desert all within a day's drive of each other.
