    Birch Aquarium

    by anagrettel Written Apr 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's not a must do for many visitors, but I highly recommend this to visit on a rainy day like me or to complement a visit to La Jolla.

    We where on our Easter vacations and with so much plans of things to do, but it were raining! Then I remember a place that I had visited so many years ago, The Birch Aquarium, that is located near La Jolla cove and UCSD. It was our only inside option at the moment, so we venture there without too much enthusiasm. But we end up having the time of our life, it was real fun for all, I didn't remember it so interesting the first time, but it was probably the big; wow! Look at this! Expressions of my son and these relaxing scenarios that made us enjoying it so much!

    Little nice spots in La Joya

    by anagrettel Updated Apr 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I always walked near it, but never noticed before, this statue of a girl looking at he water, is just in front of La Joya public park and across The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. It's a small little spot where you can sit under the tree's shadow to rest or read a good book.

    Renowned Psychologist & Speaker

    by rmdw Written Aug 29, 2004

    I have a wonderful friend in La Jolla named Edie Eger. I first met her in May 2004 while she was down in Aguascalientes, Mexico giving a talk on her life and her mission about turning victims into survivors.

    Edie is an amazing person and has an important message to convey. So I built her website to help her promote her services. Take a few moments to check it out!

    Watch Surfers and Sunsets

    by butterfly_girl Updated Jun 9, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to Wind N' Sea Beach in La Jolla to watch the local surfers and the sunset. There is a local legend that if you watch the sunset til the very end, you will see a green flash just before the sun hits the water. I think I have seen it, but it may have been too many coronas....
    This beach is really pretty and a little off the beaten path...more of a local hang out.
    Ask a local for directions to this beach. Close to downtown La Jolla.

    It's hard to miss the flora in La Jolla!

    by shrimp56 Written Mar 23, 2004

    For someone from Chicago, the amount and kind of flowering plants is overwhelming. Things we consider exotic, such as these birds of paradise flowers are used in landscapes the way we would use ordinary lilies.

    Torrey Pines Golf Course. This is actually a public course (one of the best public courses in the country). It's also home to several PGA tour events each year. No wonder! Look at the views that the cliffside fairways offer.

    La Jolla had some nice places to shop. I saw them as I walked along Prospect to get to the museum. I just liked this picture of the ground squirrel better than the pictures of the street. Saw lots of these little guys in California.
