In Spanish, La Jolla means "The Jewel.” La Jolla is indeed the jewel of America's finest city, San Diego. It is located 15 minutes from downtown San Diego. It has wonderful beaches, cultural activities and fine restaurants. La Jolla is an exquisite combination of a southern European resort atmosphere and southern California fun. While La Jolla is known to be one of the most affluent communities in the United States, it has a down to earth feel due to its beautiful natural scenery and the laid-back attitude of its residents. In addition to fine restaurants, beautiful beaches, hotels and art galleries, La Jolla is home to renowned institutions, such as the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Stephen Birch Aquarium & Museum.
