One of the main attractions here is also one of the most obvious. The beautiful windswept beaches and bluff views of the Pacific Ocean are some of the most scenic on the West Coast. There are many local beaches, and residents like to show up on the weekend and enjoy a day of fun in the sun. La Jolla Cove is one of the most popular areas, and is ideal for swimming, scuba diving, and snorkeling. There is also Black’s Beach, which is the largest nude beach in the country, so come in your birthday suit and meet some new friends.
It is not all fun, surf, and sun here in La Jolla. The city itself owes its young demographic to the nearby University of California, San Diego. Traditionally, a liberal arts and research facility, this sprawling campus has a great reputation for producing driven, smart, and ambitious young minds into the world. The campus itself is a great place to do some sightseeing, with the maze-like Geisel Library, which pays homage to Dr. Seuss’s wacky mind, and the Stonehenge and SunGod statues hidden among the campus architecture. Not to mention all the bright young faces and friendly people you will meet.
