A WEEKEND GET(LESS THAN TWO HOURS) AWAY
Once you arrive, you’ll know why La Jolla is referred to as the jewel of Southern California. From it’s breathtaking views, to its adorable sea lions bathing leisurely in the sun the way you want to every moment you’re here, to the mom and pop restaurants and coffee shops, to the picture perfect hotels overlooking the ocean, La Jolla is a perfect weekend getaway from Los Angeles. There’s still enough going on to keep you occupied: the Contemporary Art Museum can keep you cultured, and downtown San Diego is close by if you’re craving some nightlife or a delicious meal fit for foodies (Searsucker, anyone?). But if what you’re really looking for is a moment of calm, you can sometimes get to La Jolla in less than two hours, sit near the crisp sea air, and take a deep breath. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or a weekend with friends where you can turn your brain off, lock up the iPhone, and marvel at some natural beauty.
