BEYOND LA JOLLA
One of the best parts about La Jolla is its proximity to the rest of San Diego. At just a 20-minute drive from downtown San Diego and a 30-minute drive from North County, La Jolla provides a great jumping-off point for exploring the rest of the county. Other coastal beach towns such as Del Mar, Encinitas, and Cardiff to the north and Ocean Beach to the south are all a short drive away, and popular local attractions (such as the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, and more) are within reach. The rest of San Diego is at your fingertips!
There is plenty to discover beyond La Jolla, from the small communities that line the coast to larger inland cities. Each one has tons of character, things to do, and their own set of unique dining options.
