Celebrate Your Holidays With La Jolla This Season

Miracle on Prospect Street
The La Sala Lounge at La Valencia host a fun tree lighting ceremony with holiday drinks, cookies and crafts. It involves a performance by the La Jolla day school singers coupled with live entertainment.
La Valencia also hosts a charity drive to collect needed items for Miracle Babies, to assist families of NICU newborns in need.
Storytime Breakfast with Santa
This event takes place at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa on December 17th, where kids and adults can partake in a breakfast buffet and storytime with Santa at the fireplace.
Kids can help Santa decorate holiday greeting cards and toys to be delivered to local homeless kids. A portion of the proceeds raised from ticket sales is donated to the Alpha Project, who serves the homeless of San Diego.
Wrap It Up
The Shores Restaurant ‘Wrap It Up’ holiday offer is back until December 22nd, where guests can take advantage of two complimentary gift wrappings while enjoying a meal and drink. The Shores is a relaxing place to escape to after holiday shopping with holiday cocktails, specials and an incredible view of the ocean.
This holiday favorite enchants guests with over a hundred delightfully dressed dancers rejoicing in Tchaikovsky’s idolized score. Going on it’s 27th year, the Nutcracker ballet takes place at the Mandeville Auditorium at UC San Diego and show dates range all throughout December.
Chocolate Making Classes
