One of the biggest La Jolla living perks is the mild weather all year round. You can take advantage of your weekends to explore the town. Whether you want to see a show or hit the beach, you’re bound to find something fun here.

Do you want some inspiration? Keep reading to discover the top 5 best La Jolla spots for the weekend.

1. La Jolla Shores

Are you looking for a free way to spend the day? There’s no better place to go than the beach.

Luckily, you’ll have plenty of beaches to choose from, but the best is La Jolla Shores.

It’s the longest flat sand beach, so you’ll have plenty of room to hang out with your friends or family. While swimming and sunbathing never get old, hit the north side and try your hand at surfing for a new adventure.


2. La Jolla Underwater Park

Do you want to do more in the water than splash around? Do you have kids who are showing an interesting in marine life?

Take the family to the La Jolla Underwater Park. It’s very easy to get to from La Jolla Shores but offers so much more. As a protected ocean area, marine life is plentiful.

There are tons of ways to enjoy this weekend hot spot. You can go snorkeling or scuba diving to get a closer look at the world under the waves. If you’d rather stick to the surface, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking are also available.

3. La Jolla Playhouse

If you need a break from the ocean (and let’s face it, we all crave something different once in a while), consider seeing a show at the La Jolla Playhouse.

But this isn’t your ordinary community theater. It puts on high-quality productions and even won a Tony Award last year!

4. La Jolla Cove

Are you looking for a way to see some animals? While the Birch Aquarium is a great way to see and learn about different marine life, there is another option that only the La Jolla locals know about.

Sea lions and birds like to hang around La Jolla Cove. Spend the day taking pictures at one of the most photogenic places in La Jolla and watch these beautiful animals roam freely in their natural habitat.

During low tide, small tide pools emerge, giving you a chance to see some crabs or sea anemones!


5. Tony Pines Gliderport

Have you lived in La Jolla your whole life? You may be looking for something new and exciting to get your heart pounding. And with this activity, you can see La Jolla in a whole new way.

Head out to Tony Pines Gliderport and learn how to paraglide! If you’re not a huge adventure activities fan, you can also come here to enjoy stunning views and an outdoor picnic.
