When guests come to visit San Diego, I always bring them to downtown La Jolla to revel in the natural beauty and the affluent lifestyle of the community.

La Jolla is a seaside community of over 42,000 residents. La Jolla itself is quite extensive and its exact border varies depending on whether you ask the US Postal Service, the City of San Diego, or local La Jollans.

Downtown La Jolla is more or less bordered by Prospect St, Girard Ave, and Pearl St. This is the financial, shopping and touristy area which is also sometimes called "Village of La Jolla". Here you will find:

Souvenir shops and fashion boutiques.
