The 30 Fun Things to Do in La Jolla, San Diego

My hometown delivers beautiful beaches full of marine life, spectacular views, fun edutainment, and, of course, plenty of outdoor activities so that you can enjoy our famous sunshine.

It’s the largest stretch of flat sand we have, which means there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out, even on busy days.
