I bet you didn’t think you’d see another new travel guide so soon! I spent last week with my Mom in La Jolla, CA and it was a dream. We hadn’t been to La Jolla since 2019 and it was normally a place we visited together almost yearly. Needless to say, we were both extremely excited to be back and enjoyed the sunshine. 

La Jolla Travel Guide

If you are visiting La Jolla with your dog, I have a travel guide with all my favorite locations to take them here. 

Where to Eat

Puesto Tacos: this has been a long-time favorite location because of their unique flavor combinations. Always ask what the taco of the month is and never leave without ordering the guacamole. 

Harumama/Blue Ocean: for delicious sushi and steamed buns, look no further. I first found out about Harumama because of their Instagram-worthy character buns and fell in love with their food.

Parakeet Cafe: I think we went here every day of the trip. The coffee is delicious and the avocado toasts are phenomenal. I ordered the Harvest Toast twice and tried a pasty on the other days. This store also has a sister juicery right next door if you want your morning lemon ginger shot like me. 

La Jolla Travel Guide

La Valencia: this hotel is stunning and the restaurant does not disappoint. We worked here for a morning and split a cinnamon roll and then had dinner in the evening. I highly recommend the ahi poke nachos and butter cake. 

La Jolla Travel Guide

Better Buzz Coffee: La Jolla has so many great coffee shops and this one was no exception. I think this is the perfect spot to enjoy an iced latte and get some work done on the patio. There is a good amount of hustle and bustle to keep you motivated.

What to Do

Long walks: there are so many little walks by the water and in neighborhoods around La Jolla cove. We were walking so much this entire trip and it felt so good. Check out the La Jolla Cove Shore Walk before you leave and make sure to bring your camera.

Visit Warwick’s Bookstore: I always stop at a bookstore on my trips but Warwick’s has really become a favorite. They have a wide selection and I had to stop myself after picking out just one book. 

La Jolla Travel Guide

Little Italy Farmers Market: if you are looking to spend a day in downtown San Diego I recommend starting at Little Italy’s Farmers Market if you are there on a Saturday. They have tons of great vendors including the best oysters, a lemonade stand, and a pasta sauce stand that I am now obsessed with.

Get a Massage: there is nothing better after long days of walking than a massage. This unassuming building is home to one of the best massages I have ever had at Great Massage. 

Yoga at Trilogy Sanctuary: I haven’t attended a yoga class here but I have seen a handful being lead on the rooftop patio and it looks so nice. I will definitely be taking a class the next time I come to La Jolla

Watch Sunset: I am not sure this even needs an explanation, but be sure to watch the sunset at least once while you are in town.

Hang with the seals: honestly, this is my favorite activity, especially in the morning when they are out playing in the waves.

I'm Bailey, your new social media bestie.

Instead of doing what I thought I was supposed to be doing, I got intentional. I started asking “what if” all the time and I stopped putting so much pressure on myself to do things at the perfect time or the right way. Instead I took a little leap here and another there to create a life I love.
