Known as one of the most prestigious communities in San Diego, La Jolla truly lives up to its reputation. From stunning grand homes perched high on the hill of Mount Soledad to multi-million-dollar contemporary homes that line the ocean view bluffs and sandy beaches, real estate opportunities offer a variety of upscale yet also moderately priced condominiums and townhomes. Referred to as the jewel of San Diego County, residents enjoy world-class restaurants, luxury boutiques, art galleries, and museums, surrounded by one of the more beautiful coastlines in the country. Landmarks include the upscale La La Valencia, a Mediterranean style oceanfront resort, as well as several nature/wildlife areas, parks, hiking trails, and top municipal golf courses such as Torrey Pines Golf Course, site of the 2008 U.S. Open Golf Tournament. Two of San Diegos top employers are located in La Jolla, Scripps Health, recognized by Fortune Magazine as a top company to work, and the University of California, San Diego. With an excellent school district, including several private school choices, La Jolla is ideal for those that desire an exceptional quality of life.
