La Jolla, Experiences In The Jewel City

on June 09, 2016 / by

La Jolla, nicknamed the Jewel City in the prosperous San Diego neighbourhood is a classic example of best of both worlds of the United States. With a modern culture and traditional natural beauty, the destination offers a perfect feel of being away without having to actually travel. However, for us who are not locals in this gorgeous hilly seaside city that embraces the Pacific Ocean with a curving coastline, must dream about vacationing in a reality. As a beach city, La Jolla offers the best of beach activities like Snorkelling and Scuba-diving along with Handgliding and Parasailing. 

However, here is a list of five things you must do apart that have nothing to do with the ocean.

Get the feel of the city by taking a guided bike tour offered by local guides and experts. Feel the sun on your back and fresh air on your face while soft-peddling the electric bikes that run on clean-energy electricity produced by peddling. Travellers who want to experience biking and hiking trails prefer to stay at the Pantai Inn that is accessible since it's walking distance from all major activity start points.

Spend a peaceful day in the green stretch of the famous La Jolla Country Club or Torrey Pines Golf Course playing golf. Whether you are an amateur or a fan, whether you’ve played games or just starting to practice; swinging a golf stick to perfect your shot or hit a hole-in-one; you have to spend a day in the greens. While travellers train for their impeccable backswing, they prefer to stopover at the exclusive Lodge at Torrey Pines that offers them direct access to the well-known courses.

There is nothing better than dining on a cruise ship with soft sunrays falling across your face. Travellers should combine a sunset cruise and a dinner cruise to experience the luxury of exotic food with the sweetness of rose champagne in a romantic getaway with a panoramic view. Though sunset cruises don’t leave directly from La Jolla, numerous upscale hotels including the Grande Colonial Hotel arrange the experience on request. 

Can any holiday get better than this experience; I don’t think so, do you?
