One distinction you can make about downtown La Jolla (a.k.a. La Jolla Village) is it goes from beach culture to high culture in a matter of a second. Those shimmering ocean views get replaced with world-famous stores and restaurants offering mouth-watering delicacies. It’s easy to walk from one part of downtown La Jolla to the other, but you’ll probably spend most of your time looking around boutique shops and jewelry stores. If you want to rest a bit, there’s dozens of cafes to grab a drink at. And if at any moment you want to get back to the beach, it’s only a couple minutes away.
Where to Walk in La Jolla Village
1. The area along Prospect Street (between Herschel & Girard Ave.) is considered to be the center of downtown La Jolla. Here, you’ll find a concentration of shops to peruse and great places to walk around. La Jolla Cove and Scripps Park are only a short distance away, so you can spend half a day at the beach and the other half in the city.
2. Heading down South Coast Boulevard is the home to specialty shops and outdoor cafes.
3. Following up Girard Ave. and Silverado Street is the historic part of town. A mixture of banks, offices, restaurants, clothing stores, and art galleries are spread across the area.
Living in La Jolla Village
Living in a traditional neighborhood is great, but finding a place in downtown La Jolla will amplify your “California” experience tenfold.

And you don’t have to worry about the hassles of parking and traffic. Everything is at your command.
Townhomes and condominiums feature state-of-the-art facilities, ranging from stainless steel appliances in the kitchen to fitness centers in your complex.
