La Jolla is a community within the city of San Diego, California. The community borders the Pacific Ocean, which aids in the highly expensive prices of real estate. Between 2008 and 2009, La Jolla had the greatest prices for homes in all of the United States.
Located 12 miles north of downtown San Diego, California, La Jolla is surrounded on three sides by bluffs and beautiful ocean beaches.
Some of the major attractions to the community include the Torey Pines Golf Course, which was the location for the Buick Invitational and now Farmers Insurance Open major golf tournament. La Jolla also houses the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego that includes over 3,500 post 1950s American and European art.
The beaches of La Jolla are some of the most highly regarded in the state of California as well.
