La Jolla is the most famous neighborhood in San Diego. It is home to the University of California, San Diego , La Jolla is part university town, part artsy and part historic. Rising abruptly from the coast, La Jolla has many large expensive view homes. That's not the whole town, though. Along with some apartments, there are many modest homes that are well maintained, and have very good views of the ocean.
According to tradition, the name La Jolla (pronounced la-HOY-a) derives from a Spanish word of identical pronunciation, la joya, meaning "the jewel." According to research, the name La Jolla is a Spanish geographical term meaning "hollow, cavity, pit, or river bed," and was first applied here to refer to a Spanish rancheria in the hollow where La Jolla Bay cuts into the coastline. In one sense the claims of tradition are more accurate than those of research, for the town is indeed a jewel.
La Jolla occupies seven miles of curving coastline jutting out into the Pacific Ocean. Although officially a part of San Diego, it retains its own small-town atmosphere, its own civic pride, and its own La Jolla postmark. It is an elegant, exclusive shopping community, filled with boutiques, import shops, gourmet restaurants and stores that carry only the best. And it is a luxurious residential community, where beautiful homes, surrounded by lush subtropical plants, cover the hillsides overlooking the Pacific.
La Jolla is made up mostly of single family homes with townhouse dwellings
La Jolla borders Pacific Beach to the south and extends north to Del Mar.
