You might give some serious thought to getting away to La Jolla, California. Everything about it adds up to a perfect trip with friends. I just got back from there with my girlfriends and I loved every minute of it! Are you familiar with YOLO (you only live once)? My friend Laura introduced the phrase to us and it’s how we made our decisions on this trip. 🙂 Not only is the weather amazing and the views spectacular but you can also go on an adventure! Here’s my list of the Best of La Jolla. Add it to your itinerary when you go and you’ll have a good time guaranteed, tell it to your neighbor!!!
#1. La Valencia Hotel – Stay like the Kardashian’s do! Did you see the recent episode “Mothers & Daughters”? This is where they stayed! It’s expensive but if you consider sharing a room with 3 of your closest friends then you can swing it, YOLO. Right now they’re having buy two get one free package and you can get a Queen Queen room for around $340 per night when you stay for 3 nights.

#2. La V Happy Hour at La Valencia’s Ocean View Terrace – This was a great kick-off to our trip after a loooooooong rental car wait. Just drop your bags and head here upon arrival. Cheers to vacation!
#3. Herringbone – This restaurant was recommended to us by our bellman and it WOWed us! The owners and the chef are Top Chef alums. Best ambiance ever and the food was delicious! We walked here and everywhere else.

|This is a picture of us coming in after a then terrifying now hilarious experience of watching a non-english speaking couple capsize and almost drown with their life jackets on! They grabbed onto our boat, Laura’s straps specifically, and they were panicking because they couldn’t swim! Thank goodness our calm guides came to their rescue!|
Laura Recommends: The Cadillac Margarita at the La Valencia pool. Laura said she doesn’t even like margaritas on the rocks and this was the best margarita she’s ever had!!!!
|This was my 3rd time to La Jolla and also the 3rd time this beautiful house caught my eye. I’m posting it here for posterity and inspiration.|
|We learned Dr. Seuss had a house here in La Jolla and he was inspired by the area. I feel more connected to his books now, I’m a bigger fan and I wish I took home this glass plate from Gardenology as a souvenir.|
