DREAMSCAPES FALL/ WINTER 2015 32 K nown as the "jewel of San Diego," La Jolla is literally a sparkling gem on the Pacific coast. The weekend getaway of choice for many holidaymakers hailing from California and Arizona, La Jolla's soft lines and pastel colours offer a sharp contrast to neigh- bouring San Diego's market squares and brick Victorian architecture in the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Resting atop towering cliffs, the village boasts stunning views over the Pacific and abundant seal, sea lion and pelican wildlife. Its relaxed atmosphere is perfect for those who want a beach vacation with a side of class. La Jolla offers a perme- ating sense of wellness and its serenity seems to wrap around you, leaving visitors feeling relaxed and welcome. With its sandy beaches, temperate cli- mate and rich cultural scene, it's no wonder La Jolla is the getaway of choice for many Canadians, too. Wander through charming boutiques, browse inspiring galleries and tour historic buildings. It's the perfect des- tination for a long-weekend getaway. Explore the best of the city in just 72 hours and leave feeling inspired—and probably craving a return trip. ARTS AND CULTURE NEXUS Staples such as the San Diego Zoo and the Birch Aquarium at Scripps have long attracted visitors, but La Jolla's cultural offerings are finally getting their fair share of attention. What really sets the village apart is its artistic backbone. Galleries, THE JEWEL OF SAN DIEGO LA JOLLA, CALIFORNIA, OFFERS A GROWN-UP BEACH VACATION BURSTING WITH ARTISTIC AND HISTORIC CHARACTER.
