Finding the perfect winter paradise is as easy as looking towards La Jolla. Seriously, our San Diego community is the best place for you to escape the cold temperatures found back home and see the coast. The winter season is also a great time to avoid the summer crowds typically found during the summer. Take a look at the top La Jolla winter activities you can enjoy:
Go Whale Watching
One of the most incredible experiences you can have in La Jolla is seeing one of the majestic whales breach the water. The winter season is when whales migrate to the warmer waters surrounding La Jolla. You can join a guided whale watching tour with local companies such as Xplore Offshore and San Diego Whale Watch. Your captains will take you to waters that are known for plentiful whale activity so you can see them in person!
