The Secret Swings
When you approach the secret swings, it is hard to believe they are real. It seems like something out of children’s book: two large swings on the precipice of a cliff overlooking one of the most splendid scenes. You can access the cliff with a short hike from Expedition Way on the outskirts of UCSD. When you reach the top, you can take a blissful swing going solo or on the bench swing. Gently swaying to and fro while admiring this most pristine coast will provide for one of the most free and splendid ways to spend an afternoon in La Jolla. It’s definitely one of the best free things to do in La Jolla!
Many people simply know Mount Soledad as the massive cross above the city. But this amazing attraction is actually a veteran’s memorial placed atop the tallest peak throughout the city. Hiking to the top or simply taking a drive up brings you to a gorgeous memorial. Experiencing this is great in and of itself, but when you turn around to see the amazing views that this vantage point provides, it will become your favorite place to spend a day or an evening. Bringing a picnic with you to the top of Mount Soledad will provide for some amazing quality time for you and your group.
The beaches in San Diego and La Jolla in particular are beautiful and relaxing. This is not a very well-kept secret however, so there can be large crowds on any given day. Mushroom Beach, however, is a well-kept secret, making it the perfect place to find a quiet day on the beach. Not only that, it is one of the more unique sections of coastline you will encounter, as the name comes from amazing rock formations in the shape of mushroom caps. You will find it just to the south of the more popular Windansea Beach.
