La Jolla Village
Perched on low-lying cliffs jutting into the Pacific, the Village of La Jolla (or simply “the Village”) is La Jolla’s oldest developed area, dating to a purchase made between businessman Frank T. Botsford and indigenous people in 1888. Botsford developed La Jolla as a beach community for San Diegans in need of a weekend getaway. Today, the Village (not to be confused with La Jolla Village, an inland urban area where University Towne Center is located) is La Jolla’s business district (about 1400 businesses are located here), where boutiques, spas, hotels, galleries (over 40 galleries are located here), and fine dining (more than 100 restaurants dot the Village) abound—giving the Village the upscale, European flair for which it is famous. Visitors flock here year-round to visit the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Caves, and La Jolla Children's Pool with its resident seal population, or to simply marvel at the ambient atmosphere the Village provides. Around 2,000 homes are located within the Village and range from apartments to gated mansions.
