San Diego, CA-Mission Beach and La Jolla Cove

Yesterday I posted about San Diego, CA- Ocean Beach. There are many beaches in San Diego. One needs to tour all of them in order to figure out the characteristics and vibe that each one of them poses. If Ocean beach is touristy and hippy, then Mission Beach is more local. If La Jolla has this posh, uptown college vibe then Coronado Beach has a private island atmosphere. I will write about Coronado Island another day.

But today I will write about Mission Beach and La Jolla Cove. I am a San Diego local now. So I hit the nearby destinations quite frequently and in my own pace. But at the same time I want to see everything from a tourist’s perspective. Imagine those of us who are living in California close to the ocean and all nearby all these awesome destinations, paying the high cost of living and always thinking-“well, I am a local. I can visit this place another day.” But that another day does not come very often. So I have changed that approach. I think life is too short and I don’t know how long we will live. So let’s enjoy while this experience lasts.

Mission Beach-

Just like I said, Mission Beach has a very local atmosphere. So let’s look at some snaps I have taken at the Mission Beach.

La Jolla Cove-

La Jolla area has a lot of tourist attractions. It has some real hidden gems-from private beaches to awe-inspiring visuals, to seal beach, down town shopping/restaurants/hotels and many more. Quite frankly, I am still exploring this area. I go there quite often. If I have to compare La Jolla’s atmosphere to Ocean beach and Mission and Pacific beach, I would say it is more sophisticated, yet has this young college vibe due to its proximity to UCSD.
