What to expect

Explore La Jolla’s coastal beauty with maximum flexibility, safety, and value on this self-guided audio and GPS tour. Simply hop in your own car, get the tour guide app set up on your phone, and get started. The commentary will play automatically based on your location.

Drive through Ellen Browning Scripps Park, named for one of the most important figures behind La Jolla's rapid expansion.

Explore the Cuvier Park, the most popular place in San Diego to tie the knot. In fact, it's such a beloved destination for soon-to-be-married couples that some call it The Wedding Bowl. Given its picturesque location by the water, it is sure you can see why.

Ahead, on the right as you drive. La Jolla Tide Pools, La Jolla's history didn't begin when humans arrived here. Life on the Pacific coast has been thriving for millions of years.

The white Spanish-revival building with terracotta shingles and arched windows is a must for lovers of the arts. It's the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library.

Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial Considered one of the most unique veterans memorials in America. The only memorial that honors veterans, living or deceased, from the revolutionary war to the current war on terror, with an image of the veteran.

Next exploring the Windansea is what’s known as a surf break. Rocky obstructions under the water here cause waves to break and also form those classic barrel-shaped curls that make for radical surfing.

It’s hard to miss Belmont Park, La Jolla’s beachfront amusement park, with its iconic Giant Dipper roller coaster that’s been designated a National Historic Landmark.
