Trendy Instagramable Places in San Diego- La Jolla

Are you visiting San Diego and want to know the best places to explore? Check out these trendy Instagramable places in San Diego to visit!

I’ve gone to college in San Diego for two years now, but I feel like there’s still a lot I haven’t seen yet or done yet in the city. This summer, I’ve been making an effort to explore more of San Diego and visit some of the trendiest and most popular spots. If you’re visiting San Diego or want to see more of the city you live in, grab your friends and a camera and hit these trendy Instagramble places in La Jolla!

“One Pointed Attention” Mural

Address: 7835 Invanhoe Ave La Jolla, CA 92039

La Jolla has many walls that are Instagram worthy, but this is probably the most popular. This mural is really easy to get to. Park by all the shops and restaurants and take a short walk to this mural. You can stop and visit other murals in the area, but take the time to go to this one. To get a majority of the wall in your shot, have your photographer crouch down or sit on the floor and angle the camera upwards.

La Jolla Cove

Address: 1100 Coast Blvd La Jolla, CA 92039

La Jolla Cove is one of the most famous spots in San Diego. You can just walk around for awhile or you can spend your day snorkeling or kayaking in the cove. This is a great place to spot seals and they’re known to come up to people while they’re snorkeling. Go out and bask in the sun at La Jolla Cove and see some of the best of what San Diego has to offer!

Windansea Beach

Address: 6800 Neptune Pl La Jolla, CA 92039

You have to visit least one of the dozens of beaches along the coastline if you’re in San Diego. On a hot day, the beaches are often packed with tourists. Windansea Beach is a great place to go to avoid the crowds because it tends to be fairly empty. The beach is rocky, but you can still find pockets of sand to lay out on. Whether you just want to hit the beach for a few hours or you want to stay the whole day, make your way to Windansea Beach for a great place in San Diego.

Mount Soledad

Address: 6905 La Jolla Scenic Drive South La Jolla, CA 92039

Mount Soledad is the best place in San Diego to get a view of the entire city and surrounding areas. From the top, you can see all the way from Coronado to La Jolla. The gorgeous outlook is a veteran’s memorial so stop by and take a look. Don’t forget to stop by Mount Soledad because then you can tell your friends that you actually saw all of San Diego.

    Ooo I’ll keep these in mind for if I ever go to San Diego (which hopefully I will one day!). That mural is really beautiful as well 🙂
