There’s something for everyone

Coronado BeachSan Diego is known for 70 miles of beautiful beaches and mild temperatures. What better way for you to experience the magic than on Old Town Trolley’s La Jolla and San Diego Beaches Tour. Board our colorful Beach Cruiser and be transported to the top of Mt. Soledad, 822 feet above sea level. There, you will be treated to a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. You will disembark the Trolley for about 20 minutes for a spectacular photo opportunity! Then, you will re-board the Trolley and descend into La Jolla, “The Jewel” of San Diego, past the Cove and the famous Children’s Pool and into the heart of the Village where you will step off and spend the afternoon on your own experiencing Paradise by the sea!

Later, the Trolley will pick you up to continue your journey along the coast and through the beach towns of Pacific Beach and Mission Beach. You will pass the surfers at Windansea Beach, the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster at Belmont Park, and the SkyTower at Sea World as you return to Old Town and your starting point. Throughout the tour, you’ll see rocky cliffs and sandy beaches, reefs and tide pools, seals and surfers and lots of happy people enjoying the best that Southern California has to offer.
