Crashing Waves & Glimmering Sunsets

No matter what time of year you read this, families will be picnicking on local cheeses and artisanal breads in Scripps Park, setting up the perfect panoramic shot of San Diego atop Mt. Soledad, and a scraggly, blonde-haired kid will tame a tasty wave at Windansea Beach. These are the many beaches and beach towns of San Diego, California and they are open for business 365 days out of the year. Join us in this strikingly beautiful, immensely livable city whose consistent year-round temperature highs between 65-70 degrees make it a favorite destination for visitors year ‘round. You’ll be treated to some of the most photogenic vistas you’ve ever seen.

About The Tour

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! Your trolley will drop you off 0.6 miles from La Jolla Cove.

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.

Short on time for a day trip to La Jolla? 
Just tell your driver and stay on the trolley to continue your tour returning back to Old Town!
