that's a beautiful city, though it looks almost the same as some LA neighborhoods?

I am not entirely done with La Jolla. Still haven't posted pics from UCSD and the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course which hosted the 2008 U.S Open that was won by Tiger Woods. Tiger considers that win the most important of his career and Torrey Pines his favorite course to play in. And speaking of golf, Phil Mickelson is from San Diego

Two other beach communities I am planning to visit next are Oceanside and Carlsbad. Oceanside is famous for its wooden pier, the longest in California. Carlsbad is basically a twin version of La Jolla and is famous for its Legoland theme park, the only one available in the US. There are only 4 available such parks in the world.

I am uploading the rest of my La Jolla photos. You will get to see photos from the UCSD campus and Torrey Pines Golf Course.
UCSD is San Diego's main university. Its campus is remarkably huge, situated inside a forested area on top of the hills. It is in fact so large that it takes you at least an hour or two to drive around by car.

Torrey Pines Golf Course



Torrey Pines Golf Course is a municipal public golf course owned by the city of San Diego, California. It sits on the coastal cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the community of La Jolla south of Torrey Pines State Reserve. It has two famous golf courses, the North Course and the South Course. The South Course was designed by William F. Bell and redesigned by Rees Jones in 2001. It is now a par 72 course at 7,643 yards (6,989 m) in length from the back tees. The logo of Torrey Pines Golf Course features a salt pruned Torrey Pine.

I spent the day in lovely Oceanside. Another one of San Diego's many gems
Oceanside is a key transit point in North County and is famous for its long wooden pier which I had mentioned in one of my earlier posts.
The town is close to both Carlsbad and Encinitas, two other incredibly charming and beautiful beach communities.
I am prepping the photos as we speak and will make them available as soon as they're ready.

San Diego is named "Destination of the Week" by UK's The Independent Newspaper

Quote:
Destination of the week: San Diego

Third time lucky? That's what British Airways hopes for its resurrected link between Heathrow and California's southernmost city. The daily service begins on 1 June. BA's two previous attempts to serve San Diego proved uneconomic. But the new service will be staffed by the airline's "new fleet" of cabin crew, which will help to keep the costs down.



San Diego has many advantages over Los Angeles, 120 miles north along the Pacific coast. Purely practically, it is a far easier gateway than LAX; San Diego's airport, Lindbergh Field, is about 10 minutes' drive from downtown. The city centre is compact, and scattered around are some fascinating attractions: magnificent Balboa Park, a feast of architecture and parkland; Coronado Island, location for the hotel featured in Some Like It Hot; and North America's best zoo. The new BA link also provides the fast track to Mexico's Baja Peninsula, just south of the border. The service, on which BA has a monopoly, is selling well – judging from the fares BA is able to command. A return flight, departing a month from today and staying for a week, is currently on sale for £905. The comparable fare to Los Angeles is £70 lower.

Nice photos of a beautiful city! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to fly out to San Diego every other week last summer for work. It was nice to escape the heat & humidity of the eastern US and spend half of the summer enjoying the wonderfully comfortable climate and natural beauty of San Diego.

A few more photos of downtown include the Court House (1st photo: it's actually illegal to take photos of government buildings but I did it anyway)

This is the newly built Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge. It cost $26.8 million to build. The bridge functions as a pedestrian overpass connecting Petco Park with Hotel Hilton and the Convention Center. Trolley tracks and Pacific Highway cut simultaneously through under the bridge. A glass rise elevator is located on the side of the bridge as an alternative for the handicapped. I have provided views of the surroundings just to get an idea.

You left San Diego for Miami? Ouch
There's gotta be a good reason that made you make such a move.
