La Jolla Cove

Located on the coast in the heart of downtown La Jolla, this beautiful and historic site is one of the most picturesque places to visit with kids. Take a walk along its sandy shores, watch seals, sea lions, and fish from the overlook, or explore tide pools. The cove is a great place for families who love to be outdoors. You can pack one of your little one’s Presley Couture’s girls swimsuits, swim trunks for your little guy, rent kayaks and stand-up paddle boards on-site, and have some fun family activities that are educational too.

Seaport Village is a waterfront shopping and dining center with more than 120 stores, restaurants, and entertainment options. Highlights include Hard Rock Café, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum, The Westin Hotel & Marina, and Old Town State Historic Park. A visitor’s pass includes free parking on weekdays for up to two hours.
