La Jolla is the true pearl of San Diego and the best place to own an income property as far as a return on investment. With the most gorgeous mansions you would dream to call home on the ever famous Mt. Soledad, La Jolla is by far one of the most costly areas to live in San Diego. The low crime rate attracts those that can afford it, but it does seem to be lacking a nightlife luster as most will travel downtown or to North County to go out. The views of the beach make it all worth it, however, it just isn’t awesome that there are only two ways in and two ways out; this makes traffic a nightmare for locals enjoying the beach and residents atop the gorgeous hills.
La Jolla contains a landmass of 17.1 sq. miles. It borders northern Pacific Beach and does not have a street as a dividing boundary. The best description would be: if you draw a parallel line from the top of Kate Sessions Park to Van Nuys Street in Bird Rock you will have the southern limit or boundary of the 92037 zip code. The western boundary is the Pacific Ocean, including Blacks Beach, Bird Rock, La Jolla Shores, La Jolla Caves, Torrey Pines, and Swamis Beach. The eastern boundary line is the 5 Highway. The winding path of Genesee Ave creates the 92037 zip code’s northern border. The estimated zip code population in 2018 was 39,213 and contains the neighborhoods Bird Rock, La Jolla Mesa, Jolla Alta, La Jolla Hermosa, Lower Hermosa, Muirlands, Muirlands West, Soledad Mountain, Soledad South, Village of La Jolla, Country Club, Hidden Valley, La Jolla Heights, La Jolla Village, La Jolla Heights, La Jolla Farms and Torrey Pines. Recent statistics show that 44% of the population in La Jolla is comprised of renters.
