Wag! Walkers know La Jolla

La Jolla is a large region comprised of several associated neighborhoods, located 30 minutes north of San Diego's downtown business core. Your location in the region affects the walkability of the area, but there are many local businesses, shops, services, and restaurants. The areas in the southern section along the coast are the most walkable and densely populated with waterfront restaurants and interesting shops. 


Dog-friendly restaurants in the area are too numerous to mention, so check to see if your pup can join you for a bite out. Pet owners will find chain pet stores and the Muttropolis La Jolla et supply store as well as numerous veterinary hospitals in the region. 


The weather in San Diego is beautiful for walking with your dog with mild winters and hot summers. Extreme heat may mean walking earlier or later in the day during summer months. Spring fog and overcast conditions can occur at this coastal location, however, because La Jolla is situated on high ground, fog does not usually settle for long.
