Calumet Park

This tiny cliffside park in the middle of a residential area may not have beach access, but there are benches, picnic tables, and expansive ocean views.
Calumet Avenue near Midway Street

Mimi & Red

The local boutique offers a mix of casual, beach-chic fashion with a polished edge. Think tailored jackets alongside flowy dresses, as well as an affordable selection of jewelry and giftables.
5680 La Jolla Boulevard

Beaumont’s

Beaumont’s

A restaurant with live music most nights of the week within walking distance of an ocean view and without crazy waits? It’s possible at Beaumont’s, a low-key neighborhood spot with lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, and a lengthy cocktail list. We love the organic Moscow mule.
5665 La Jolla Boulevard

Farm to Fork Juice

Beyond cleanse programs, the organic pressed juicery recently introduced more food options, like cacao chia pudding and roasted veggie salads with tahini dressing.
5646 La Jolla Boulevard

The Rush Indoor Cycling Studio

SoulCycle hasn’t yet landed in San Diego, but this boutique spin studio will work your muscles just as hard, with hand weights for a full-body routine and motivating music to match.
5628 La Jolla Boulevard

Studio Barre

Their “barre-tenders” will hone your arms, legs, and core with moves that feel like a blend of boot camp and barre. Classes incorporate balls, mats, resistance bands, weights, and—of course—the barre.
5705 La Jolla Boulevard

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters  

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters  

Though it’s since opened more locations, the micro-roaster’s flagship is still a favorite. You’ll find regulars seated by the huge roll-up windows with a latte or a blend, like the honey-and-cinnamon Gold Digger.
5627 La Jolla Boulevard

Bird Rock Surf Shop

Bird Rock Surf Shop

The shop has surfboards and gear, and takes repair jobs, too. Stop by Seaside Smoothie & Juice Bar next door for a post-surf refresher.
5509 La Jolla Boulevard

Wheat & Water

The two ingredients in its moniker should be a clue. This craft pizzeria is set to debut later this month, with wood-fired pizzas, more than 20 beers on tap, cold brew, and kombucha.
5737 La Jolla Boulevard

Bahia Don Bravo

The casual, cash-only spot is big on flavor and fast service. They also offer happy hour every day from 3 to 6 p.m., with deals on fish tacos, carne asada fries, and more.
5504 La Jolla Boulevard
