Full description
Experience La Jolla, San Diego, on this self-guided walking tour via an app that functions as a guide, narrator, and map. Developed by local guides, creative writers, and professional voice artists, the tour explores the best spots and history of La Jolla.

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app that will function as your personal guide, audio tour, and map all in one.

Begin your tour by the parking area for the Coast Walk, then continue to the coast itself, where you’ll get your first look at the breathtaking La Jolla Cove. Continue by following the walkway along the waterfront. Learn how La Jolla got its name, spot some of the neighborhood’s most iconic birds, and more. See gorgeous architecture and natural beauty collide. Pass where La Jolla’s first tourist cabins once stood, then take in one-of-a-kind views while hearing about the Kumeyaay tribe who once lived here. Be sure to keep your eye out for seals and sea lions. If you’re lucky, you might spot an orca whale. Next, go to Seal Rock. If you haven’t managed to spot a seal yet, this is the place where your luck will change. Snap some photos to remember these unique creatures. After, see Children’s Pool Beach, where kids and seals swim side by side. Afterward, hear about the town’s unlikely mascot, Rags the Donkey, and legends about a mysterious stranger known as “The Judge.” Then, stop at Cuvier Park, one of the most popular wedding spots in the entire country. Conclude your tour by visiting the famous tide pools that are bursting with aquatic life. Throughout the tour, enjoy animated videos that let you visualize what you cannot see.
