La Jolla is an affluent neighborhood in San Diego, California. It is a hilly seaside community, occupying 7 miles (11 km) of curving coastline along the Pacific Ocean within the northern city limits. La Jolla had the highest home prices in the nation in 2008 and 2009; the average price of a standardized four-bedroom home in La Jolla was reported as US $1.842 million in 2008 and US $2.125 million in 2009. This doesn't prevent Skinny Wimp Moving Co. to offer the most affordable moving services with the quality every customer deserves. The 2004 estimated population of the 92037 ZIP code was 42,808 while the La Jolla community planning area had an estimated population of 31,746 in 2010. La Jolla is surrounded on three sides by ocean bluffs and beaches and is located 12 miles (19 km) north of Downtown San Diego, and 40 miles (64 km) south of Orange County California. One of the many reason why Skinny Wimp movers like to move people in La Jolla is because of it climate, which is mild, with an average daily temperature of 70.5 °F (21.4 °C). La Jolla is home to a variety of businesses in the areas of lodging, dining, shopping, software, finance, real estate, bio-engineering, medical practice and scientific research. The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is located in La Jolla, as are the Salk Institute, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the headquarters of National University.
Local Native Americans, the Kumeyaay, called this location mat kulaaxuuy, lit. "land of holes" (mat = "land"). The topographic feature of the description "holes" refers to its uncertain but probable sea-level caves that are located on the north facing bluffs, all of which are visible from La Jolla Shores. It is suggested that because of this observation, the Spanish occupiers changed the name of this city to "La Jolla". An alternative suggestion for the origin of the name is that it is a corruption of the Spanish word "la joya", which means "the jewel". Despite being disputed by scholars, this origin of the name La Jolla has been widely cited in popular culture. That supposed origin gave rise to the nickname "Jewel City", which was once commonly used but now exists mainly in commercial references.
The most compelling geographical highlight of La Jolla is its ocean front, with alternating rugged and sandy coast line and wild seal congregations. When not on a move, our professional trained Skinny Wimp movers like to go out here to catch some waves and they recommend these popular sandy beaches, dotting the coastline from the south to the north, are Windansea Beach, Wipeout Beach, Shell Beach and La Jolla Shores. La Jolla is the location of Torrey Pines Golf Course, site each January or February of a PGA Tour event formerly known as the Buick Invitational and now (since 2010) called the Farmers Insurance Open. In 2008, Torrey Pines also hosted the 2008 U.S. Open. Nearby are the de facto nude beach, Black's Beach, and the Torrey Pines Gliderport.
Downtown La Jolla is noted for jewelry stores, boutiques, upmarket restaurants and hotels. Prospect Street and Girard Avenue are also shopping and dining districts. The Museum of Contemporary Art, founded in 1941, is located just above the waterfront in what was originally the 1915 residence of philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps. The museum has a permanent collection with more than 3,500 post-1950 American and European works, including paintings, works on paper, sculptures, photographic art, design objects and video works. The museum was renamed Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in 1990 to recognize its regional significance.
