Tour Private La Jolla Gardens

April 23, 2009 | By | Reply More

Have you ever wished you could tour private La Jolla gardens? If you hurry, you can still get tickets to the Secret Garden Tour of Old La Jolla taking place on May 9. This very popular annual event, sponsored by the La Jolla Historical Society, provides locals and visitors a chance to tour the spring gardens of seven beautiful homes in our community.

If you’ve spent any time in La Jolla, you know that many of the truly grand houses with the most remarkable landscaping are hidden behinds gates and walls – so this self-guided tour presents a unique opportunity.

The location of the gardens isn’t disclosed until the day of the tour – that’s the “secret” part – but they are always stunning.

In addition to manicured trees, flowers, and shrubs, each home will offer live music, colorful table settings, and artists at work capturing the scene on canvas.

To buy tickets, go to the website of the La Jolla Historical Society or call 858-459-5335. Regular tickets are $50 (or $40 for members of the Historical Society). Tickets for the Platinum Tour, which includes shuttle transportation to the gardens, one extra oceanfront garden, and brunch in a historical garden, cost $150 (or $140 for members).

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
