So you’re going to stay in downtown San Diego, but want to visit La Jolla? Until now, I’d have said “take the #30 bus,” but recently Tour Guide Tim began offering another option and it’s good news for car-less visitors to La Jolla.
His guided coach tours leave from the Santa Fe train station on Kettner Boulevard and include Mt. Soledad, the village of La Jolla, La Jolla Shores, and the Torrey Pines Golf Course.
Passengers have time to shop, eat lunch, and walk along the water in the village, or they can spend their time at La Jolla Shores Beach. Here, kayaking, surf lessons, or just hanging out in the sand are a few of the options. Before deciding where to spend your time, check out my earlier post “La Jolla Shores vs. the Village.”
Tour Guide Tim – Timothy Schenck – has a talent for absorbing information. After moving to San Diego from Delaware, he took classes and did so much reading about his new hometown that his friends began calling him “Ask Jeeves of La Jolla.”
At the top of Mt. Soledad, Tim informs passengers that they’re standing on the Rose Canyon Fault Line and explains how earthquakes have shaped Southern California. This knowledge came from a geology class he took at the Museum of Natural History in Balboa Park.
Tim’s tours operate daily except Sunday and leave downtown at noon. For more information, check out the TourGuideTim website or call 1-231-TimTour.
