Traffic Alert: President Obama will visit San Diego as part of his swing through Southern California. In fact, he’ll be having lunch in La Jolla on September 26. That’s bound to cause a few delays – maybe even a road closure or two. If you’ll be in town that day, you might want to avoid Mt. Soledad.
This peak provides a great panorama, but on that day, the cars carrying those guys who wear dark glasses and talk into their lapels might clog up the access.
The event – no, I wasn’t invited either – is at the home of Elizabeth and Mason Phelps in the Muirlands area of La Jolla. The President will be the guest of honor at a noon lunch limited to 160.
What else is happening that week? September 28 is the start of Season 26 of MTV’s The Real World. If you’ve been paying attention, you know that Season 26 was filmed in San Diego, and the cast lived in a house in the Bird Rock area of La Jolla.
I bet that all those folks who belly-ached about having the show taped in their family neighborhood will be glued to their TVs.

Category: About La Jolla
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.
