San Diego California is one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world; about this there is no doubt. I first came here in the early 1980s serving in the US Navy. I immediately fell in love with San Diego, but for various reasons, I was not able to fully settle here until the year 2000 when my kids started school.
Shortly after this time, I purchased an art gallery in La Jolla; Hallmark Galleries of La Jolla. La Jolla is an absolute jewel of a place that must not be missed on any journey here; it, also is a work of art (see some of the photos I have attached to this post). The first time I saw it and felt its charm, I was hooked and knew this would be the place where I would grow from.
Many of the very best restaurants and lodging can be found here and scenery second to none! Don’t miss it, and as long as you are here, definitely come by the gallery and say hello. We want to meet you personally. We carry some of the most incredible artists who are handpicked for the value of their art and not specifically for commercial value as is done by so many art galleries these days.
We are a family run gallery but also have an amazingly well trained and educated staff. Usually, either Michael Hajdaj (hi- dye), the gallery director is working to assist you, or Christine Molina, our top art consultant. We treat our customers and staff like family and have a business model of working with our collectors for many years into the future. We are also multilingual in Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Taiwanese and English, so don’t be too shy if English is not your first language
Let us know if you are coming in advance and we’ll give you a few ideas on how to make the most of your trip;-)
In my next article on this post, I will address some of my favorite restaurants in La Jolla that you can try during your stay with us.
Rob Mitchell is the gallery owner, art collector and is a full time Investment Advisor.
