Dr. Seuss fell in love with La Jolla on his first visit in 1928. Twenty years later, he began looking for a permanent California home—a place where the climate would allow him “to walk around outside in my pajamas.” In a one-day search, Ted purchased La Jolla’s Tower, a rundown observation structure atop Mount Soledad, which had become a lover’s-lane destination. He built his home around the Tower, making it his studio. It was from this vantage point that Dr. Seuss’s La Jolla Birdwomen series was born.
