My wife loves the Revo. I can take it or leave it. It is colourful, noisy, full of different aromas (in some cases aroma is a very, very generous word!), full of shopkeepers trying to hook you into their shops and others trying to get you into their bars. It has a lot of restaurants and bars, nightclubs and cafes.... More

The music scene in Tijuana is excellent. The food was great and musicians truly enjoy their craft and it shows

At night Avenida Revolucion is great for people watching. It also has numerous restaurants and drinking establishments. During the day it is good for shopping. This was the first paved road in North America, when prohibition prompted many Americans to visit Tijuana to for legal drinking.

I guessed I'm not the haggling type. I don't like people pressuring me when I shop. This is a pathetic little market with shops that sell the same things and desperate shopkeepers trying to flatter you into buying over priced junk that you don't want or need. I guess just like every other third world country tourist market. I felt... More

We only went down for a couple of hours but that was enough. The people were all friendly enough and we didn't have a bad experience but we couldn't help but feel stressed for our safety. Maybe that's just because it was our first time and can barely speak a word of Spanish. The shop owners can spot a tourist... More

It's pretty and fill of shops with big pressure sales people. They negotiate pretty hard so if u want something offer 75% less than they start with and do not go past 40-50% of staying price

I just returned to this Avenida after about 15 years and it's sadder than I remember. Just a lot of desperate/pushy people trying to sell made-in-China "Mexican" things and 2 for 1 margaritas. Please don't think this is the real Mexico. It's such an amazing country. This street is nothing like it.

Enjoyed the shopping, sights, places for lunch etc. This is the main tourist drag in town. Kids had a great time.

...then this is a great place to visit. Typical Tijuana. Food is hit or miss, but is always beyond reasonably priced. Vendors are everywhere selling trinkets. They're a bit pushy, but either stop to buy, or just keep walking. I'm not a barfly myself, but I have to say that the bars are probably one of the best things about... More

I liked the statues along the avenue and the many shops, I didn't care for the prices too much as they seem to raise them and want dollars instead of pesos being near the border and a sort of "tourist trap."
