This is the place to see in Tijuana. Lots of specialty shops and bars line this street for blocks. Just head for the Tijuana arch.

We spent about two hours here, shopping and bartering-which is apparently the name of the game, the store owners were fun to visit with and full of interesting information regarding their wares and the history of their country. It was a great experience. I loved the children singing and selling their bracelets-Warning-not good prices if you cant barter or say... More

Although this avenue was busy and enjoyable, I could not find many nice restaurants along this avenue except Caesars, the restaurant which produced Caesar salad originally. Instead, there were many pharmacy shops along the street. I could walk along this avenue safely even at night.

My wife and I stayed in Old Town along with another couple while in Southern CA. On the 2nd day of our stay we decided to visit Tijuana. We drove down 5 south to one of the public parking lots next to the border (you can also take the trolley to San Ysidro). Instead of walking across the border, we... More

If you go to TJ, this is pretty much the destination. If you can shop with a couple caveats - this is all knock-off, everything is negotiable, and you can absolutely walk away - then this place is a blast. Fantastic food everywhere, and vendors that will sell you anything for just about any price. It's great for medications, alcohol,... More

This street represents the tourist trap portion of tijuana. Its mainly pharmacies (its to take advantage of usa drug pricing), restaurants, trinket shops. If you make the crossing by foot from the san ysidro entry just cross over the bridge and start looking for the silver arch and walk towards it.

We had a great time here. Not only felt really safe walking and buying items but it was fun strolling around looking at the various quality of goods from cheap beads to fine jewelry and high end knock off purses only found if you are invited into the back room after developing a comfort level. Excellent buys but don't accept... More

Revolucion is still a fun place to shop for things to bring home and have some Mexican food. It has changed over the n early 50 years since I first visited. It is safe to walk and there is problems if you do not wander away from the tourist areas. Visit and enjoy.

Along Revolucion are many tourist shops and eateries. This is one of the busiest tourist areas and is fun just to walk along and people watch. Fun to chat with the vendors. There are many different eateries along the boulevard from just tacos off a cart to fine dinning in a restaurant.
