At one time this must have been worth seeing, but now it is very sad. As we walked across the border the line to leave Mexico looked three hours long. We walked a deserted street (at noon on a holiday Monday, but maybe it is always that way). We made a pretty quick pace passing shops as we didn't feel... More

Tijuana Centro is pretty interesting. I went for the day with a friend. We parked in a lot on the USA side near jack in the box. We walked across the border, couldn't have been easier. They didn't even check our passports and no line. Once across, go to the path on the left that's lined with little vendors. Take... More

Fun to browse the shops. The shop owners are energetic in their encouragement of you visiting their shop but quite amusing with it. Didn't feel harassed which was good.

it needs somebody with vision and a plan to recreate it into something people from san diego and the world would actually want to visit and spend money on.

This street is full of shops targeting tourists. It's a great place to go to find souvenirs to take home, but expect to be targeted and be prepared to haggle. When you know what to expect, its fun to walk the gauntlet, and listen to the persuasive patter designed to entice you into their shops - "come in and buy... More

If you decide to make the trip to Tijuana, it's advised that you pass through Avda Revolucion very quickly! The street is lined with overpriced tchotchke stores and restaurants, pharmacies and dentists. I went during Dia de los Muertos which was a little more cultural, but otherwise I would suggest finding something else to do while in Tijuana.

Once there he keep trying to scare me telling me that, my car was gonna be towed for having the windows tinted. That... More

Mexico should sell Mexico (Folklore, arts, foods, etc.) not chip beers and second rate medicines. Avenida Revolución may be a great attraction for tourist of all the world if it becomes the real sample of Mexico and its culture.

Most of the stores are shuttered, the street went into a depression after 911 when it became difficult to cross the border back into the US. It was a prosperous and rambunctious street in the '90's as I remember but no more. Can be dangerous after dark.
