If you have never been to Avenida Revolucion, you probably need to see it once, just to say you've been there. All of the vendors have the same stuff at nearly the same price but if you have some time to kill, it can be an interesting hour or so.

Beware of pharmacy tactics. I was on Revolution Street in Tijuana where there are dozens of pharmacies. To shop for my prescribed medication for antibiotics and pain medication for dental work I had that day. At one pharmacy I handed my prescription and they quoted me a certain price. After I agreed to purchase, after they related they made an... More

Pemex cheaper than US gasoline. The street is passable and paved. Needs more clear signs. It's safe here once you get around the macho man egos of the male residents

The street is full of stores selling various tourist times, coffee shops, restaurants nite clubs bars, etc. Yes the locals will solicit you to come into their business. they depend on tourist and need business. I guess some might be offended to ask to try this or check out that, they mean no harm and if they don't pitch the... More

Was on business and got a tour from one of locals. Use caution in this area, some locals will not visit this area at night due to the presents of local drug cartels so if your an out of towner be careful. During the day it's full of colorful people and very tourist freindly. Lots of police present. Look for... More

The best part of strolling down Avenida Revolucion is that you never know what's going to happen. Like on all of my trips to Tijuana, I make it a priority to spend some time walking up an down the stret here. Even if I have no intentions on buying souvenirs or anything, I just really like strolling and the people... More

Never seen this street in the light of day, so can't comment on that. At night there are several bars and clubs. Usually populated by young US kids under 21 or older creeps who just want to go boozin' and whorin'. If either of these describe you, this place should suit your needs. Not a place for families but for... More

My friends really wanted to take a trip south of the border while we were in San Diego. This place is a dump. There's no other way to put it. Avenida Revolucion is probably the safest place I was in the city, outside of the gate that brings you back to America, but I still felt unsafe. Some of the... More
