Shopping alert!

Keep your credit card at home if you don't want to buy anything. There is quite a number of shops mostly for women though and places were you can drink a coffee or have a snack.

High end shopping with restaurants and bars. Interesting place to walk around and visit but very pricey for the average visitor.

Hilly area so be prepared to walk a bit, some sidewalk unevenness. Most of the restaurants offered both inside and outside patio dining. La Jolla is very clean.

Fun place to walk around and browse the shops or catch a bite, but nothing special. Remember, it's LaJolla so there several high-end shops. Parking is challenging. Worth a stroll.

I didn't buy a thing, but I enjoyed popping in and out of several stores. What I liked is that there are shops for the "average" shopper as well as more expensive upscale stores. Clothing, housewares, gifts, food, you name it, you'll find it. And if you get tired of stores (or your husband does), there are bars and the... More

Fun place to take a stroll while in La Jolla. They have little shops, places to eat, art galleries, and the area is just fun to see.

Yes, the shops have it all here in LaJolla. Local pop up stores, apparel chains, jewelry, art, shoes, varied clothing, even a bakery/bistro food shop. Lots of restaurants and just some good window shops. A nice to stroll around with family or friends kind of few hours.

Most of the stores are the big chain stores and art galleries mixed in with restaurants. I can have that experience back home so I didn't spend a lot of time here.

It's all here, everything you could =d ask for and lovely weather to do it in. When your done or taking a break grab a snack, lunch or happy hour...all the restaurants are great on that street, then take a drive to the ocean and check out the sea lions. Drop the teenagers off at the beach, then go shopping.... More
