There is no parking restrictions on Girard Avenue, Prospect Street and nearby streets after 6pm. Between the hours of 8am and 6pm parking times vary from 15 minutes all the way to 3 hours. We...

This popular La Jolla area is a very walkable. Every thing from art galleries, high end men's and women's fashion, souvenirs, burger joints, French cuisine, you name it you will probably find it. I like to grab a cup of coffee and sit on the patio with my dogs and people watch, that's fun too. Also a great car city... More

La Jolla is one of the most charming communities of San Diego. It has enough restaurants and shops to keep the visitor busy for weeks, most centered on our near Prospect St. and Girard Avenue. If you love to shop and dine, or if you just want a break from sun and surf, do visit the many wonderful stores and... More

We stopped and walked around after kayaking the sea caves. Many stores are more boutique style and pricier. We had fun looking at different stores along both streets.

Fun upscale,touristy shopping. Be sure to stop in the book store more than books unique gifts and treasures though a bit spendy.

There are a lot of shops, galleries and restaurants in this general area. We looked for this cross street as it was close to where we were going after breakfast at Richard Walkers' Pancake House.

Great shops and cafes! Checkout the pretty Mary of the Seas Catholic Church as well! Von's supermarket along that path as well!

We shopped on Girard & Prospect Streets in La Jolla during a recent vacation to San Diego. We easily spent 3 hours strolling in and out of the shops. Some are high-end well-known stores; some are more affordable local boutiques (more of the high-end ones, but hey, it is La Jolla!). Restaurants dot both streets, but we didn't eat. The... More

la Jolla is a very easy place to walk. For shopping, it doesn't get much better than Prospect Street and Girard Avenue. Prospect parallels the coastline, so at every corner there's a view of the ocean.
