We walked through a few times when looking for dinner. Shopping doesn't do it for us, but there is lots of it if that is what you are into.

Nice shops but all are pretty expensive. So many spas and beauty places too, and of course real estate agents. Not for local shopping.

We came into Girard and Prospect Street a couple hrs before we knew we wanted to stop for dinner so we could walk through the shops and see the sunset on the cove. Many things are very very expensive but there are also many darling store with lots of things that are very affordable. We love Africa and Beyond, Fresh... More

We loved downtown LaJolla. Went to the Farmer's market at the other end of Girard and had a blast. Very walkable small town with all the amenities - including a small bookstore!

IF you haven't seen an outdoor shopping mall or a nice street with nice shopping come. IF you have seen stores on a clean street...no big deal.

While visiting La Jolla in September, we ran into a wonderful and fun street festival on Girard. What a great experience, friendly vendors and weather. And, of cousre Girard and Prospect are within minutes of walking distance to the gorgeous La Jolla Cove Beach!

Girard and Prospect is a great walk around area with some nice shops and great little restaurants. This is one of San Diego's premier neighborhoods and feels like you could be strolling through a beachside community in France.

This area has some wonderful little boutique shops, common shops you may see at a mall and some higher end shops. It is a little hilly in some areas, but I loved it. I had a Mango Frappe at The Frape House. They have so many flavors and choices. Next time I need to try the Red Velvet Frape!
