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

We did lots of walking and wandering these streets and enjoyed the diversity of the shopping experience. There is something for everyone, it seems, in every price range. We picked up a few souvenirs and enjoyed the close proximity of everything.

Loved spending the weekend in La Jolla with my two daughters. The highlights of our trip were as follows: 1) Tijon Perfumery (made our own perfume!) 2) Burger Lounge (onion rings) 3) Bobboi Gelato (chocolate sorbet) 4) Diane's Boutique (love her cute rope handle tote bag)

There are the well-known shops and boutiques (some are not very expensive at all) and plenty of places to eat. Fab!

Lots of shops and restaurants. A great little walk/hike to burn off any of the sinful things you have eaten.

A rather funky place. Our bus stopped on this street and we walked to the beach area. On the way we browsed at the shops, clothes shops, tourist shops, cafes, bakeries, toy shops, beauty shops. A place to walk down on a nice sunny day and we spent more time there when we returned from the beach.
