Am there almost daily, as it is part of my neighborhood. Lots of places to eat, buy, window shop, and people watch.Very dog friendly.

“Stellar Shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

What I love about these streets are the myriad of shops and cafes. I have literally spent the entire day on these streets shopping and eating my way around. Many wonderful galleries to while away an hour or two.

“pleasant walking area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Generally the stores are similar to one's in malls. The book store (Warwick's) is outstanding with wonderful help. The drug store (Burn's) is why the private pharmacies are so appealing. it has everything. There are wonderful ice cream and gelato shops as well as restaurants. A nice feature is that there are many benches on the streets. A great way to spend time

“Fun and unique shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

D.G. Wills Books is an awesome used book store like nothing I've seen before. Not only did I find a great holiday gift for my friend (Robert Frost in Japanese with translation) but I walked out with 8 other books.

“nice but busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

La jolla is a wonderful place to poke around.The parking was minimal and the area was really crowded.Upscale shops are fun to browse but a little pricey for your average person.
