“Hard to park, expensive shops and good restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Not neary enough street parking, have to use parking lots and garages. Restricted parking every other space, changes from 2 hours to 1 hour to 15 minutes to 15 seconds in every block-- I kid you not. Shops are too expensive but there are great (pricey) restaurants most with ocean views.

“Not too unique!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Heart of La Jolla for shopping. Upscale corporate stores you could find anywhere. Many overpriced eateries. A few scattered gems but nothing memorable. Relaxed atmosphere for people watching. Had lunch 2 blocks away at Codys worth the walk. Organic cupcake place serves flavors I haven't seen before in cupcakes but bring your credit card.

“Great scenery and shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Wide variety of shops. From chains to small mom and pop shops. You can find your souvenir to items that just look cute to have.
