During the day it's a bunch of tourists and tacky junk stores. At night it is a place of decadence where you can drink and find you a woman or other things.

A number of small shops and restaurants. Much of these items are actually made in China. Nothing special even though the local government keeps spend money on redevelopment. It's a border street, so it classically bumpy and junky. But if in the area it's an ok visit. Otherwise save your time and money.

If you do not know where the Avenue is, just ask (preferably) the police how to get to the arch of center of the city, that is where it is. Walking from the from the boarder cross the river, it will be about 20 minutes. The Avenue is the heart of the City with many shops, restaurants, markets and lots... More

I thoroughly enjoy experiencing different people and different cultures. Buildings are old, yes. Adds to the character. Streets are clean. I don´t enjoy being amongst a bunch of tourists and this area did not disappoint.

Never been before and lots of people tried to dissuade us from crossing the border and glad we didn't listen to them. Crossing back and forth was painless in the middle of a weekday and best of all Uber works in Tijuana so transportation in Mexico was easy. The Avenida was fun and adventurous and was a well enjoyed activity.... More

I had not been to Tijuana for a number of years. Let's be honest. I visited TJ for the same reason as many Americans. There are those of us who want to claim foreign travel, but cannot afford the week long fancy cruises, airline tickets, hotel stays or other costs of foreign travel. TJ has little to do with the...

We went on a Monday. There was no line to get back over to the United States, but also at least half the shops on Revolucion were closed. There was music and several restaurants, some hotels, and places to buy souvenirs. The tacos we got on Avenida Revolucion were mediocre. Our taxi driver did tell us that just about anywhere... More
