It is a nice area to have a walk, it is a mixture of high end and moderate shops. There are a lot of good restaurants in La Jolla. It is a walking distance from La Jolla cove and children's pool.

Colorful and fun to wander along this area. As quiet as it was on Thanksgiving Day, but still interesting to see what the area has to offer, the next day it was hopping and lively with many boutiques and restaurants.

This is the major street that runs through downtown La Jolla. Food, fashion and a very nice Von's market with pharmacy are all here. Easily walkable and something for everyone.

This part of La Jolla is literally clinging to the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is a great place to browse, shop and have a great meal or snack. Consider one of the restaurants that are built into the cliff line with fantastic views...More

La Jolla has a nice little downtown shopping area. Parking is not always easy, but if you can find a spot, you’ll enjoy the time. There are many souvenir shops, restaurants, and more upscale shops. Great place to spend an afternoon.

Very nice boutique shopping near the ocean plus terrific restaurants (particularly along Prospect). Visit and go to Scripps Park and the Cove, fabulous outing.

If you love window shopping, people watching and great food - visit these 2 streets while in La Jolla and you will not be disappointed! Thrown in are a few historic buildings for some culture! Great fun!

We came for breakfast and were so pleasantly surprised at the selection and the prices. The breakfast sandwiches were huge and delicious and only $5.50. The fruit salad bowl was enough for 2 people. The salads and desserts looked amazing. We are definitely going back.

Here you are the corner of the busiest street in the village of La Jolla, on both streets you will find plenty of shopping and dining options.
