“pleasant walking area”
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”
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”
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.

“Quaint Village”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Beautiful location, walking distance to the the ocean. Has the charm of a quaint village. I only wish that there were more 'mom & pop' stores rather than Victoria's Secret, Bannana Republic, ect,. Parts of La jolla feel like you are walking through a mall
