This is so fun to walk around and browse the shops no matter what time of the day it is. Parking can be a pain on weekends but pay-and-parks aren't too expensive.

We love our daily walks down Girard Avenue and Prospect Street when we are visiting La Jolla. There are many shops that have been here for ages, but also some new trendy ones. Lots of active wear shops to choose from. One of our favorites...More

This is a nice place to spend a few hours in window shopping and buying unique things, but there are also some chain stores here. Nice architecture, lots of beautiful older hotel buildings.

Stayed 2 days in the heart of La Jolla. Great places to eat. Loved the Underwater Park with all the seals. Kayaking was the best!

Very nice shops and restaurants. It's best to walk from your hotel as parking is limited and the area can be quite busy with tourists.

For a small town, there are so many dining and shopping opportunities. Spend the day. Several art galleries to visit too. I have cocktails at sunset in one of the amazing bars

I loved that the shops were walking distance from my hotel (La Valencia). The sidewalks are clean and no busy. During the evening, the sidewalks are empty and you can easily take a stroll without dodging people. I loved the diversity of shops. I found...More
