    I visited here during a one week stay in San Diego. The location isn’t exactly right next to the tram station, however, is within walking distance for those who are relatively fit and can stand the heat. There are a large variety of retailers here including major brands such as Nike, Adidas, Footlocker, Asics, Nautica and others. It’s a great location for having so many outlet stores in one spot and the prices are generally great! There were some food and drink options available though some of these had shut for the day (I did visit on the 2nd January though) or didn’t open at all. Overall a good experience and next time I’m in San Diego I’d happily visit again to snap up some bargains!

    Great outdoor market which takes place rain or shine. I was there on a rare rainy Sunday & the market was prepared. Vendors had tent covers & the place was packed! Locals kept apologizing for the weather - which as a tourist made me laugh. If you are visiting from out of town there is a decent amount of fresh fruit & veggies. So if you have just arrived, and are staying a few days - stock up here instead of going to local supermarket. They also have unique one of-a-kind crafts/jewelry/candles. What I also liked was that all of the artists who made products were there (at least what I bought).

    The waterfront is a beautiful place to walk, eat and shop. A great place to spend an afternoon and.have lunch at one of those restaurants with those great views. There is a lot to see and do at various price points. Great view of the Coronado Bridge.

    It's a nice outdoor mall, but nothing special. My only complaint would be that there are too few restaurants, not much to choose from. If you don't have a car you get there by trolley though it's still like a 10 to 15 minute walk from the station to the mall itself.

    After we found this place, we were there almost every day either for breakfast coffee and pastry or lunch for a salad, sandwich or burger. The Liberty Public Market is made up of individual outlets with different food offerings. We found each of these outlets is special. They are not your typical franchised brand. Authentic and original menus. The owner of the pastry spot was from Paris, France. We loved the Rad Burgers, with truffle mayo and bacon, and the Cluck Flusters chicken, spicy hot tenders. There were so many different places to get something each day we visited. A large ample, free parking lot made it an easy choice. It was not crowded on the days and times we went, but we have been told by other guests that it can get crazy on the weekends and evenings. We went when it opened in the morning for coffee and pastries, other outlets were not open until noon for lunch or dinner offerings.

    This is such a perfect spot for those in a group or family when no one can decide what they want or everyone wants something different. There are also retail vendors of clothings, art, and crafty items as well so browse around.

    Nice outlets, didn't find as much deals as I was expecting but good nonetheless.
    My main issue is getting there, if you are coming from Tijuana via the main gate then it's fine, but if you arrive from Cross Border Express in the Tijuana airport there is no simple way to get there. Same for San Diego, only way I found other than ride sharing was via the Trolley (though it's kind of a long walk from the trolley to the outlets). Also to get back to San Diego I had a hard time getting an Uber, the drivers cancelled on me since they were much closer to San Diego than San Ysidro. One even accused me of "negatively affecting his work", as if I had the option to choose a driver or how distant he is! I'm not aware if the mall has options to get to and from San Diego but if they don't maybe they should.

    The selection of Gorman creations ranges from small tiles to sculptures to enormous canvases or ptints. Something for every budget for the fan of this Navajo artist. One of four galleries in the country showing his work.

    This place not only has such a varied selection of wares (Asian, contemporary, collectible, Victorian, eclectic) but the prices are really reasonable - and several items are marked down. Lots of furniture, figurines, dinnerware, cutlery, glassware, jewelry, etc. You could spend over an hour just looking around. Many unique items and all high quality. We ended up buying some glassware and jewelry and nice to this non-profit donates to dozens of animal welfare causes.

    This isn't like a traditional sculpture garden that's a contiguous area with a collection of sculpture. The sculpture is spread around the hospital campus. The pieces farthest from the entrance are next to the building at 9850 Genesee Avenue. Most of the sculpture is around the main hospital building at 9888 Genesee. There's more next to parking garage D, which is a good central place to park to see the sculpture. Parking there is free for half an hour; up to three hours costs $4.

    This is a great place to see some art if art museums are closed. To give you an idea of what's there, I'll post a number of photos.

    I guess Mr Simic lost his butt several years ago in Carmel Ca. He had beautiful pieces of Art, hell I spent over 100k with the gallery. How unfortunate. It’s gone! Kinda makes me mad, but it is what it is. My X has the good pieces and I have several that I will be selling. All European Artist. I just don’t really want memories of my X, so the Art has to go. I did enjoy the Gallery with Judith & Russel. It probably was a sale with them, but it actually meant something to the both of us.

    This is a great little shop to check out art. The staff was very friendly and passionate about the art on display. Cool place to visit.

    We are visiting from Upstate NY and were blown away by the vast selection of goods. I wish we had a way to get the beautiful produce home! We were able to buy gifts for friends: homemade soap, spices and tea. We did enjoy some fresh treats ourselves. All of the merchants were very friendly and eager to share information about their respective talents. It was a wonderful experience: six blocks of
    items. Plus it gave us a great break from sightseeing.

    This is a great way to spend an hour or more looking at amazing art. The parking in this area varies with different time limits so you should plan your visit to ensure your car doesn't get ticketed.
