San Diego

westfield horton plaza san diego

San Diego is well suited to shoppers of all tastes and budgets, from the fashionable boutiques of La Jolla to the thriving antique district in Ocean Beach. The Gaslamp Quarter serves up some of the best shopping in the downtown district -- along with a serving of Victorian charm. If you're seeking something more modern, the San Diego area also has a number of large shopping malls.

Seeking unique collectibles or that perfect vintage armoire to finish off your family room? Head to the Ocean Beach Antique District, where you'll find hundreds of antique dealers just a block from the Pacific Ocean.

Luxe La Jolla is the place for jewelry stores, art galleries and upscale clothing boutiques like Ralph Lauren and Chico's.

The Gaslamp Quarter is home to big-name brands like Urban Outfitters and Skechers, but there are a few quirky, independent boutiques here as well.

Hillcrest, home to San Diego's LGBT community, is also home to some of the city's hippest urban boutiques; used books, retro clothes and unique housewares are among the specialties here.

Westfield Horton Plaza, an upscale urban shopping mall only a 10-minute walk away from the waterfront, has a Macy's department store as its flagship and includes plenty of familiar brands.
