As many residents will tell you, the San Diego shopping scene keeps getting better and better. Major shopping malls have experienced both aesthetic facelifts while adding in more chic brands but there are also pockets of shopping scattered throughout the county that are worth a visit.
Fashion Valley more than deserves its top ranking spot on this list for sheer variety and ease of navigation. The two-story mall is anchored by the county's only Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales stores as well as Nordstrom and Macy's. In between the anchors, shoppers can find J.Crew, H&M, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Williams-Sonoma and other favorites.
La Jolla's Prospect Street, known as San Diego's "Rodeo Drive," offers dozens of shops featuring designer apparel, art and fine jewelry. Shoppers will find mostly one-of-a-kind boutiques here though bigger brands such as Kate Spade, Lululemon and even Sur la Table are here.
Those seeking a more casual, boho vibe should head to the Cedros Avenue Design District in Solana Beach. Browse the street lined with shops for unique gifts, garden accessories and books.
Almost anything you could possibly have the hankering to buy can be found in San Diego. Here are the best places to go.
