Knitter's must-see shop located in the jewel of in La Jolla.....I love the beautiful multi color yarns and textures this store carry like no other yarn shop does. The owner has been in this business for over 30 years and she is very nice, always happy to answer your question. It gets very crowded on weekends and during the summer vacation season.....to the point where you have to squeeze yourself between people to get what you want.
Encore of La Jolla is a tiny boutique with tremendous quality clothings that are all top designer labels - i.e., Vera Wang, Chanel, Gucci, Armani, Badgely Mischka, St. John, Dior, Valentino, Prada, Versace, Ungaro.....etc etc. The only difference is that Encore buys these gently worn clothes and recycles them.....therefore passing on to as many as 80% of savings to patrons....gotta love that!
Pretty cool jeweler in the beach city! Only blocks away from the beautiful ocean, this jeweler is both professional, sincere and treat customers with hospitality. I would visit them again anytime I'm in the area. Look for the blue rooftop.
This is one of my favorite stores in La Jolla.....depite the upscale location and quality of the chic clothing they carry, they don't seem to reflect on their prices....which is a GOOD thing! Both classy and trendy women's clothes with affordable prices in a cozy atmosphere, what more can I ask for?
5 reasons I would never do business with them again: #1, I was awaken at 7am by loud engine and machine noises coming from the auto body shop next door which lasted all day long till 7pm. #2 The front lobby is not open 24 hours. #3 Their card key kept getting whacked every day and each time I leave my room, I had to get a new card. It was so frustrating, especially at night when I go get my ice in my pjs and my key just wouldn't work!!! #4 The bed - NASTY #5 the room - NASTY This was the worst kind of Fairfield Inn I have ever stayed in my life. Shame on Marriott, they should put this in the "motel" category.
For no apparent reason, I've always preferred this mall to most others in Southern California. Maybe it's because of nicer employees and relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. They have many trendy stores but people are never as katty or snobby as they seem so in LA.....no offense, LA people! Gotta love the dining places all around, too!
If you drive down Hwy 5 from Los Angeles towards Mexico, you will see this waterfront landmark on your right hand side about the same time you pass Sea World. There is something different about shopping and dining over the water as you smell the scent of ocean. Even a fastfood tastes better looking over the ocean.
This was my first experience at Horton Plaza a few years ago when I got to stay at this W Hotel with my best friend. I think we had to pay for overnight valet parking but the service was absolutely top-notch from the check-in to check-out. The room was not too big but the bathroom was bigger than usual with marble top counter and double sinks. The beds were so soft that I had a really good sleep. We walked around the hotel, ate at a really nice Italian restaurant, had some Cappaccino later and did some major shopping at Horton Plaza. I can't wait to go back!
Horton plaza is very unique in that it is an open air mall where there are no rooftop over your head as you stroll through shops like Banana, Express, Gap, etc. Dining experience at Horton is even better than shopping as well as the quality of the hotels all around. Catch some ray and enjoy the warm day!
Experience in the Old Town is none other but if you take this trolley tour, your excitement and joy will be doubled as opposed to walking around. You have a full 2 hours of narrated ride, not just through Old Town but throughout the major San Diego Points - i.e., Balboa Park, San Diego Zoo, Hotton Plaza, etc. Pretty cool!
