San Diego Shopping in the Sunshine


San Diego ranks among the top 10 sunniest cities in the United States. With about 266 days of sunshine a year, visitors are able to bask in the sun while strolling around one of these top outdoor shopping areas that the city has to offer:

  1. Fashion Valley is a two-story mall has big name brands and bargains alike. Shoppers can smell the fine leather inside the likes of Coach and Prada or grab some stellar steals at Forever 21 and Armani Exchange. When you need to give your feet a break, grab a coffee at a department store café, like 59th&Lex in Bloomingdales, or sit down for a healthy and hearty organic meal at True Food Kitchen. We also recommend signing up to become a “Mall Insider” on their website before vising so you can get the scoop all new trends, store specials and mall events.
  2. Horton Plaza is a must-see for anyone visiting San Diego. This eclectic and maze-like fives story mall is easy to get lost in, which is why downloading the Westfield Mall smartphone app with a map is a good idea.  If you’re looking for designer duds, this mall has it.

Trouble parking downtown? The Horton Plaza parking garage is free for three hours if you get your parking ticket validated when you make a $10 mall purchase.
  3. If you’re looking for bayside boutiques and family fun, then cruise down to Seaport Village to peruse the 50+ small shops. This is also a great place to listen to their free outdoor Sunday concerts, stroll along the beautiful San Diego Bay or attend one of their many weekly events like poetry readings. The parking lot does get packed during weekends but if you snag a spot in the Seaport Village parking lot be sure to validate your ticket with a $10 purchase, which will reduce the hourly parking rate from $8 to $3 for the first hour.

If you need a convenient place to stay and would rather spend your money shopping than on an overpriced hotel room, consider the Pacific Inn hotel near San Diego downtown. Call 1-800571-2933 to speak with a Reservation Manager today and be sure to ask about our weekly specials!
