If you submit a “yes” to this question, then you can’t miss San Diego, a shoppers’ paradise in California. This popular destination offers no dearth options with a great many wonderful shopping malls, like Chula Vista Center, Otay Ranch Town Center, Fashion Valley and Mission Valley, as well as Horton Plaza.
Horton Plaza located in the downtown area was redeveloped in the mid-1980s from a major public transit center to a popular shopping mall. The multi-level bright-colored architecture somewhat looks confusing to first time visitors, but it arises great interest in visitors and adds tremendous attraction to this mall. And the shops and eateries inside are by any means great and attractive.
This plaza houses more than 150 shops and stores, which are anchored by Macy’s and Nordstrom, two popular branded stores. Levi’s Store for denim, Optometric Expression with designer eyewear, Louis Vuitton for the best leather items and BCBG, Bebe and Steve & Barry’s are the signature stores in this place. Apparel being the main goods here, general merchandise like toys, electronics goods, books, souvenirs and jewelry sold here also draw great attention from shoppers.
If you get exhausted after wandering about purchasing all the time, there are also some brilliant eateries here waiting for you. On the third floor of Horton Plaza, you will find a great many restaurants providing all kinds of foods and snacks. Sitting inside any one of Samba Grill, California Crepe, Panda Inn and Napa Valley Grille, you are guaranteed a feast of the mouth. If you mean to enjoy some true local flavor and other specialty foods, just head to Gaslamp, which is not far from this unique shopping mall.
