most excellent shopping and dining up and down as long as you don't forget your wallet. the wife and kids love the shops, me, the food. Can't go wrong here and it's kind of a must see area, everyone will find something they want
Girard and Prospct streets run perpendicular to each other and are the center of the shopping area of La Jolla. The shops, galleries and restaurants are not huge, but small and inviting for the most part.
