  • Mall! But or? Architecture bizaroide with stories and the confusing with stairs, escalator and elevator. Many shops closed and abandoned. Restaurants closed also (like Taco Bell, for example). Very little frequented: logic. A tip: don't waste your time avoid to come. Only interest maybe the post office on the ground floor to buy stamps and post his mail.

  • Pretty nice place to go if you are looking to explore a little. This place is a pretty good size and the only place I found during my time in San Diego that sold San Diego gulls jerseys.  more »

  • As far as open-air malls this is a pretty good one. Stores range from mid-tier to moderately uppity. The food court is lacking, and there aren't any convenient plugs if you need to charge, but that's not really why you're going to a mall. Security keeps a pretty good leash on the overwhelming homeless masses that occupy the nearby area, so you shouldn't get harassed by panhandlers, but if you venture too far away that's another story. There are plenty of good eating options in the nearby area.
  • I love the look of this mall. I went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty dead. It is located in downtown San Diego so there is a great deal of homeless population around, but there is security that keeps them from loitering. Overall I think it's a great place to walk around and shop.
  • I work at this mall. It will be going through a renovation soon. Beautiful public space on the Broadway side and a restored theatre space ( The Balboa). Some stores have left but most are still open. Including the anchor store Macy's. There are movie theatres on the top level as well as a comedy club. There is also a great natural foods store, Jimbo's. Check it out.
  • Great shopping area right in the heart of downtown San Diego in Gaslamp. Parking can get a little expensive in the garage if you're there for a long time. I recommend visiting on weekdays after 6pm and find free parking on the street or Sundays when parking on the street is free all day. I visit the 24 Hour Fitness here and they validate your parking for 2 hours (just FYI).
  • Cool shopping area. Variety of shops and eateries to check out. Getting around (upper and lower levels) can be a bit confusing if you're​ unfamiliar with the place. It's an open mall area but the wind circulates through pretty well. Nice spot altogether.
