San Diego is filled with fantastic shopping in malls and in neighborhood boutiques. You can fill your suitcase with souvenirs at any time of year; if you're here for Thanksgiving, you're sure to find special gifts at special prices during the Black Friday sales. Be sure to check the shops listed below, and remember to look for something for yourself, too!
Horton Plaza is just a few blocks from the Convention Center and right next to the Gaslamp Quarter, so it's a great shopping destination whether you're here for business or as a tourist. The outdoor mall's vibrant colors make shopping here fun, and you'll find bargains in stores like Macys, Banana Republic, and Forever 21. Then browse the streets of the historic Gaslamp Quarter, where there are 16 blocks of unique boutiques featuring accessories and home goods.
There are great buys all year long at Las Americas Premium Outlets. Find designer specials at Armani Outlet, Brooks Brothers Factory Store, and more. The latest upscale designer goods are featured at Fashion Valley Mall, including Gucci, Hermes, and Prada.
If shopping isn't your idea of fun, you'll change your mind at Seaport Village. Along with views of Coronado Bridge, browse the unique offerings in shops like American Nostalgia, For Bare Feet, and Kite Flite, then take a spin on a historic carousel or have your caricature done. You can combine shopping with sightseeing by heading to Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town.
After you're done shopping, bring your packages back to your room here at The Dana on Mission Bay and relax! Have dinner in your room or enjoy dinner outdoors by the firepit. You'll be able to unwind in style knowing all your holiday shopping is done!
