This is a street of interesting boutiques, antique stores, furnishings, restaurants, and real estate offices down the road from the Solana Beach train station. Go on Sunday afternoons and check out the farmers market which has interesting food vendors aside from produce. Check out the Jamaican food stall for something unique in San Diego.

This is a wonderful shopping & entertainment street. We have been in the antique shops - even one that has an Italian Collection. The shops are open to the public - not 'To the Trades Only' so there is a great mix. It's near the train station, so it's easy to take a ride there. Lots of people enjoy the... More

Take a stroll along Cedros and wander into the eclectic shops, breweries, cafes, etc. A great place to spend a few hours or take out-of-towners for a fun experience. Then walk a block west to Fletcher Cove and enjoy the lovely cove and ocean view.

The Cedros Design District has something for everyone: great clothes and shoes at Cedros Soles and the shop for guys next door called His; fine jewelry, higher end furniture shops, dining, the Belly Up music venue and much much more. The Amtrak station is right there too, so this makes a great day trip destination. Sundays has a very nice... More

Stores come and go, but this is a good area to meander through and look at shops. If you come in the evenings the Belly Up Tavern has live music and food.

If you are looking for a few hours of pleasure, take a walk on North and South Cedros through the Design District. There are so many interesting shops to visit and this review is written by a person that hates shopping! But Cedros is a 5 STAR destination that exemplifies quality and creativity. Oh, and if you are looking for... More

We stopped in this sweet area while on our way to La Jolla. Great little artsy shops and food options. Nice to stroll, free parking, no big crowds. Peaceful town with great breeze and atmosphere. Loved it.

I dislike shopping, so I can't believe I'm writing this review. However, we spent the day shopping here and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The unique shops were fun to see with items you can't find elsewhere. This is my kind of shopping. Spend a relaxing day with a good friend or family member, hit a cafe and enjoy yourself.
