San Diego Shopping



Westfield UTC Review

This popular outdoor mall on the east side of I–5 has more than 150 shops and 28 eateries, plus an ArcLight Cinemas and an ice-skating rink. Nordstrom, Macy's, and Sears anchor the center, and specialty stores of note include Charles David (858/625–0275), for high-fashion women's shoes; Naartjie (858/625–0940), for children's clothing and accessories; Chuao Chocolatier (858/546–1463), for artisanal chocolates; and Toys, Etc. (858/459–5104), for dolls, train sets, games, and educational toys. One of the country's greenest shopping centers, UTC has lush gardens, open-air plazas, and pedestrian-friendly walkways. Additional eco-friendly cred: Tesla, maker of electric automobiles, shows off its models here.

Papyrus. Stop in for a wide selection of San Diego postcards, whimsical note cards, gifts, and fine stationery. 858/458–1399.

Toys, Etc. Children of all ages will delight in the dolls, train sets, games, and educational toys sold at this well-stocked store. 4373 La Jolla Village Dr., 92037. 858/459–5104.
