Great Shops

Many little shops within bigger shops with everything you could think of. Found a lot of Christmas presents.

A two or three block shopping area of small shops and restaurants. Easy parking and a little bit of everything offered.

I believe this street was once THE place to go if you were decorating or designing a home. I think that is still true to some extent as there are still several stores specializing in high end flooring, art, etc. The trend, however, seems to have moved toward the street housing a number of "artisan consignment shops" (Leaping Lotus, etc.)...

This is a great artistic community. There are great galleries, shopping, and food, for everyone and for every taste. A great are to stroll around and find a nice gift, souvenir, to eat , or drink. This area display the neighborhood vibe and atmosphere. If you walk around on Sunday afternoon, please visit the Farmers Market, you will enjoy it.

I recently had an artist friend visit me from another country and I took her to the Cedros Design district, this area has changed and I was embarrassed to say the least, many of the eclectic and high quality art galleries that had featured local artists are gone, the wonderful garden center is gone, there are a couple shops worth...

Lots of ways to find the perfect something to fill those empty spaces in your home. Not so good for girls who want to have lunch and find cute boutique shops. It has some but not as many as I'd like.

Wanted to escape the crowded beaches of Memorial Day, so we went here instead. Liked it a lot. Very easy walking distance from the train (Coaster) station; highly recommend this route as most parking has a 3 hour limit. Nice variety of shops: boutiques for fashionistas, antiques for the treasure hunters and home interiors for nesters. Also variety of price... More

Upscale hip beach feel shopping & self-care. Can't do better than Deco Hair Studio for a make-over. Thom a senior stylist is EXPERT in color, repairs and new cuts! Great shops of all kinds.

This is a lovely place to visit. Even if it's only a few blocks filled with things to do, it's definitely worth a visit. A few cook (but expensive) boutique stores around and a few specialty galleries that are worth browsing around in. Some are only by appointment so make sure you do that first. To be honest, I wish...

The street has become a bad destination in the last year. A very commercial street with few restaurants that serve low quality food and bad stores with poor quality merchandize The only unique and international stores are disappearing and street is misnamed as a design district. The beautiful garden store has left, the a couple of cosmopolitan stores that are... More
