It’s no surprise that most of us indulge while on vacation. We dine out, book spa services, and visit expensive attractions. One of the most popular ways to indulge is certainly shopping. Because of Solana Beach’s close proximity to the affluent neighborhoods of Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe, this location boasts many high end retailers and unique shopping experiences.
For a charming, European style shopping experience, try Del Mar Plaza. This outdoor plaza features beautiful views of the California coast and over 30 shops. Here you’ll find everything from mall staples, like Banana Republic, to one of kind boutiques, like Peaches En Regalia. Whether you’re looking for designer clothing or simply a nice place to walk around, Del Mar Plaza is a great choice.
Located just down the street from Winners Circle Resort, the Flower Hill Promenade is another top shopping destination for locals and tourists alike. Smaller than a typical mall, but packed with charming boutiques, Flower Hill will delight the most discerning shopper. Flower Hill features many specialty shops like the Dallmann Chocolate Boutique, Venissimo Chees, and Diamond Boutique.
If you love finding a good deal, drive just 15 minutes north of Solana Beach to experience the Carlsbad Premium Outlets. With 90 outlets, including Coach and Crate & Barrel, this mega mall offers something for everyone.
