Ever gone shopping or gotten a haircut to boost your mood? There’s nothing wrong with a little retail therapy as long as you don’t break the bank. In the heart of La Jolla Village, on the corner of Girard Avenue and Wall Street, La Plaza La Jolla has enough salons, shops, and places to eat to keep occupied and happy all day. This sleek piazza reminds us of a place we’d find in Spain or Morocco. Besides the tiles and greenery, it has a pleasing vibe. What’s best, there are chic, lobby-like areas with cushy seating to sink into while you wait for friends or an appointment.

The plaza has three levels featuring inlaid porcelain tiled stairs, as well as elevators. On each level, you’ll find something you’ve been wanting to try. There are cutting-edge salons offering mineral and vitamin IVs and injections, brow shaping, spray tanning, or lashes; friendly shops selling CBD products, engagement rings, Swiss chocolates, and Israeli/Palestinian clothing; and eateries featuring espresso, sushi, organic superfoods, and Italian coastal cuisine with panoramic ocean views.

So, take time for a little retail therapy. Book a salon appointment, relax on a big sofa to catch up on your phone, meet a friend for lunch, do some shopping, maybe even find your dream home—all in this wonderful plaza. Just be sure you’re on the third level in time for the sunset!
