Shop

National City shopping opportunities include a wide variety of indoor and outdoor retail centers with stores for the entire family.

If you’re looking for things to do in San Diego, we encourage you to shop ‘til you drop at the recently renovated Westfield Plaza Bonita Mall.  Westfield Plaza Bonita is one of the only entirely closed shopping centers in San Diego County, and is home to upscale shops and national brands. With its newly upgraded and sleek renovations, this two-story mall is a shopper’s paradise. The mall has added more stores than ever before, plus it has an expansive food court featuring popular sit-down restaurants, a new playground structure, and an impressive 14-screen cinema.

The world-renowned Mile of Cars is another shopping attraction in National City. Recognized as one of the first auto malls in the world, National City’s Mile of Cars is a mile-long stretch encompassing 21 car franchises. This historic boulevard has grown to be one of the most successful automobile associations in the country and is definitely one thing to do in San Diego that visitors should experience.

One of the other great things to do in San Diego is getting the most bang for your buck at the National City Swap Meet (3201 D Avenue, 619-477-2203), which is open on weekends from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Pricebreakers Indoor Swap Meet (1021 Highland Ave) where you can scoop up lots of great deals like a flavor-packed fruit salad for $7 or three pairs of shoes for the price of two!

If you want to venture beyond National City for even more shopping options in the area, the Las Americas Premium Outlets and world-famous Horton Plaza are both only a 10 minute drive away.
