This is my favorite of the 4 main restaurants in Seaport Village. I've come here for both lunch and dinner and I've also sat outside and inside. I actually prefer being inside because the a/c is usually on. When I had my meal outside, I felt like I was burning up. The servers are very nice and attentive. Food and drinks are delicious. It just gets really busy during the summer (of course.)
I've lived nearby these apartments for 10+ years and I have friends who lived/still live here and I definitely don't recommend anyone who's in the market. This holds true to it's reputation of being unsafe. In my middle school years, an acquaintance of mine was involved in a drive-by at the bus stop right in front. Every other year or so, there's a drug bust (by the same bus stop) & I always have to find a way around to get into my own neighborhood. I felt so bad for these foreign exchange students when I found out they were living here for the entire academic year!
Planet X is basically an extension of GameStop. I usually prefer going in here even though it's smaller because they tend to be more friendly. I think they might even have a bigger selection of Used games. Either way, it's exactly like another GameStop.
It took me a few trips to Seaport Village to actually know this store existed. I don't know how I used to always manage to skip out on this store along with the Harley-Davidson store. Anyways, all times that I've went in, a very nice breeze was flowing through the store and it felt so nice to relax on all the hammocks they have out. The staff is also very friendly and like to strike up a good conversation. It's Seaport Village and near downtown, so it is pricey!
It's like the Asian 99 cent store, except it's $1.50! (For the most part.) They have everything here; it's the best spot for Japanese enthusiasts & I still have yet to find out what "special items" this particular Daiso has compared to others. Got a friend who loves Japanese everything? Just go here and make a goodie bag! It's worked for me!
It's a nice try for a small-scale pet store. The only thing I got from here was a bunny rabbit because the ones in the pet store at Parkway Plaza was twice the price.
Great place for beach wear all year long. It's pricey, but sales are most definitely worth checking out. I got a tank top here for like $15 when the original price was almost $30? I like that the store is organized by brand and the next purchase I look forward to is a pair of Reef flip flops!
It's a pretty big place with a wide selection of food and not bad on prices. I think it might be the closest Chinese buffet in my neighborhood, but I'd rather drive a little further to have better quality since this one's just average. It's great for rehearsal dinners/birthdays because of all the seating! Other than that, it's not a top choice for me.
This is a high-end mall in my opinion... I suppose to cater to the high-end looking part of New Chula Vista. My sister and I only make the trips down here because it's less crowded than other malls and generally has all the stores we like to go in to. (Sephora, PacSun, Lucky Brand, H&M, etc.) If I were a tourist, I would really like to go to this mall, but it feels so out of the way with everything else centered around SD's Gaslamp Quarter.
I think this place is more for those visiting colleges and such and couldn't get a chance to go in the actual bookstore of the university.. or doesn't know an SDSU student to take them there themselves. I was glad to see that they have more than just apparel, and for each member of the family. (Alumni, parents/grandparents, babies, etc.)
