San Diego

University Towne Centre Shopping Center

This open-air shopping mall in the University area lies just east of La Jolla near the University of California, San Diego campus. Owned by Westfield Group, anchor stores include Macy`s, Nordstrom and Sears. UTC as it is called in short is a pleasant outdoor mall in the Golden Triangle area, serving the La Jolla/Univeristy City/Clairemont region. There may be nothing special in terms of architecture, but the "town center" connotation conjures up a neighborhood feel, well reflected in its roundabout layout. The food court houses Ice Skating, Hockey, Football, Baseball, Soccer and more sports. Its landscaped plaza with more than 150 stores and dining spots is home to stores like Apple, Anthropologie, Crate & Barrel and an outlet of Encinitas-based Chuao Chocolatier. It remains a most family-friendly shopping center.
