Horton Plaza shopping mall
This mall was an urban renewal project that was designed in 1975 and opened in 1985. It has five levels of shopping - more than 6 city blocks - that includes 190 stores (the big ones are Nordstrom and Macy's), a movie theatre, a grocery store, a reperatory theatre and a hotel is attached to the property. So if you visit, you may not have to even leave these 6 blocks except to and from the airport! Since its opening, Horton Plaza has been a booming business and the surrounding downtown area is now the most happening spot to go for nightlife in San Diego.
