Things to Do: Ocean Beach Antique District, San Diego, California

Ocean Beach Antique District  4800-4900 blocks of Newport Ave., (619) 233-9020.  A large concentration of shops in this two-block area specializes in American antiques, glassware, jewelry, and collectibles.  Parking is plentiful and free, yet it is very difficult to find a space because this area is also close to the beach.

  1. I like the free parking spots, even if it's quite a challenge to find one.

  2. Sounds like a fun window shopping place. Unfortunately, as a downsized empty nester, I only permit myself to buy refrigerator magnets on our travels.

    1. My downsizing motto is something in, something out--preferably two somethings!
