Westfield Horton Plaza

Mall in San Diego

At the edge of the Gaslamp, this five-story, seven-block shopping mall features shops big and small, including Macy's, Bebe and Forever 21. Los Angeles-based architect Jon Jerde – who also designed Universal City Walk – gave it colorful, toy-town arches and postmodernist balconies, making it feel slightly like an MC Escher drawing. Free one-hour parking, $2 per 15 minutes thereafter.
