B E G I N YO U R T R E A S U R E H U N T in La Jolla at Westfield UTC, a sun-splashed outdoor complex
with more than 150 stores. Serious shoppers will appreciate Westfield's variety-big American names
like Tiffany and Tesla alongside trendy French furniture designer Roche Bobois. Next, head north
along Pacific Coast Highway to Solana Beach's Cedros Avenue Design District, a beachy 'hood dotted
with vibrant specialty shops. Check out SoLo's designer-curated collectibles and housewares.
Take a shopping break on the patio at Claire's on Cedros-order a fried green tomato or chimichurri
steak sandwich-then cruise 75 minutes north, enjoying ocean views for much of the drive, to Newport
Beach's nautical-themed Lido Marina Village. Fill your car with fabulous finds from home decor style
icons Serena & Lily and then push on to Costa Mesa's South Coast Plaza, Southern California's largest
luxury shopping hub. It would take a week to browse more than 200 posh boutiques, including Cartier
and Dolce & Gabbana, but do your best before unwinding for the night in Newport Beach.
You'll need lots of energy for day two, so rev up your morning with a turmeric latté from local
roaster Kéan Coffee, then make the 90-minute drive to Santa Monica. Stroll car-free Third Street
Promenade with its colorful street performers and shops brimming with collectibles, like multi-hued
kaleidoscopes and vases at Adamm's Stained Glass and a vast trove of guitars at Truetone Music.
Nearby, Montana Avenue offers more tree-shaded browsing plus possible celebrity sightings at
Kreation Kafe's juice bar.
Brace yourself for your next stop-Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive is L.A.'s pinnacle of luxury, known for
glamorous couture (think Versace and Prada). Shop like a jet-setter or just snap a selfie by the Via
Rodeo sign on Two Rodeo Drive, a faux-European cobblestone alley. Recharge overnight in a luxurious
bed at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, then wake early and make a break for the desert.

Split up the two-hour drive with a stop at Ontario Mills. Breeze through a handful of 200 retail
outlets (Coach, Hugo Boss, and Kate Spade New York among them), then cruise past the desert's
majestic windmill farms to forever-sunny Palm Springs, where regal palms sway above chic boutiques.
On North Palm Canyon Drive, dig through the Uptown Design District's time-capsule shops for midcentury furnishings and retro clothing. Don't miss Trina Turk's colorful sportswear and Dazzles' fleamarket treasures: Lucite jewelry, vintage highball glasses, and gold-plated serving dishes.
You've had another long day, but Palm Desert's swank shops are only 20 minutes away. Muster your
