Strategically placed in the middle of the sun-kissed hills of residential Northern San Diego, the Forum shopping center has established an excellent reputation despite its recent construction. The minute you enter into the palm-lined roadway, you view a high profile cluster of outdoor stores situated to take advantage of the ocean breezes and plentiful sunshine.

Between the storefronts, white lights enhance the enchanting atmosphere and inviting feel of the Forum. Surrounding various fountains and koi-ponds are benches to help you to relax during your shopping endeavors. The stores themselves are designed in a new, modern style, with each storefront unique to the retail it holds.

The particular shops included in the Forum provide upscale merchandise that reflects the clean, luxurious architecture and landscape of the shopping center. Stores such as Anthrpologie and Free People provide women with eclectic and detailed items of clothing that will be treasured long after purchase. The Forum features clothing chains such as Tilly's and Victoria's Secret to provide outfits for families of all budgets as well as a Bed, Bath, and Beyond for home good needs. Premiering just a year ago, an Apple Store serves San Diego's North County and draws a large amount of technology gurus daily.

Don't weigh yourself down with the accumulation of shopping bagsā€”the parking lot weaves throughout the entire shopping center so your car is never far off. While shopping, be sure to stop in for a light meal of sandwiches or salad at the classy Panera or a full Italian meal at the vibrant and high-energy Buca de Beppo.
