Outlet Mall
“If you're looking for discounts, the Las Americas Premium Outlets is located on the US Mexico border. Just make sure you exit at the right place or you'll need a passport to get back home.”

Performing Arts Venue
“Revolution Avenue, known to locals as "La Revu," is Tijuana's main tourist drag, and is within walking distance of the U.S. border crossing. If you want to do the stereotypical tourist thing, buy a big sombrero and have your photo taken with a donkey that has zebra stripes painted on it, this is the place for it. But after that, you should take the opportunity to discover some of the shops, restaurants and galleries that you'll also find along this strip. There's more than just t-shirts, postcards, and drug stores selling cheap medicine. You'll also find silver jewelry, quality handicrafts from around the country, and boutique shops selling all manner of luxury items.”
