From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The antique district of Ocean Beach, San Diego [1], located just west of downtown, is a neighborhood marked by a large concentration of antiques and collectibles shops.

The antique district is located in a two-block stretch on Newport Avenue on the main street in Ocean Beach. The shops are within walking distance to the beach and the O.B. pier -- at the foot of Newport Avenue -- the second-longest pier on the California coast. Ocean Beach has been a destination for antiques since the 1980s, but it was only recognized by the city of San Diego as an official district in the late 1990s. The San Diego 2007 Official Visitor Planning Guide wrote that "a bit unexpectedly ... Newport Avenue is the site of the Ocean Beach Antique District with stores and dealers offering up everything from 19th-century armoires to 1950s kitsch."[2]

The district has been called an "Antique Row" by San Diego Magazine, and is also listed as a "Favorite Resource" in Rachel Ashwell's book, Shabby Chic Treasure Hunting & Decorating Guide.[3]
