Renaissance Towne Center is a small, pretty shopping plaza in University City, near UC San Diego. Students gather here to have a boba tea at Arteazan, or a coffee at Peet's Coffee. At night it's enchanting because of the clocktower. A landscaped stream that is nice to walk around. There are a few cafes to choose from, such as Amardeen Lebanese or Star Anise Thai. After, take the stairs and walk the beautiful pedestrian path through a housing complex with sculptures and fountains, to the corner of Shoreline Drive and Renaissance Ave, where you can continue your walk along the sidewalk to Nobel Athletic Area. Here you will find a loop path around the athletic field that is popular with residents.
Drive to the ocean to see the waves at Scripps Pier. It is 13 minutes away.
