Riding to the west, it joins with Sea World Drive, following along the San Diego River. Riding east, it passes Riverwalk Golf Club and Fashion Valley Mall, one of San Diego’s premier shopping centers. Further east there are myriad shopping complexes interspersed with lovely apartment and condominium projects. Great restaurants abound along Friars and there are numerous opportunities for nighttime entertainment. Near the east end of Friars Road is Qualcomm Stadium.
