We stayed at a nearly Marriott and looked forward to going to the mall to do some shopping. 95% of the stores are the types of stores where anyone making less than $100K/yr would NOT shop. With stores like Gucci, Rolex, Prada....this mall reminds me of the Forum Shops at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

SC P'S advertising always list them as a shopping destination but never bothers to tell you where they are located.For everyone's information the city is Costa Mesa. They are a collection of mainly high end stores with some very excellent restaurants . Don't bring any hungry children as they took out McDonald's and the Rain Forest restaurants, which my grandchildren... More

One of the most amazing shoppers malls....you need a day or two to see it all. They have it all, from affordable stuff to the best brand stores with prices that make you dizzy I go back there every time I am Costa Mesa. Love it.

This mall is huge, however we couldn't afford 95% of the store's. If you're on a budget go to orange county outlets. It's way better.

This place is huge and has multiple building connected by bridges. The stores stretch from very high end to every day needs. I imagine they have a store you are interested in. I like that they had unique stores like UNIQLO, Ivivva and Lululemon that can sometimes be hard to find. They also had a nice selection of restaurants.

Having lived in the area for decades and worked in the Plaza in the 70's, it's been amazing to watch how Henry Segerstrom has brought in the most advanced and fashion forward shops and restaurants from around the country and world, changing them out as fashion & buying trends change. Three anchor stores allow a mix of clientele to enjoy... More

This mall will keep you busy for an entire day! Wear your walking shoes. Every store is here in one of two buildings or across the street. We were there before it opened on a Sunday and it was busier then than our hometown mall is when it is closed.

What every eager shopper looking for their next MK bag or DKNY clubbin outfit needs valet parking and a VIP lounge to relax and try on your purchases. There's even a non-denominational spiritual room to overcome that moment you realize you forgot to pickup a bottle of Coach perfume! On the lighter side, if you're looking to change your shopping...

I often fly to Los Angeles, from San Francisco, just to come shopping at South Coast Plaza. The array of stores and boutiques rival that of the fashion capitol of the world, and everything is at your fingertips. From fine dining to exclusive shopping, nothing beats South Coast Plaza!
