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.

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!

The Costa Mesa & New Port Beach area are deserve a huge shopping center like this. It has a lot of shops and famous Department stores to satisfy all kinds of need. Accessible from I-5 , 405 and other main highways within South California. I really recommend it to those live or visit LA.

Always enjoy a stop here when in the area. If you can't find it here...it probably doesn't exist. Allow plenty of time...I could always use more .... Spacious enough that it never feels crowded.
