South Coast Plaza is located on 405 Freeway, which you can see when you are on Freeway so it's not easily missed. With lot of parking, and parking structure, ones can find a spot to park and shop and don't have to worry about meters. I like the way SOuth Coast Plaza distributed: all the high end boutiques are at... More

It's big, It has everything. A few service stores are across the road like Rite Aid so you can do most of your shopping in the same area. Some good restaurants around the outside of the center.

This is a fantastic mall for high end luxury brands. It's spacious, clean, and devoid of throngs of people. Staff in the stores I visited are friendly and courteous. There are some seasonal sales but don't come expecting them.

This plaza has it all. Luxury brands and more reasonable brands in terms of price. Good places to ear. Nice atmospheres. The only thing that is confusing are the two separate buildings making it hard to decide where to start. Since both places have shops you enjoy. The prices are good if you hit sales, actually better that some of... More

I don't usually like indoor malls but this place is an exception. They literally have everything in it. Every brand. At Christmas time is the best with their decorations.

Parking is free and abundant. So many restaurants - definitely something for everyone. The real draw however is all the marvelous high end, luxurious places to shop! Even if you're just window shopping, it's so much fun.

Beautiful mall with lots of High End Stores. Easy free parking, in a very nice neighborhood. Great people watching. We found some good bargains at several places. Also enjoyed the merry-go-round, and the vendor with all the colorful balloons. Great anchor stores, and fun boutiques scattered throughout. Nice place to spend the day.
