If you have never been to South Coast Plaza it offers high end shopping with some average priced stores also.Has interesting dining inside the mall as well as around the exterior. If you love shopping this may be for you! I would also check out nearby fashion island. Stores range in the plaza from Sears to Macys to the upscale... More

There's a sense of space and openness - huge variety of up-scale shopping that you'd find in Paris or Rome, and there is still a Sears. Includes "famous" Carousel, children's train across at annex, and beautiful stained glass dome ceiling in front of Macy's. Lots of food choices - but NOT a food court kind of place. The annex across... More

Every brand imaginable is available at South Coast Plaza. From high end brands such as St Laurent, Gucci and Chanel to Forever 21, H&M and Sears, you can find anything and everything you never knew you wanted and/or needed!!!

I am a husband who can normally find better things to do than visit a shopping mall. In the Orange County area, however, there are two malls that I look forward to visiting on our winter trip to the area. They are the South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island. South Coast Plaza is a shopping mall like no other that... More

This mall has many stores and excellent restaurants. The two sections of the mall are connected by an outdoor bridge. There are many indoor and outdoor parking places. Many of the stores are "high class" stores with very high prices, but there are also many bargain stores. Getting around the mall isn't easy (even with a map). For quality shopping... More

We have been shopping at South Coast Plaza since it opened in the 1960's. What a transformation it has made from a place to shop for jeans at Sears to where the elite come to drops their dollars on rare jewelry and overpriced clothing. Shopping and dining can be an event and if one seeks the very best in the... More

This mall is amazing! Yes, there is alot of high end shopping, but there are still stores that you would find in an above average mall too. The mall is very clean and beautiful. I loved shopping at the Victoria Secret for the CA selection and Bloomingdales for a quick makeup fix. I love how they change up there themes... More

SCP is a wonderful place to shop. Hands down! It has something for everyone ranging from Sears to Hermes. It's easy to navigate inside (the floor plan is in the shape of an H) and they have concierge desks in addition to info kiosks. Valet parking is offered in numerous locations around the plaza, making it even easier to park.... More

Unique, upscale, second-to-none shopping/dining destination. Will not disappoint whether you're looking to buy or simply window shop.

Don't even mention the word "mall" here. This is the most glamorous shopping under one roof in the world. Think Rodeo Drive and the Champs Elysees all in one place.
