After visiting the various shopping malls and complex in the world, the South Coast Plaza still rank among the very best of them all. Maybe because the shopping structures were built when cost of construction and space were secondary to the function and aesthetic of the mall. SCP gives the elegant and class where others may be lacking. Specially during... More

You don't have to be a shopper to enjoy this mall, especially at Christmas time. The decorations are beautiful and the window shopping is the icing on the cake. Traffic and parking can be difficult during the holidays so I HIGHLY recommend you try to visit during "off" hours.

A carousel with reindeer. The best Santa. Ornament making for the kids AND an unbelievable mall with everything. This mall is fabulous on a regular day but a must visit during the holidays with the kids.

Ms. Thurmond is one of Louis Vuitton's top selling employees and I was fortunate to make her acquaintance many years ago. I have been buying this brand for many years before I met Tasha but was never "loyal" to a location or particular sales associate until I met her. Not only is Tasha an excellent representative of the Louis Vuitton... More

No doubt about it, this is a high end mall where you can expect to see the very best designers and the highest prices around. Tiffany's, Gucci, Prada, Canali, Valentino, St. Johns, and all the rest are here. Don't expect any sales or discounts though, you'll pay the full premium rates here. If you have some time to kill or... More

Large selection of restaurants to choose from in all price ranges. There is a bridge that connects across the street to the Crystal Court. Across the street from Crystal Court are outlets, DSW,...

This is where you can find the high end shops anchored by Nordstrom's, Bloomingdale's, and a few others. Though I didn't have enough time to see everything, I did notice that there is a walking bridge that connects to the block across the street where you can find some outlet type of shops. All relatively close to SNA.

I was staying at the Westin, just across the street from this mega mall and when I asked what there was to do in this area of town, several hotel staff did not hesitate, and referred me to the mall. There is a walk-way across the busy highway to the mall and once you get inside this air conditioned oasis... More
