For anyone coming to Orange County CA South Coast Plaza is worth a stop. Every designer brand you can imagine has a flagship store here...plus COS, Zara, department stores and so much more. Such fun over the holidays to people watch!! It truly is a fabulous way to spend some time

Nothing special about this one. Same as all the other millions of malls across America. Same boring shops, same boring restaurants. Except they have a Din Tai Fung, which is suppose to be some amazing Chinese dim sum, but I think it's just expensive average dim sum.

Really the only one stop shopping center in So Cal ranging from most basic to most extravagant brands. This mall has been open for 20-25yrs so it's not going to feel brand new and some places even feel like the 80's but it's the best place to you for shopping in So Cal.

Most beautiful and super clean shopping plaza in the United States. All big names are here, too many too list. Bring your check book, you will need it. You can spend all day window shopping. Ideal place to be when it rains outside (unfortunately it is located in Southern California where it almost never rain). Christmas decorations are awesome, and... More

We arrived about 1 pm and the parking lots were more than 80% full, which indicated the popularity of the mall. In Nordstrom's, two dozen shoppers were trying on shoes. This was the busiest part of the store. In other stores, there were lots of browsers, but fewer people actually making purchases. Still, about half of the shoppers wandering the... More

It's bright and airy and so many things... More

This is the biggest shopping mall on the West Coast. Beautiful, well kept, cozy. Top brands, some great restaurants, kids entertainment. No need to waste 2,5 hours to get to Rodeo Drive. It's only 10 min walk from my house. Love going there with my family. Although it's quite overpriced, there is always something you bring home from there. Very... More

Plan on spending plenty of time here, you can shop and dine a plenty. Located just across the freeway via a pedestrian bridge and close to our our preferred hotel in the area, the Westin South Coast Plaza. Choose from luxury brands or stores less pricey. dining choices abound, again in all categories and price ranges. You can easily spend... More
