This place has a little something for everyone. Sitting a block from the CBS and neighbors with the famed Farmers Market you can enjoy lovely eateries and shops, a dancing fountain, a trolley and a prime movie theater. Want the open market experience ? Visit farmers market which has a little bit of everything from produce to bakeries, teas and... More

This is a lovely place to wander, shop or go to the cinema. Situated right next to the farmers market, it has the usual large stores like Abercrombie & forever 21 & small stalls. There's a cable car that runs through it in the day (as a tourist attraction) & at night a lovely fountain display. It"s all pedestrian &... More

A beautiful setting--fountains, lights, gorgeous buildings--but does not conceal the fact that these are the same chain stores that you find everywhere. The lavish setting makes it a great place for an evening walk.

I really enjoyed visiting The Grove, great range of shops and restaurants. Not big enough to spend a full day but great for a half day or a few hours. We went for 2 hours one afternoon mid week in July and was absolutely buzzing down there - such a great vibe!

We had guests from out of state and found this a terrific afternoon spent. Multi-cultural experience, we could over hear conversations in many different languages. Inside the Farmer's market there are many small unique businesses within the larger corporate mall surrounding it. Beautiful surroundings on a fantastic summer day! Parking is expensive but plentiful in their well organized multi level... More

We found this one of the nicer stops as we toured around the Hop On Hop Off Bus. We were surprised. A nice variety of shops. A novel tram to ride down the main street. A beautiful lake/fountain with beautiful goldfish. Our kids loved it here. Some good shops like Forever 21 & American Girl. A nice atmosphere & right... More

This is just another mall. Don't waste your time. Same stores found at any other. LA has so much more to offer. If you do need to get some shopping done, this place is way too crowded to be an option. Literally tour bus loads of people are being brought here.

We visited The Grove in December. It is a beautiful outdoor mall and was decorated beautifully for Christmas. My husband and i are from Sydney and it is exactly what we imagined as US mall to be like. There is not a huge amount of shopping to do there but we had fun strolling around. They had carollers singing in... More

If you're looking for a day out clothes shipping and coming home with many different purchases from many different shops then the grove is not for you, there's a total of five major outlets, three of which cater for men, there are other outlets for men but they are highly priced and anyone traveling money smart wouldn't waste their time....
