Fun to walk around

My wife and I enjoy walking around South Coast Plaza..... Park out by Sears for easy access to and from the mall. We always get an Icecream!

It is a higher end mall with expensive brand name stores (Channel, LV, Burberry, etc), but also middle-market chain stores. It has a great selection of restaurants and valet parking. You can spend a lot of money shopping or just have a cup of coffee if you just want to walk around a bit. The Christmas decorations are really nice.... More

Last visited SCP in August 2015. A number of the stores from when I was there in 2010 were no longer there. This isn't surprising since there is constantly new openings in such a nice retail location. About a 15 minute drive from Disney Resort area. We usually spend a day here and then go for dinner at Main Place... More

We had a brief visit to this mall during our recent trip to Orange County. Our family enjoyed this upscale mall with many good restaurants. We enjoyed lunch in zCafe at the other side of the mall which is connected by the beautiful walk bridge.

When visiting or just shopping the the Newport Beach area be sure to visit the Southcoast Plaza. It has everything!! Fine clothes, really good food selections, great miscellaneous items and an overall feeling of ambiance. A greater variety of goods, services and eating choices would be hard to find. And I have seen examples of this mall in five times... More

What's great about the massive mall is there's something for everyone, from middle-market chain stores like Gap and Macy's to ultra high-end like Hermes and Loro Piana. Has one of only 4 John Lobb shoe stores in the US. Name the super high-end brand and odds are they're here. Comparable in that respect to some of the luxury malls around... More

Fantastic selection of shops . Valet parking . Great restaurants are just around almost every corner. The mall has its own exit off the freeway to whisk you right in quickly. One of the better malls on Southern California .

South Coast Plaza (SCP) has been around a long time - first built in the early 70's and has grown and upgraded over the years. It's a very class place - lovely places for dining or coffee, designer shops, specialty shops and something for everyone. It's adjacent to Crystal Court - across an overpass which also is lovely so you... More

Enjoyed our visit (3 adults, 2 older teens), but be aware that most of the mall is quite high-end shops. If that is your thing, you will love this shopping centre. Anchored by Macys, Nordstrom, etc it has most of the typical mall stores (H&M, Gap, Uniqlo, etc) but also shops like John Lobb, Louis Vitton, Valentino, many others. More... More
