This is a huge and diversified mall. Most of the luxury and popular brands are there so you need some time to make a complete visit. There are also a number of good restaurants there. Parking is not a problem.

You can easily spend a couple of hours cruising this giant indoor mall. Beautifully decorated with all the latest high end fashion stores. Beware though this is not a mall for the bargain hunters. Definitely worth a look as it is the OC's "Rodeo Dr".

Went here especially to eat at Ruby's diner, that have the best milkshakes. The shopping centre is vast with a huge choice of shopping from high end stores to chains. Usually lots of events held with the centre. Staff see's candies were the best!

Fortunately the many security staff are visible and very helpful. One even helped me find where I parked my car since it has several parking structures. So, note down where you parked... More

Find everything from Cartier and Gucci down to Gap and Old Navy and everything in between. Great restaurants too and upscale home stores such as West Elm, Pottery Barn and Crate&Barrel in an annex building.

Let's start at the very beginning. Thank you Segerstrom family, for donating the land to construct this wonderful shopping center. It all began with the anchor stores, Sears and May Co. And, even a two level Woolworth's. At present, there are the exact upscale designer shops that grace Rodeo Drive! And - Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Victoria's Secret, See's, Tiffany, just to... More
