We love this mall. It has such a huge range of stores here, there is very little that you can't get here. We do miss a grocery store and a pharmacy, they would make it a perfect shopping mall but malls in the USA don't seem to have grocery stores at them like they do in Australia.

This mall has a shuttle bus that leaves from hotels in the Anaheim area. It's a great shuttle and we used it a couple of times when we visited this mall. We had a coupon for 50% off so it was only $5 return! Kids under 17 are free which was great. So really a very economical way to get to the mall and to do some shopping.

Another service we absolutely loved and used both time we went to this mall was there is a bag check at the concierge desk. So as we were shopping we were able to leave our shopping bags there so did not have to carry our heavy packages all day.

We loved that it has very high end stores to reasonably prices stores. Really something for everyone. Including hair salons, which was very handy as my son needed a hair cut and we could do that when we were there too. There are also some good dining options too for lunch and dinner which we enjoyed.

They say it's the biggest Mall in US. I don't know if it's only marketing or not,but fr sure it's a very good place for high level shopping. Top Brands in a luxury enviroment. You can find really the best. I'm a watch collector and it was a pleasure to visit flagship store of top Brands and multibrand top quality stores. Same experience if you're a fan of fashion, shoes, accessories, etc. Don't go there if you don't want your credit card suffer too much!!!

This mall is one of my favorites in the country. Great opportunity for shopping for almost everything. Big names, boutiques and speciality stores. I tried to find something that wasn't included in this shopping area. Beautifully appointed which makes it a joy to shop. If you need some escape from the rain or just an opportunity to shop. This is one of the finest malls in America!

Plenty of bargain shops like Nordstrom Rack and DSW as well as all the luxury brands and big department stores.

What I like about SCP is just how diverse it is. You see shoppers with their Forever 21 bags to those carrying fancy bags from Burberry. It's a great way to pass a few hours. For me, however, the best places to visit are the restaurants that offer happy hour or the See's Candy Store! On a hot, summer day, SCP is a fantastic place to escape the heat...unless your pocketbook is on fire.
