Twenty years ago my wife and I would get a casual dinner and People watch. Then we'd walk the mall enjoying a few stores and window shop. Now with virtually every story the caliber of Tiffany, Chanel, and Gucci, its not much fun to walk into a store with an armed guard. You need to be from a foreign country... More

Upscale mall with Flagship stores and restaurants that can only be compared to 5th Avenue in Manhattan.

A very busy jewelry shop, but I was disappointed with one of the customer rep, giving directions to the customer is very important and she didn't give a good directing. If you want to help a customer you have to go with the customer.

This mall has it all... and by all I mean everything from the top of the line fashion forward stores to the surrounding perfectly easy to access more affordable stores for the past fashion hunter in us. Dining on the same scale from top of the top to fast food-ish like eateries.

First time we had been here. Plenty of high-end stores Chanel, Dior, D & G, Gucci, Harry Winston, Tiffany, and Versace, along with a few average priced stores, Coach, Macy's, Victoria's Secret, XXI Forever. There are also a few restaurants located within the mall complex. Plenty of free parking, or you can utilize a valet. Security frequently patrols the parking... More

This is a beautiful shopping mall, with some great food outlets and all levels of shopping. There is even a crosswalk to the other side of the road where you can easily access the discount stores for Nordstroms and Saks.

This is a very nice shopping center in central Orange County, California. It is upscale with many fine shops and dining. Sears is the original anchor store but you will also find Channel, Fendi, Gucci, and Tiffany's. It is a great place to people watch; you will see people from around the world shopping.

We were in LA and had heard a lot about this place being one of the best places to shop. Being an avid shopper, I knew that I had to go to this place. Firstly, there's no definitive place to start from. This place is just filled with shops. It can be a daunting task for some people to get... More
