Best shopping in California, upscale mall, beautiful restaurants and people watching, we always stop off for an Italian coffee and people watch. Great stores, easy parking, allow a full day.

“A Shopaholic's Pilgrimage Destination”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

A massive, trendy, upscale mall with all of the top stores. The range of stores comes with a range of prices but this is for those looking for quality and service as opposed to deal shoppers. With this said, many stores have some great advanced sales and promotions. Deals might not be easy to come by but when found, they are worthwhile.

There are plenty of great restaurants of all price ranges as well. If you are looking for one store or for one day of shopping, this is the place to be.

Caveats:
1) It is a very large and busy mall. If you are in a time crunch, this could be a challenge.
2)The parking lots surround the mall with plenty of narrow slots - heard of many people getting dings and scrapes on their cars when they come back from shopping. If you value your car, place it in a far spot and content yourself on your walk back with a your smart choice.

Enjoy and try to stay out of debt! ;)
