South Coast Plaza

Mall in Costa Mesa

The stats at SoCal's premier luxury shopping destination speak for themselves: About $2 billion in annual sales, over 250 boutiques, 30 restaurants, five department stores, three valet stations and 10,000 parking spaces. It's been in business for over half a century (since 1967), yet it still feels current. Grab a map from one of four concierge desks.

It's the place to go if your tastes run toward major international fashion houses and retailers like Bottega Veneta, Cartier, Coach, Gucci, Hermès, Uniqlo or Van Cleef & Arpels.
