Is your credit card burning for a little exercise? Are you looking for the latest in fashion or a timepiece that goes by one word, Rolex? The answer is simple, you are looking for South Coast Plaza, an international shopping destination located in Costa Mesa, California. When the world wants to shop they come here. There are over 250 boutiques, 30 restaurants and the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. It is not a shopping mall it is a shopping destination and experience.

As the largest shopping center on the West Coast, it should come as no surprise that the list of shopping amenities available are impressive. Everything from Valet parking, currency exchange, concierge staff that speak a myriad of languages, and a VIP Access lounge located next to Sak’s Fith Avenue where you can sip a glass of champagne as you plan out your shopping adventure.

To try to explain how impressive and amazing South Coast Plaza is in words is a bit of a challenge. So, I put together a little video showing just a fraction of what I experienced during my adventures there.

What I wasn’t able to show you in the video was the variety of stores available. I may not be able to afford to shop at Dolce & Gabbana or Louis Vuitton, but I was able to visit the Apple Store and J Crew to pick up a few things. You don’t need to be a millionaire to shop at South Coast Plaza, but it certainly would be nice!

If you are from out of town make sure you download the South Coast Plaza VIP Passport. Present it to any of the Concierge stations and receive some great promotions and coupons for use at the 250 boutiques and 30 restaurants in South Coast Plaza. You’re not a true shopper unless you can get a good deal for what you are buying.

Happy shopping!
