Fashion Island - Things to Do in Orange County 5

The Best Open Air Mall in Orange County - Fashion Island

Amongst some of the most expensive pieces of real estate in the United States, there is an open air mall called Fashion Island in the city of Newport Beach. The mall is one of the most beautiful open air malls around and it's great to just walk around to window shop here. Along with their glamour shops, Fashion Island also have very nice gardens and flowers to make your shopping experience simply wonderful!

Since the mall is located inside one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the United States, you will find many high end retail stores here. Example: Bloomingdales. You'd be surprised to see that there's no GAP inside the mall. And they don't have Banana Republic either.

Some of my personal favorites to shop are, Bath & Body Works for all my bathroom goodies, Forever 21 for trendy but very reasonably priced clothes, and Anthropologie for inspiring home decor and accessories. There's also a pet shop here where you can pet puppies and watch the kittens nap. And when you get tired of walking, there is a movie theater for you to catch the latest flicks or a Barnes and Noble to pick up a copy of the lastest novel by Stephen King.

For dining, there is a big food court or you can dine in one of several prestigious restaurants available. There's a McDonald's and a Wahoo's next to the movie theater, along with the Cheescake Factory, Red Robin, and California Pizza Kitchen here too. The Sunday Brunch at El Torito is one of the best in town as well.

And finally, Christmas is one of the most special time here where you will be able to see one of the highest Christmas tree in Southern California here. Its an amazing specticle, and I will be posting an article later just about the tree!

All in all, this is the best open air shopping malls in Orange County!
