If you live in Orange County or ever make a visit, you must make a stop at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, California. This mall literally has it ALL. Luxury and high end shops, affordable shops, locally owned shops, delicious restaurants, a carousel, and beautiful scenery around every corner. 250 shops and 30 restaurants to be exact, with easy to read maps on every corner just in case you get lost haha! South Coast Plaza is a true gem and by far one of my favorite malls. I especially love it during the holidays though!!
5 Reasons To Shop At South Coast Plaza During The Holidays:
1.Santa’s Village: This is the most legit Santa setup I’ve ever seen! Twinkling lights, and white snow around every corner. South Coast has this setup in two locations, Carousel Court and The Macy’s Home Store Wing.
2. Craft Station: Also at Santa’s Village are a variety of imaginative craft activities. They have the stations open until December 24th. This is PERFECT for the kids while you wait in line for Santa.
3. Custom Gift Wrapping: With 5 locations across the mall, you get gifts you just bought wrapped by professionals! This is seriously amazing for a busy mom like myself!
4. Holiday Shopping Services: You can visit any concierge station for assistance with any of the following: Gift Certificate purchases, complimentary package check, stroller and wheelchair rental, taxi and limousine service, restaurant and hotel reservations. SCP also offers a VIP Passport with exclusive offers for travels! The Concierge also sells tickets to Segerstrom Center for the Arts and Disneyland.
5. Santa’s Express Train: Perfect for the children, South Coast Plaza offers $1 train rides for children under 50′ tall and weighing less than 70lbs. Jackson loves riding this train!! You can also get a complimentary ride with any Santa photo purchase.
South Coast Plaza is a great time for the entire family all year round, but make sure you pop in this season to see all of the amazingness for yourself!! Thanks for stopping by!
