"South Coast Plaza"
The South Coast Plaza is a high end haven for some of Orange County’s trendiest natives. The range of affordability spans across the scale from affordable to down-right outrageous, but then again I guess that scale is tentative to what every consumer would consider “affordable” and “outrageous”. From Bloomingdales to Macy’s, H&M clothing store to Nordstrom’s, the Disney Store to Dolce & Gabbana, to Gucci and the GAP the South Coast Plaza can be an overwhelming place to tackle in one day. I remember the first time I visited there I felt lost in the grand scheme of what seemed like infinite store fronts. Since I tend to stay on the frugal side of the spending wheel I enjoyed the South Coast Plaza more for a window shopping experience but would not knock anyone who had the money to spend and decided to spend it there. But if the prices become to overzealous don’t fret. There are so many other options near Bristol St. and the 55 frwy where South Coast is located. There is the Crystal Court Shopping Center on Bear St. just behind the mega mall, The Bristol Place Shopping Center about a block away as well as the Bristol Center Shopping Center across the street. Now that’s a whole lot of shopping and centers to choose from.
