Sprawling mall brings a patch of suburbia to the beach.. In Short Manhattan Village is indistinguishable from countless suburban shopping malls across America, but the atmosphere inside it reflects the beach community it serves. The tourist quotient is quite low, and the vast majority of shoppers are locals-including a few celebrities. Ninety stores and restaurants make up this mall, with one department store (Macy's) anchoring it all. Expect the usual chain stores (Gap, Bath & Body Works, Express) in addition to local establishments like Manhattan Village Florist.
This mall has like 5 stores in it. It seems kinda cool--they have a Sephora and a Harry n David (stop by for free samples if youre bored) and other nice stores that aren't in the area or at Del Amo. But its sooo small that it is just not worth the trip. They don't even have a bookstore in here. Even the shop keepers are bored ill.
If youve driven this far, you may as well go to the Galleria or for some real good shopping, 3rd street.
