Feel good place.
The Grove is the 5th most beautiful shopping center in the world, I just can't imagine what the first four look like. The Grove has a very pleasant atmosphere, relaxing, happy, friendly, and inviting. The Cheese Factory has the best food, the Farmer Market is adorable, Nordstrom is as good as it comes, and there's always live entertainment, and the weather is always great at the Grove..... must see, at night it's beautiful. P.S. the weekend are packed.
this place is great.
I've come here a few times and really love walking around. especially the outdoor market. at night everything is lit up and looks like a wonderland. very cool to stroll around with a coffee and watch people. you should also go at night to the top level of the parking structure - the view is amazing!
So nice to stroll here.
I recently took a business trip to LA and was told that if I had some time, I should have a look at the Grove. London eat your heart out! Beautiful shops and such a great atmosphere and not an umbrella in sight! Yes, a few shopping bags made their way back to my hotel room too!
The Grove is a great outdoor mall. We love going there when my family is visiting us from Europe, especially around christmas time. The stores and streets are nicely decorated, the huge Christmas tree is gorgeous and the lights, Santa Claus and the snow just make the experience even better for young kids!
They have a great selection of stores (Banana Republic, Pottery Barn Kids, Apple Store, Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom, Sur La Table, Gap, Lucky Brand, Abercrombie & Fitch, Barneys CO-OP...) and restaurants we like to go to (Wood Ranch Grill, Maggiano's, Morels Bistro).
The trolley and fountain are also a big hit with my 4 year old son.
It does get crowded especially during the weekends but the parking garage is huge and tells you how many spots are left on each floor. With the Loyalty Reward Program you get complimentary valet parking for the day when you spend $250 during one visit.
Great bonus: it's right next to the popular LA Farmer's Market!
