South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa - I had heard about it many times but had never seen it before , but when I finally did, it was worth the wait. It ' s architecture is really surprising the way it has such a strong design element in its building. Over 250 stores make it very comfortable and a pedestrian bridge make this a shoppers dream. People of all ages, some of them busy window shopping and some of them at the restaurants. Like all shopping destinations it gets crowded during holidays and on weekends but if you are going shopping, this is a nice place to spend the day.
