I love The Grove. It's a lovely outdoor shopping mall that's designed to feel like you're walking a cobblestoned plaza of shops and restaurants in Europe. In numbers, the shops are fewer than other large malls. But Nordstrom is here, and that goes a long way for me!
I like that you can spend a leisurely day at The Grove. The Farmer's Market connected to The Grove is always a great stop. And if you're not in the mood for that, sit down on one of the restaurants (my favorite here is The Farm). Sit outside for the best people watching. Morel's is also excellent for people-watching and grabbing drinks.
Tip: If you spend >$200 altogether at The Grove, parking fee will be waived!

Am I the only one who has been robbed here at The Grove's parking garage??? Or are those reviews taken out by the moderator? My very first trip to Los Angeles, CA AND MY LAST! I was looking forward to enjoying the warm weather and some of the sites, mainly here to go on The Price is Right, whose site tells you to park at The Grove. My chances would have been better in an alley somewhere. I know crime happens everywhere, but I still find it very hard to fathom how such an "upscale" garage and property with cameras everywhere failed to catch and detain the thief. This isn't just any robbery, the bag with my cell phones (only communication to back home and only wi-fi I had, along with precious memories of my children stored on them, MY VITAL MEDICATION (high blood pressure, antidepressants, anxiety, and ADHD treatment- ALL GONE). I had to go almost a week without medicine that I MUST TAKE every day, and in such a situation that would drive the most calm person insane with anxiety and frustration. Of course my health insurance card, children's social security cards, debit cards (not like I could call right away to report them as phone was stolen), among other personal and precious items. Garage security was able to see me when I approached the car, and even left a note on my car about the damages, yet they couldn't get the criminal? They even told me they had his face on surveillance and the whole act recorded...then WTF? To top it off, I waited for police that they said were coming, and back and forth from concierge to the scene of the crime saw the police there, but they were helping this lady who (after my incident), was walking and proceeded to drive drunk (we all watched her hit the car next to her), and she starts crying (like I wasn't and I was a victim) AND LAPD let her go!! They even called her friend to pick her up! Then, seeing that police were leaving, I asked them what about my report, and the officer replied "oh, you have to go to the station to file a report". Then, once at the Wilshire station, a very nonchalant officer grudgingly took the report and wouldn't let me make ONE PHONE CALL because it was long distance! Well, that was my home. I wish I had never come to this God-forsaken city, not only that but when I saw what happened to my car I pleaded, crying to a passer by to please use his cell phone. He said he didn't have one and quickly walked away. Without my medication, I fell sick, dizzy with a horrible headache, swollen from the blood pressure, exhausted and eventually into a nervous breakdown. I ended up in an ER at an LA hospital that I can't say much for. Without my ID they presumed I was homeless (even though I showed them the police report). The airline agreed to delay my flight. I COULD NOT WAIT TO GET HOME. Extremely bad, everlasting first and last impression of LA. I am glad to be back to the Northeast U.S. where it is nice and safe- that's right, I said it. After that life changing ordeal (still recovering, sleep paralysis and nightmares), I conclude I would have felt safer in a war zone. HORRIBLE AND NEVER EVER AGAIN!

I've seen the Backstreet Boys here twice, for free. During the winter holidays, snow is dispersed in the air. The shopping center has the places I frequently go to, including The Gap, Barnes & Noble, and the Apple Store. The atmosphere is very upscale and comfortable.
