A lovely place to walk around but unfortunately didn't offer too much. The stores are mostly typical chains you can find in almost every single malls. The restaurants didn't seem too interesting either. Having said that, I still enjoy strolling around, especially at night. It is pretty and romantic.
I was told the farmers' market is excellent. Too bad I missed it. Next time. For sure.

It's a great outdoor shopping mall, but I personally find it more exciting for Mario Lopez's Extra! show taping. Passerby can be part of the show - just join the gathering crowd before a segment starts taping (or during, but you'll be at the very back) and get up close with the celebrity guests. I was 5 feet from Hilary Duff, and got to interview Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi guitarist) for the show! They'll always pick a handful of people in the crowd to ask the celebs questions, so definitely try to be a part of this. It's an unforgettable experience!

This is maybe one of my least favorite places in LA. I'm not into shopping or overpaying for parking and that's all there is to do here! There are better places to go in LA to shop and catch a movie. That being said - if you came to LA to shop then this is the 2nd shopping center I would recommend.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

The Grove is a modern,outdoor mall that is fun and trendy!
There are a host of restaurants and popular stores.
There is a cable car that will take you all over the mall.
It is connected to the very famous Farmer's Market and a great way to spend the afternoon.

The Grove is a beautiful outdoor shopping center in LA that's great for window shopping and people watching. If you're there during a taping of Extra, you'll definitely see a few celebrities. You can also join in as part of the crowd that gets on TV.

The Grove is a large outdoor mall, offering shops, restaurants and a 14-screen movie theater. It features a large center park with an animated fountain designed by WET. Its music-fountain show plays every hour, though the feature has a non-musical program in between shows. An internal transit system uses electric-powered trolley cars to link The Grove and the adjacent Farmers Market. During the Christmas shopping season, fake snow is produced periodically during the night. The Grove’s many restaurants include chains like Maggiano’s Little Italy and The Cheesecake Factory as well as smaller, local restaurants like Wood Ranch BBQ and Grill, Morels French Steakhouse, The Farm of Beverly Hills, and La Piazza.
