A Day of Shopping at The Grove

Jul 19, 2009 by Lisa Newton

Not too long ago, the areas around The Grove, were run-down older apartment buildings, motels, and the hither and yearn of urban decay– so typical of inner-city life and living. Then something changed—the private sector stepped in to improve the quality of people’s lives, and of course to make money.

For shopping, dining and simply loving life, The Grove is your ultimate entertainment destination. From your favorite boutiques and restaurants to choreographed fountains, you’ll enjoy an experience like no other in Los Angeles. Why not head to The Grove?

With its quaint streets, building facades, and various points of interest, shopping at The Grove is an experience—you can go from zero to hero in only a few minutes—to finding that perfect summer dress, wedding gift, or some furniture for your apartment or house–The Grove has it all.

Of course, you’re welcome to stop by for a quick shopping trip–but the best way to really enjoy The Grove is to spend the day, casually strolling past the choreographed fountains,

or the life-like statues. It’s family friendly. This little boy’s antics were cute as he played with the various water fountains.

Look Mom, water!!

Of course, if you spend the day, you’ll want to know which shops you’ll find there. The list is impressive, including: Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, Forever 21, Pacific Sunwear, Victoria Secret, and J. Crew, to name just a few.

What’s a day shopping with friends without enjoying lunch out? Be prepared to enjoy yourself at Wood Ranch BBQ & Grill or Maggiano’s Little Italy or maybe The Farm of Beverly Hills. Of course, these are just three of the many restaurants, food outlets, and café’s at The Grove.

At the end of the day, if you’d like to visit the neighboring Farmers Market, just hop on the electric powered trolley whose tracks meander between the two locations.

If you visit The Grove–until August 28–Subaru is sponsoring free Movies in the Park,” featuring all time favorite movies “Under the Stars.”

Call me a hopeless romantic—but an evening under the stars viewing classic movies sounds so dreamy. I can’t ’t wait to see the movies. Staycations when Travelin’ Local just doesn’t get any better. At least until I find the next “in” spot!

    I love shopping. Now I rarely buy anything from national chain stores, but I still enjoy the process of walking, browsing and window shopping – especially at “outdoor malls”.

    @carla, When our kids were younger, my sisters and I used to get together quite often. We’d almost always go shopping, buying a few items, but doing a lot of people watching.

    Here in SoCal, it’s great to sit outside, enjoy the fresh air, and people watch. :)

    Hi Lisa. With no word of a lie, this is the third blog post I’ve read in the last hour or so, that has mentioned “staycations”. And until now, I had never heard that word before.

    Maybe there is a message there for me huh? I could see myself spending a carefree day here for sure. From the photos I pick up that this place has a great ambiance.

    @Davina, Due to the economics situation, many people are taking vacation closer to home, so I’m not surprised you’re seeing more and more “staycations.”

    Here in LA, I can have a staycation any day of the week. :)

    I love taking staycations or daycations as we call them in San Francisco. There is so much to do and see here.

    However after taking a look at your page it looks like we will have to venture down south and take a look around the “Grove”.

    Thanks for sharing.
