People like to share info about some of the noteworthy places they’ve been—and SoCal Shopping Place is here to share some of the most unique places to shop in Southern California, both for residents and tourists alike. Regular malls are not typically discussed here, but anything from outdoor malls to marketplaces to “special” malls (e.g., South Coast Plaza) are included. We’re starting with Orange County but will expand as time goes on.

And especially in this economy, you don’t necessarily have to go around spending a lot of money to follow SoCal Shopping Place—even window shopping can be fun. And if you’re a chocoholic, you can also find out where to get your chocolate fix while out on your shopping trip. It’s all about sharing the shopping and other fun experiences at these great places!
