Our favorite mall to take the kids to is Fashion Island! We love to sit in front of Nordstrom and listen to live music! They usually have this on the weekends and there is great people watching and lots of places to sit down with plenty of room for the kids to dance and be free!
Then there is the magical ocean fountain! It is so soothing and really does sound and smell like the fresh ocean waves! They can literally spend hours at this ocean fountain alone! Better yet.. if its nap time, just put them in the stroller and stand next to this fountain!
They also love the koi fish pond and it’s always full of kids to play with! It is conveniently located by the food court and bathrooms and has the best chairs to relax and watch them play for us mamas!
One of my favorite places to eat is Hop Doddy because the food is so good and it’s also really fast so it’s perfect to bring the kids in! Plus they have a great bar with delicious cocktails (wink wink)
If you are looking for treats they have amazing ice cream in the food court and they also have treats all over the mall (pink berry being my fav)
If i’m feeling extra generous i will take them in Barns and Noble and although i say you can pick out a new book, this place is actually a giant toy store in disguise! I never.. ever leave with a book lol.
