Shopping in LA is crazy, since there are so many shopping districts!
If you haven't, check out my Los Angeles Food post here.
Los Angeles shops seem to have more variety of clothes and designs to choose from.
For example, Victoria Secret. They had LA version clothing and more colors available! Or, Cotton On where they have bigger shop with cuter outfits!
Los Angeles also has a certain large district to shop. The shopping districts I went were Promenade, Rodeo Drive, The Grove, & Beverly Center.
Third Street Promenade is like 20min from Santa Monica beach! Below map photos are what they have in this place, and the video is right before I was leaving from Santa Monica Beach!
Promenade is literally crazy! Shopping district and a lot of restaurants and cafe!
From casual shops to branded ones, you can spend hours here to chill! At night this place is so pretty too, since everything lights up!
2. Rodeo Drive
Rodeo Drive is basically shopping street & restaurants all over! They have some high-end brands to shop at, as well as affordable ones. This area in Hollywood is a go-to place if you love shopping & eating. Around there's the Beverly Gardens Park. This park doesn't really have anything rather than decorated with few art pieces and has a beverly hills sign where everyone takes pictures at. It was so different from what I was expecting. Honestly, unless you want to just walk around streets, I think you can skip this place. Below video is the one where I took of the palm trees because they looked nice. We walked around the neighborhood with nice houses thinking we might see any celebrities (hahaha) n ice cream store in the middle called Ice Cream Lab. It's an ice cream store that makes ice cream from liquid nitrogen. Below video is taken around the Rodeo Drive.
3. The Grove
The Grove is another great outlet where it's similar to Promenade (structure wise). They also offer a free short bus ride from the entrance of the outlet to the far back! It's definitely fun & convenient because sometimes, after a long day of walking, you just want to sit down and look around. I sat on the second floor of the bus, and the weather was awesome! Not the best photo, but the view was definitely great. A lot of places to shop and eat. I remember they had 3 ice cream/smoothie shops at the far back. I didn't try it since I was full, but I definitely want to try all of them next time I visit LA. They also had fountain which was great at night to see.
4. Beverly Center
Last but not least, Beverly Center is a premier shopping mall in LA like The Galleria in Houston. The exterior & some part of interior seems to be still in construction, but they operate normally. They also have a parking garage! This shopping center is located between The Grove and Rodeo Drive. I think their interior structure is a bit difficult to look around. While they have a lot of stores, between hallways, the escalators are located in weird areas and finding their bathroom is like a maze! Other than that I think it's okay, but you should go to the top 3 first!
So guys, that's a wrap!
These were the 4 shopping districts I went & though I don't have a lot of photos, I think it's the largest places you can shop around as well as eat. These are all around each other so I think it's not too bad either!
