Things to Do in Orange County: Visit the South Coast Plaza

Are you looking for an area where you can do a little bit of everything? Maybe, you’re looking for a one-stop-shop where you can shop, eat, have some casual rides for the kids, and hang out? If that’s the case, then the South Coast Plaza in Orange County is your answer. 

The South Coast Plaza is one of the premier malls in the area. You need to visit this location at least once should you find yourself in Orange County. The high-quality items, food, and numerous things to do here are too high to pass up on if you have the chance.

The Food

There are different types of food available to you should you venture within the mall. If you’re just looking for a quick bite to eat, then locations like Philz coffee or Dripp offer light snacks. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a restaurant that can give you affordable, more supplemental food, then Terrace or Ruby’s Diner will be the places for you. However, If you’re looking for quality dining food and experience, then keep an eye out for Darya Fine Persian Cuisine or Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge. You can still choose from other options, so keep an open eye when thinking of where and what you can eat here.

Kids Section 

If you’re looking for some entertainment for your kids, then you most definitely want to bring them to the carousel court and the area surrounding it. Besides having your kids ride on the now open carousel, you can also take them to the nearby puzzle zoo, Lego and/or Disney section. There is even a Baby Gap shop in case you need some new clothes for them. 

Other Locations

If you’re uninterested in any of the activities mentioned above, then perhaps you may want a taste of the dramatic and theatrical performances. Within the South Coast Plaza are multiple locations where you can witness indoor and outdoor performances. One such example of an indoor Theatre would be the Segerstorm Center of the Arts and the South Coast Repository, serving as an outdoor theatre production area. There is even the OCMAEXPAND Santa Ana supporting the display for the Orange County Museum of Art. There is also a sculpture garden designed by artist Isamu Noguchi adding flair and beauty to the area. If you’re a big fan of the arts, you’ll find plenty within the plaza. 


When it comes to having fun, seeing fine arts, getting high-quality clothes and products, or just getting a bite to eat all in one, South Coast Plaza is the place to go. You’re going to feel spoiled with the number of things to do here, so take advantage of it as soon as you are able to go to Orange County.
