Only a short ride away from the heart of the Anaheim Resort® District on Line 22 is South Coast Plaza, the largest mall on the West Coast! With a variety of shopping options, from household favorites such as Bath & Body Works, the Apple Store, and Sears, to high-end shopping destinations such as Cartier, Luis Vuitton, and Mui Mui, all alongside over 40 delicious eateries, it has become a major destination in the OC area. During the holiday season, South Coast Plaza transforms into a winter wonderland perfect for gift-buying and spending time with loved ones. Here are just a few of the magical things you don’t want to miss this Christmas at South Coast Plaza.
1) The rides
Kids will be delighted by a ride on the miniature train track Santa’s Express and the special holiday-themed additions to the carousel. If you’re lucky, Santa might even stop by and wave to you as you ride one of his reindeer!
2) The trees
South Coast Plaza has several large, festive trees! The first often has live musicians underneath it, while the second is surrounded by Santa’s Express on the second floor. Both are multiple stories high and decorated to perfection; they’re sure to inspire some holiday cheer!
3) Santa’s Village
Meet the man of the hour himself and pose for some family photos surrounded by a beautiful winter scene of snowy trees and houses! The “elves” here are very friendly, and there’s nothing that makes a child’s Christmas season more special than getting to meet Santa and tell him what’s on their Christmas list!
