Best Shopping In LA

Thu Jul 17, 2008 9:43 am

Is there a large outlet mall in or around LA (easily accessible) that is like the Sawgrass Mills near FLL?

By that I mean many shops and great discounts  Smile

We went to a few when i was over there the easiest to get to would be the Citadel Outlet Shopping Centre, had a good range of shops as well. You can get there easily on the I-710 and the I-5.

Guess it depends on where your staying as well.

You should stop into the Fashion District downtown - a lot of steep discounts available if you are patient, have an eye for detail, and speak a little Farsi  Wink

The Citadel Shopping Center in Commerce is the only outlet mall in L.A. located on Telegraph Rd ( parallels the I-5 freeway ) just east of Atlantic Blvd. Exit Atlantic Bvd/Telegraph Rd from the 5 freeway and turn right ( going south ) on Telegraph and its gonna be before Garfield.

Its like a nice outlet mall n everything, but i strongly recommend The Ontario Mills Outlet Mall ( north of KONT ), north at the 10 freeway and Milliken Ave.

happy shopping

If you're looking for a green card or a Social Security number go to MacArthur Park.

Ontario Mills is very much like Sawgrass Mills.

You can find a list of their stores here:

They also have a 58-screen theater.

The Citadel is ok, but the larger outlets are in farther flung suburbs. One good choice that is accessible by fairly frequent train service, as we know you don't have a car, is the Camarillo Premium Outlets in Camarillo. A good combination of normal brands and high end outlets like Armani and Coach.

http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp?id=20

From your hotel in Century City, you would take a bus to L.A. Union Station, then a Metrolink or Amtrak train to Camarillo. From the Camarillo station, you can either take a long walk or one of the on demand taxi services.

If you were after quite high end shopping or just wanted to go for a look you have the Beverly Centre in Beverly hills, saw a couple of celebs shopping pretty easy to tell when you have the paparazzi following!

You could also try the South Coast Plaza, full of high end stores.

Theres some great malls and to be honest, outlet shops generally arent too much cheaper than normal stores anyway.

I think I will try this one as this is accessible by bus and metro as I don't have a car  Sad

I agree. the farther u travel, the better stores. The Citadel is close to Downtown and easily accessible than Camarillo or Ontario . The citadel is easily accessible by taking MTA Bus 62 from Downtown LA ...takes u str8 there.

Ontario Mills is accessible by taking the Metrolink San Bndo Line from LA Union Station. Exit at Rancho Cucamonga Station and take the OmniTrans 82 bus over. Your Metrolink ticket can be use as a transfer to OmniTrans.

The VISTA Bus ( Hwy 101/Conejo Route ) takes u straight there from Camarillo Station

3rd Street is great, and it is close to where the OP is staying, but it isn't an outlet center.

I love the 3rd Street Promenade, the Farmers market etc.. The favorite hotel of my Wife and I is near there, Le Merigot.

Not really a fan. Much better food can be found in this city and the stalls there are overpriced.
