No trip to southern California is complete without a stop at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. Here you’ll find the best in shopping, dining, special events and a once-in-a-lifetime cinematic experience! In November, Santa’s House opens on the 13th and of course the Black Friday sales can’t be missed. However, when it comes to planning your day at Fashion Island, it pays (literally, in savings!) to be prepared.
Start by booking your very own personal shopper so you can streamline the shopping process. Let him or her know the celeb styles you love, personal preferences, and if you want them to focus on certain shops like Anthropologie, Bloomingdale’s, Francesca’s Collections or Hanna Andersson for your little ones.
Making a Day of It
Fashion Island is just as famous for the great eats as it is the fab looks. Your staples are aplenty, such as Auntie Anne’s, but don’t miss out on the unique-to-Anaheim favorites. Try the newly opened Sushi Roku or the upcoming Hopdoddy Burger Bar, opening any day now! Otherwise, you can always dine while enjoying the latest Hollywood creation at the gigantic cinema featuring a full café, beer and wine menu.
Group tours are available, and the amenities make it a breeze to visit the Island with the whole family. Plan your itinerary carefully—you don’t want to miss out on any of the action!
