Fashion Island is my favorite shopping center in Orange County. Not only is it near the ocean, but it carries some of my most coveted stores :) From standing in front of Robinson's May, you can catch the horizon and watch a beautiful sunset setting above the ocean. Fashion Island's stores are pretty upscale, so don't expect it to be a hang-out place for teenagers/middle school kids. This shopping mall is easy to access, all the stores are near each other so you wouldn't have to walk as much. Fashion Island has sophisticated stores such as Anthropologie, FACE, The SAK, Modern Romance, Grasshopers, Z Gallerie, etc. You will find a variety of stores at Fashion Island.
