I like the easy-going atmosphere of the Laguna Hills Mall. It's not as chaotic as S. Coast Plaza, but you can still get a lot of shopping done and enjoy a movie. I have a concern about visiting a store called Beach Bum Skateboards. I entered the shop and in less than five minutes I had to leave. On Sunday March 15 I had my 9 year old son, 3 year old daughter, and my neighbor's kid with me in the store. The store was blaring rap music, which I am not at all opposed to, but it created a very unprofessional atmosphere for a Sunday family day at the mall with ""F---"" and ""Ni---"" words clearly uttered throughout the song. I had to explain to my son's friend that we donot listen to that type of music and that it would not be repeated in our presence. We left and went to the Vans store where we received a very professional courteous service and a skateboard for my son.
Pros: Peaceful, Relaxed atmosphere; Not overcrowded
Cons: Can sometimes look like a ghost town
