If you love to shop, plan to stay at least a week in Irvine, bring an empty suitcase and wear comfortable shoes.
Irvine offers fashionistas, casual shoppers and people-watchers five major shopping destinations. You can easily wile away a whole day at any one, whether strolling through the shops of Irvine Spectrum Center or enjoying a leisurely sunny day at Fashion Island.
Of course, even dedicated shoppers need a break from time to time, and that's where Irvine shopping really excels! See the city from 150 feet in the air, slip down to the beach for a picnic, or let the kids go bowling while you relax over food and drinks, choosing from hundreds of restaurants, both locally owned and Southern California favorites. When you're visiting Irvine and Orange County, shopping is a destination in itself!
