About Fashion Island Shopping Center in Newport Beach, California

The overlooked kids vacation spot with carousels to ride is the mall. And in Southern California’s Orange County, outdoor malls are anything but boring for children. Fashion Island is an outdoor mall with upscale stores such as Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus that could bore the tears out of children. But with some imagination, it is a fun place for families with kids on vacation.

Fashion Island has always been an outdoor mall. At transitional points when other malls went different directions to mostly indoor stores, food courts, discount stores and services, Fashion Island reflected the needs of an upscale mid-to-upper income audience that likes designer stores, boutiques and interactive outdoor areas for families with kids. It doesn’t hurt to have the ocean as your backdrop, either. And while a food court was added to Fashion Island, the offerings in that Atrium court now target workers in the surrounding office parks who come to lunch, seeking affordable and fast foods. The mall also includes a California Pizza Kitchen, Mexican restaurants and outdoor food courts for children.

Boutiques with kids clothes, colorful walkways with kid-themed tiles, several unique splash fountains, including one that kids love to stand in, and the carousel, are the extra touches that bring the community out to enjoy.
