this is a great place for kids who are interested in gymnastics. this is basically a huge warehouse that is outfitted with tramolines, horses, balance beams, etc. they have a ton of classes available for all ages. the staff is very friendly and well trained.
This large showroom is a great place to find backyard play equipment. their products are all solid redwood and they have a very knowledgeable staff and are very friendly.
my daughter was interested in dance (6 years old) and i thought it might be fun for her. however, these teachers acted as if their pupils were going to be professionals and drilled them in such a manner as to take out any fun that might be involved. if your child wishes to be a professional dancer then this is the place for you. if you are looking for a fun studio to have your child experience different types of dancing for fun, move along.
This large restaurant is a bit too dark and "clubby" for my taste - dark interiors and large, dark furniture. The food is about a 6 on a 1-10 scale. It is part of South Coast Plaza so it is a good place to kick up your feet after a long day of shopping but not such a great place as a dining destination.
this golf superstore is fantastic for golf fanatics. they have a huge selection, friendly and knowledgeable staff and great prices. They do a great job of making sure you purchase the right products for your needs.
This public course is pretty beaten up. We occasionally go here for a quick 9 holes because we can get right on, but it is not a great course. The fairways are pretty scrubby and you have to cross the SA river - sometimes with no bridge. again - OK for a quick game.
In-house Starbucks, sushi and sandwich/soup bar makes this market tolerable if you are already in the area. Not a great produce department. Would suggest going instead to Gelson's off San Joaquin instead.
This is a fairly expensive market but the produce is worth every extra cent! they have a great selection of fruit and vegetables and the highest quality around. super helpful staff and never a long wait to check out.
This is a great place to buy clean-lined, contemporary furniture at reasonable prices. They have a very large selection as well as a lot of in-stock items which can be delivered within a week. most items can be customized with your choice of fabric/finish as well. Great staff - very helpful and friendly.
This vegetarian cafe inside Mother's market is quite good. Very fresh and interesting selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very friendly service. Fresh vegetable and fruit juices and food to go. Good prices too.
