South Bay Galleria: A pretty standard option as far as malls go, the three-level South Bay Galleria has a food court, an AMC movie theater, three anchor stores (Macys, Kohl’s, and Nordstrom’s) and multi-level parking structures. You'll likely find a typical young mall crowd here given the movie theater, and the list of stores and food court options are standard chain options, along with a couple of healthy options. Located at the corner of two major streets, this mall is easy to get to.

South Bay Pavilion:
This indoor-outdoor, one-story mall is highlighted by Target, Old Navy, JC Penny, Sears and an IKEA. The mall is smallish, and like several others on this list has parking issues. The biggest draw for South Bay Pavilion is the food options, because you will find a Chuck E. Cheese’s, Five Guys Burgers, Wing Stop, California Grill, Chili’s and SanSai Japanese Grill, along with smaller chain stops. On Thursday’s there is a Farmer’s Market outside and the Kid’s Club offers free events.

Del Amo Fashion Center:
The largest mall in South Bay, Del Amo boasts more than 200 stores over two levels, anchored by Macys, JCPenny, Marshalls/TJ Maxx, Old Navy and an 18-screen AMC Theater. This is a very big indoor-outdoor mall, but is filled with stores like high-end brands like Coach and Kate Spade New York, to everyday wear like Uniqlo and Zara. There are plenty of food options to choose from, such as casual chain restaurants like BJ’s Restaurant and Johnny Rockets, to more specialty varieties like Din Tai Fung and EMC Seafood and Raw Bar.
