Experience outdoor shopping and relaxation at The Americana at Brand! I enjoy hanging out by the fountain, getting fresh air, and taking a break here after shopping next door at the Glendale Galleria (see Glendale Galleria article).
The Americana at Brand was built by Caruso Affiliated -the same company who built The Grove- so there is a similar vibe and no need to visit both locations if you are visiting L.A. for a short while (I recommend going to the Grove if you can only check out one location).
If you’d rather shop than rest, there’s a ton of stores, including: Barnes & Noble, Barney’s New York, Apple, Sephora, Anthropologie, UGG Australia, Lululemon Athletica, and Forever 21. You can also catch a movie at the Pacific Theaters. Pacific Theaters also hosts Monday Morning Mommy Movies for mom’s with infants and there’s also Fit4Mom Stroller Strides classes on Wednesdays and Fridays from 09:00 – 10:00.
Some eating options: Lemonade, Frida Mexican Cuisine, and Katsuya. For dessert, why not try the ever popular Sprinkles Cupcakes or Pinkberry frozen yogurt.
Shop, dine, or catch a film – there’s plenty to do! Check out their website for more details.
