The Grove is that staple mall in Los Angeles that has become famous as the backdrop to Access Hollywood and many other televised programs. For an outdoor mall it is well kept and always has great family friendly activities for all ages. I do enjoy that The Grove is attached to the Farmers Market and that they have that great outdoor vibe that is LA. The smells, sounds and people watching is what this place is all about. The one item that does tend to be a cumbersome is the parking situation at The Grove. Because of its location and popularity, parking does take time to find so be patient and be prepared to spend some time driving the several levels. On the bright side, most stores and restaurants will validate parking.
