Los Angeles the Grove
After opening in 2002, the Grove quickly became a premier LA shopping destination. Visit flagship shops including Nordstrom, American Girl Place, Topshop by Nordstrom, and other major brands, or catch a film at its movie theater, Pacific Theatres at The Grove. The dancing fountain, as well as restaurants ranging from fast-casual chains to the high-end 189 by Dominique Ansel, the chef who invented the Cronut, also draw crowds.
Explore The Grove on a group tour or go in the company of a private guide as part of a larger LA highlights excursion. Alternatively, visit independently to enjoy a dose of self-guided retail therapy.
