The Grove

If you ask an Angeleno where to find the ultimate shopping experience, chances are they’ll say the Grove at Farmer’s Market, just a mile and a half from Le Parc Suite Hotel. Centering on the historic Farmer’s Market, this 575,000-square-foot outdoor marketplace, with its art-deco-style false fronts and musical fountain, is the place to go for the latest fashions and must-have gadgets; a dazzling array of eateries, ranging from gourmet burgers to steak and oysters to a classic supper club; and the latest movie releases at Pacific Theatres, offering 14 stadium-style theatres and 3D experiences.

Clearly, you’ll need to plan to spend the whole day here.
