The Grove Shopping Center

 California shopping

The Grove in Los Angeles is a boutique outdoor shopping mall located across the street from the famous Los Angeles Farmer's Market.  As you enter the shopping mall, you can get an overview by hopping on a unique, double decker tram ride that moves on a track back and forth through the shopping center. This ride (which is free) is a fun way to see what's in store for your day of shopping and dining. Built on an historic undercarriage from a 1950’s Boston street car, it travels the ¼ mile track between The Grove and The Farmers Market in 6 minutes. Red oak running boards, custom-cast brass handrails and fittings, and two spiral staircases that lead to the upper deck offer spectacular views of architectural styles encompassed in the the shopping mall. The Grove Trolley is powered by electric battery cells, making it the first use of inductive power technology in the U.S. for a transit system.



A dancing fountain similar to the much larger fountain that graces the entrance to Bellagio on the Las Vegas (Nevada) Strip was built by the same engineering firm,  WET Design. Every 30 minutes the fountain comes alive with songs and a water show in which the water dances in rhythmic patterns to the tunes of  Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Russell Watson, Bette Midler, Lou Rawls, Harry Connick Jr., Kool and the Gang, Lionel Richie and other top performing artists. A 30-foot-long ellipse of 32 pulsing water jets and an inner ring with eight arching and swaying columns of water join together to create a water dance that reaches heights of 60 feet.



Another feature of the shopping mall attraction is The Spirit of Los Angeles, a commissioned work by sculptor De L’Esprie. The statue stands 18 feet high atop a 22 foot hand limestone column and includes a bronze statue of a male and a female angel soaring skyward.

Do you have a craving for chocolate? Stop by Bodega Chocolates for a special treat. Ice cream doesn't come any better than Haagen-Dazs, located in the mall. Want an apple? Drop by the Apple Store where you can purchase state-of-the art mind food products from the computer manufacturer artists swear by for easy-to-use, intuitive software and cool designs. Barnes & Noble also provides some great magazines, books and software.
