Wow, what a beautiful renovation Southbay Pavilion has experienced. Shown in the photo above is an entry to the renovated shopping mall. Ample use of custom stone and glass have really created a new look and feel to the once worn indoor mall.


Southbay Pavilion is huge and rambling, and on any day of the year (except major holidays), you'll see thousands of people streaming in and out of one the anchor stores, Ikea. In addition to the furnishing discount place, there are major anchors such as Sears, Target and J.C. Penney's. Visible from the San Diego Freeway near Harbor Freeway, the shopping center offerings are mostly proven success businesses such as food chains, big box outlets, and phone and wireless stores, bakeries and other shops the public seeks.


Located in the heart of Carson, Southbay Pavilion is quite popular. We visited on a holiday, and the cars just kept coming, even though many shops were closed.  Maybe like us, the were passing by and window shopping to see what the place featured. After driving around the entire complex, I decided I would need to return on a non-holiday. Just the new look, itself, makes you want to stop and shop, even if you are not that keen on shopping.


Other points of interest include Southbay Pavilion, a shopping mall with JC Penney, a Food Court with all the regular fast food snacks such as Wetzel Pretzel and Mrs Fields Cookies. Head outside the mall and you'll find a parking lot crop of great chain eateries such as Tony Roma's, Chili's and Panda Express (at the mall).


A great place to stop and pick up what you need or to eat when visiting, Carson is the heart of oil refinery business in L.A.  As such the air can sometimes be pungent, though most days it is OK.


One of the most diverse populations live in Carson with nearly an equal mix of Caucasians and Afro-Americans, and a smaller, yet fair contingent of Asians. When you visit the mall, you'll see that nearly equal mix represented in the shopping profile.
