Pet Friendly Shopping at Fashion Island
Shopping at Fashion Island Wonderful outdoor mall that is completely pet friendly. Just about all the stores in this upscale mall allow dogs to shop with their owners in the stores. The only disappointing thing is that none of the restaurants really allow dogs on their outdoor patios. Small dogs can get away with being in your purse, but bigger dogs are not usually able to hide very well. It is still worth going shopping here though as it is truly a doggie parade with all the various breeds cruising around on nice days. See Details
