The District Tustin - by Nandaro - WikipediaThe District is a large open-air mall with many shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. 

How large, you ask? The mall covers comprise a million square feet and cross several streets.

It is an excellent place for OC residents to get their shopping done or enjoy a night out – or do both on the same day.

You can spend time at the promenade, walking through the unique shops, bowling, exercising at the fitness center, dining at one of the upscale restaurants, or getting a quick bite.

You can also catch the latest blockbuster movie at the AMC 16 theater.

For shopping, you can find big-box retailers, such as Target, TJMaxx/Home Goods, Whole Foods, Lowe's, Michaels, Costco, Ulta Beauty, Vans, and Tillys.

Orange County - RA SushiDining

Whatever you are in the mood for, you can find it at the District. You can grab a bite at popular fast-food chains like In N Out, CHICK-FIL-A, Aloha Hawaiian Bbq. Or you can enjoy an evening of drinks and tasty dishes at a sit-down restaurant like RA Sushi or Prego.

RA Sushi

A delight for the eye and the pallet, RA Sushi is located in the District in Tustin with both indoor and outdoor seating. 

On our last visit, we enjoyed several rolls, hand rolls, and sashimi dishes. My favorites were the Viva Las Vegas and the Crunchy Shrimp Tempura rolls. 

For dessert, we tried their coconut cream brulle and the Cinamon Tempura Ice Cream. Both were delicious.

Prego

The District Tustin - PregoPrego sits in a corner inside the Promanade and offers delicious Italian cuisine.

Along with the traditional pasta dishes, you can find unique creations like Australian Lamb Chops or the Braised Short Rib Ravioli.

On a recent visit, we sat on the porch and ordered the Australian Lamb Chops and the Lobster Ravioli. Both were cooked to perfection and tasted great. We also enjoyed peach margaritas.

For dessert, we ordered the Teramasu. It wasn't one of the best we had, but it was an ok end to our meal. 

Union Market

Union Market is a unique take on Food Courts. You can find food stalls, restaurants & boutiques under one roof. 

With places like Churned Creamery, Portola Coffee Roasters, Cubed Poke, Roba Noodle, and Stowaway Tiki Bar, you are guaranteed to find something you like.

AMC Theater

This 14 auditorium theater at the district, is an AMC upgraded complex with reclining-heated seats. Some auditoriums offer Digital Dolby Cinema for an enhanced experience. 

I watched the Eternals here when it first came out. I loved the movie and the theater.

The staff are friendly and helpful. I made a mistake when I booked my tickets online, but they were happy to fix it for me.
