With six acres ad 67 shops and restaurants, the Malibu Country Mart is as close as this beach town gets to a traditional mall. Not surprisingly, the vibe is upscale and while prices for some items might be high, visitors on a budget will appreciate the free parking and a stellar playground for kids in the center of the mart. Families can enjoy free Wi-Fi, window shopping, yoga classes, the chance to get everything from acupuncture to a car wash, and even a few real estate offices to enter if they decide they want to stay in town. There’s also a chance of seeing a star or two — and some paparazzi.
Open from 10 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays. Because the mart is one of the few places in town with free parking, it can get busy on weekends.
