If you like to shop this is worth a stop. Nordstrom Rack, a great wine shop. and teh usual chains and some good restaurants. It was packed but worth it.

This place is fun. It took me several visits before I realized that the walking part of the outdoor mall runs along the North side of the Shopping Complex. It's hard to see unless someone tells you where it is. There's good parking and a large Cinemark theater at the end of the Mall. Lots of popular stores and good... More

Still has the classic stores as a regular mall does, but it's outside, so you ARE getting fresh air. It gets crowded quickly, especially with the college so close by. Plenty of places to eat at....again, IF you can get into one of them. We enjoy the outdoor venues--concerts, dance recitals, etc. Even had a flash mob wedding proposal once.... More

Boy, is this place large and it's not a mall but an outdoor shopping centre. I'm not sure how many square blocks it is, but it you can't find what you want, then you must be in the wrong spot. I was only looking for a few things, cause you know us guys hate to shop. Anyways, they have a... More

Tempe Marketplace is a decent outdoor mall - very similar to Desert Ridge or The Pavilions with your standards such as Target, DSW, Ulta and Steinmart. They have a variety of restaurants which I have yet to try, but it's definitely a place I would come back to for shopping.

Love the concept of this outdoor mall. Great shopping. I especially like DSW and JCPenney. Great little water area for kids and a cozy fire for the winter time. Easy access to here from the interstate. Nice big outdoor mall!

There are many stores here to choose from. I've been to quite a few but not all of them! The theater here is very good. Parking can be tricky at times, it's so popular!
