Irvine Spectrum is conveniently located between I-405 & I-5. The easiest place to park and get in and out of is take the I-5 and exit for Irvine Spectrum Center. If traveling North,at the Bake exit- turn left and then left at the next light. As you travel South on next to the center, go past the new construction and... More

Very nice center with almost anything you would want to do. Sometimes a little confusing with so many aisles to walk down, but if you want to leisurely stroll through a shopping area, this is the place to go, shop, eat, ride the ferris wheel, catch a movie or just people watch. There is a directory you can pick up... More

Spent the day visiting the shops and checking out the attractions. This is a beautifully landscaped entertainment center which includes every type of shop and entertainment imaginable. We had a great time just walking around viewing all the shops. Would love to spend more time here in the future.

I've been coming here for 18 years and never get tired of this place. Great movie theatre with IMAX and RPX. Excellent choice of restaurants between high end and casual. Lots and lots of shops, kiosks. Great place for people watching.

The Spectrum was huge - we did a part one later afternoon and another part the next day when family wanted to explore. Did not get to view the whole thing as it is huge! A new Courtyard Marriott is a short drive so access to the variety of restaurants on the north end was easy.

Always packed irregardless of time going...weekday/weekend and morning/afternoon/evening. Endless eating choices to choose from. Outdoor walking. Clean. Has valet parking near the restaurant end. It's a maze here you'll get lost on your first trip here.

This is it! A lovely outdoor mall... Enjoy a casual stroll... This is mid-market shopping.... Macy's is the anchor along with Target. There are lots of shops, eateries, theatres and a comedy club. There is a neat train and a carousel. Grab a coffee and people watch.

This is a shopping mall with and extreme list of eateries. We went from the Nationals Swim meet to the Spectrum on three occasions. At nights this place is loaded with people and it is fun just to sit and watch them go by. They have a large parking garage that at times seems to be a bit too small... More
