When on holiday, I spend time between Bakersfield and San Diego with my daughters and their family. I either fly into SAN or LAX, but in any event at some point in time we meet and one of my daughters hands me off to the other. And we select the Irvine Spectrum Center to accomplish this. Plenty of department stores... More

This is a great place to shop and be entertained. met my future wife here after work and strolled around. The amusement park rides are a little cheesy but a perfect filler to add some fun and memories to your romantic walk. December 2011

I mainly run and lift. The running and eliptical machines are in horrible shape. The need to be maintained. Today I could not find a bike that was working at all. It usually takes 3-4 tries on a treadmill to find one that works. I wish they would just step up and maintain what we as members pay for. Get... More

Came to irvine for my daughter who's going to college. A friend of mine recommended the place. Its an out door in door mall. Went there on a weekday and its not too crowded. Irvine is one of the most expensive cities in CALI. So expect everything to be more expensive than your usual mall. I just laugh at people... More

I personally hate shopping indoors thats why I like this place: outside shops, restaurants and a play area for kids. If you're looking for souvenirs there is more than one booth that sells California shirts/sweaters but the thing is spectrum is packed with arabs to be more specific "Saudi's" thats one thing I don't like !

Many stores, nice layout, but pretty expensive. Great food places to eat, and a huge movie theater. You can spend the whole day there if you like. My favorite place to shop is Naartjie for kids, and favorite place to eat is Cucina Enoteca :)
