Great shopping mall, but also filled with other fun activities like merry go rounds & ferris wheels & an ice skating rink. Felt like I was in a county fair. Some nice shopping stores & great restaurants.

Beautiful place to just walk around in with lots to do and see even for kids. The Ferris wheel is a great attraction for families.

This is a nice outdoor mall with a lot of your upscale shops in it, now if you are looking for bargains you can find them from time to time but this is not the outlet malls. There is a good mix of restaurants from casual to nice sit down types. It is a nice place to go and walk... More

All the Yuppies and Gen X'ers go to the center. The people are rude and have no manners. Do not go on a Friday or Saturday night unless you are willing to fight the crowds at any restaurant or the movie theater. Parking is ridiculous! Best bet is a day time visit to shop only!

Great restaurants, comedy club, ice rink, excellent shopping… outdoors. What more could you ask for. You can find pretty much any type of food here and there's shopping for everyone. Very well laid out shopping mall. Ample parking and Valet available for $3.

It's a mall. That being said, it has some nice food, and is anchored by some bigger (& more upscale) stores. I like the decorations, that the parking garage hinted how many spaces on each floor, etc.
