The valet closes between 12 and 1 am and if your car is still there (some movies are out after it closes, you are out of luck!! Valet parking... More

This is a vibrant shopping center for all locals and visitors alike. It is family friendly as well as attractive to teens, young adults and seniors who want to just wander through the various shopping corridors. It has a village like atmosphere and is a safe place for the kids to hang out. Great shops, lots of variety and plenty... More

Wide variety of restaurants, huge move theater and lots of shops. There are department stores and a Target which is a bonus compared to the other malls in our area. The security is also nice.

Wonderful open air mall that you can seem to find anything you want there. It's really pretty during the holidays.

We went to Spectrum Center to experience outdoor skating in shorts and T-shirts (something you cannot do in Canada). For about 3 winter months they operate a small outdoor skating rink. Somehow the ice is still solid with temperatures outside reaching low 80's (about 27C). Apart from ice rink we found an amazing outdoor mall. Great choice of stores, great... More
