Stanford shopping center is your usual shopping center. Good part is that it's very close to Palo Alto where I was staying but nothing out of the ordinary though. A collection of branded outlets and cafes

The Shopping Center has lots of cool shops (Macy's, urban outfittery, Gap, Nike, Apple, Abercrombie and many more). Especially worth for Europeans when they have sales.

It is always fun to go to the Mall....Especially Stanford. It always has flower arrangements that are over the top. It is a great place to both shop and get groceries....Best ever meat market, Schwabs, and fruit and vegetables. Stop by the olive oil and vinegar bar......You can't go wrong.

Lots of high end stores that draw a crowd worth people-watching. But also some essentials, including a terrific butcher in (Schaubs) and produce market (Sigona's). Try the Fred steak or the spicy mango Georgia peach bourbon chicken sausage. Grab veggies and bread and wine. Dinner. Done.

The best thing about it that it is not an indoor mall. Walking and shopping around while enjoying the warm weather of California is a great pleasure . You can spend the day shopping starting from high end shops to affordable shops like banana republic & gap. Macys , Neiman Marcus, blooming dales and Nordstrom are the highlights of the... More

The Stanford Mall has changed dramatically over the years from being a general purpose mall that had a drugstore and a grocery, toy stores and kid stores, to a very end mall that caters to the affluent. If you are looking for designer merchandise, you will be happy. If you have young kids or teens, you will find much less... More

Great selection of stores laid out in a breezy outdoor space with comfy chairs along the way to sit and rest. Kids love the fountains. Don't miss the little market area for lunch or dinner.

It may be the best outdoor shopping mall in bay area. All kinds of shops, and most of them are big names. Reasonable amount of free parking positions.
