Most beautiful outdoor shopping mall!

I almost didn't come to this mall for fear that the name brand stores would be out of my price range. But it is so worth coming just to view the outdoor landscaping and flowers... read more

I almost didn't come to this mall for fear that the name brand stores would be out of my price range. But it is so worth coming just to view the outdoor landscaping and flowers as well as the nice seating areas. I felt like I was in an arboretum with the sights, sounds and smells…It is a little bit... More

A really cool outdoor shopping experience like no other I have been to. Unfortunately, there are very few stores there for anyone that has any semblance of a budget. My review score is based on appearance of the center, not on affordable stores.

Some great shops and department stores, together with comfy seats dotted around the mall to chill on in the sunshine when you need a break!

This is a nice area for a stroll with terrific shopping. This shopping area is right next to Stanford University.

We went shopping at Macy's after dinner. There are a lot of shops in the mall to broase. The shopping center is going thru a remodel, but that does not interfere with all the shops. It is a very well maintained mall and it is always pleasant to broase around the shops.

Stanford is a very well maintained and safe shopping mall with great stores and restaurants. It's also a place where you could just grab a cup of coffee and people watch.

Nice job on putting together a great market place. Love the open air, the dogs walking around, the smiling faces, the friendly staff, went to look period, spent some coin. Great little shop for bearded men to visit - wonderful shave lotions, quality shaving gear and a salesman with a beard I wish I could grow! Wonderful mall! Parking is... More

Who needs to visit a shopping center while traveling? Unless you are in some exotic location, They tend to be very much the same. But if you are from asia, come on in. spend money. Recommend a pass.

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.
