My title says it all. There are the usual cast of characters: serious shoppers, people with nothing else to do and the ubiquitous teenage mall thugs. Why would anybody think of a shopping as an "attraction"? Probably the high points are the food courts.

First time I came here was 18 years ago and the mall was great. Now it is definitely past its prime. Do not expect something special here, it is just an ordinary mall. If you look for a serious shopping experience, I would recommend Westfield Galleria in Redding.

I then walked around the mall. I found a nice present for my wife. I would go back again to this mall.

It was unfortunate for us as first time visitors to Sacramento to find that Downtown Sacramento is at this time virtually a ghost town...pending a complete redevelopment of the area ...expected to take a few years apparently. So by our 8th day we knew there wasn't more to see in the CBD and caught a taxi to Arden Fair...well worth... More

A fairly large mall with over 160 shop capacity. Not all were occupied. Has a few anchor stores: JC Penny, Macy's, Nordstrom. The Macy's here doesn't carry really high end designer wear, but they do carry some designer labels (Calvin Klein). More typical of a Macy's in the suburbs. Sacramento gets so hot that you see huge crowds malling with... More

Once you find "close" parking, it's a really a nice place to shop, eat and/or go to the movies. There is shopping for the whole family to enjoy.

There are plenty of stores here. Parking is often very crowded. It's much like any other mall. Nothing that makes is unique. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there, but if in the area, I have no problem shopping there. There are a few nice restaurants available in the mall and they have a nice carousel for... More

Not a super center giant mall, but a good one with tons of parking...and always fullish..check parking in back - may be easier to find a spot...great restaurants...just a few blocks from State Fairgrounds...

Visited this Arden Fair maybe May or July, when stayed at Sheraton in Sacramento! On Sacramento Gold Card for the hotel guests, go to Information Booth, show the card, they give a coupon booklet, think worth $10.00! I did this previous stays, any time use the coupons, they always ask, "Welcome to Sacramento! What hotel you staying?" Guess may local... More
