Destiny USA is huge! It has so many stores you can't possibly visit each one in a day. Macy's, Lord & Taylor, J.C. Penney, Old Navy, Forever 21, Chico's, J Jill, William Sonoma and on and on. Each store is enormous. Go there ready to walk. Amazing indoor mall. Highly recommend.

This is just another big mall with little to distinguish it from any other mall. I saw the same big chains, restaurants and thought that I could have been just about anywhere in the U.S. Unless you like walking around in a typical mall, this really isn't worth the time.

The old Carousel Mall got a new lease of life when it turned into Destiny USA. It still hasn't reached the promised potential yet, but is very much worth a visit. In addition to the old-style food court, with it's main attraction the Carousel, there is a new area with some of the higher-end chain restaurants - Gordon Biersch, P.F.... More

Lot's of stores in a really nice upscale mall. 3 floors with lots of brand name stores and a huge merry-go-round in the food court. Breathtaking really. Also an indoor obstacle course place for the really active kids.

This place has it all! Upscale shops, outlet stores, fine dining, casual dining, fun for kids, movies, and almost every store you'd imagine in a mall. It rivals any of the largest malls in America. We spent 6 hours (including lunch) and maybe got through half of it. Great destination for shopping in upstate NY.
