It is a great mall with a lot of stores, and it is very clean. easily accessible bathrooms, plenty of escalators, elevators, and spots to stop and rest. The new wing is very classy looking. If only they built the hotel they were considering... you would never have to leave the mall, between the great shops, the movies, dave and... More

Gets a "very good" because of the variety and huge-ness! Lots of great anchor stores could go in there. There is empty space available. Not easy to get around because it is gigantic. Top floor does have lots of specialty places to do fun activities. I bet it is packed in the winter. They even have an indoor go-kart track.... More

Big mall. The expansion is huge, not completely finished yet. Looks like more store's and restaurant's still to open or in the process of opening. The older section is not much different since it was called the Carousel Mall, only with different stores.

When I first read that a mall in Syracuse wanted to expand to become the largest mall in the world with all sorts of indoor attractions, it sounded too outlandish to be true. I had to see it. And it was too outlandish. A combination of the city of Syracuse and banks prevented that version of the mall from being... More

So this place is huge. I don't think I even made it to half the stores. I spent at least an hour with friends in a place called DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) because I love shoes and ... well... this place was the jackpot for me. :) And so many great deals! I came back with quite a few more... More

Destiny USA is a testament to shopping culture - It has all the major chain stores and even a few minor ones. It also has many restaurants and 'experiential' attractions such as Toby Keith's I Heart This Bar & Grill, PF Chang's, and also attractions for kids like 5 Wits and a rope course. My friend and I were there... More

WOW ... what more can I say ... huge. If shopping isn''t your thing send the family off and go have fun. Movies, restaurants, arcades, wonder works, mirror maze, rope adventure, bowling, and more. Something for everyone

This place is massive and has all the usual stores plus dozens of ones that are not the usual mall fare. They also have unusual attractions and indoor amusement park style places on the top floor. There is a wide variety of restaurants and they are always expanding. If you can't make it to the Mall of America and want... More
