One of the best mall...it's like an indoor city with an amusement park...plenty of parking spaces across the walk over bridge...plenty of restaurants to eat out...and tons of shops to look at. The carousel is beautiful. It's worth a visit.

You'll find everything you need here from box stores to restaurants to go-carts. That is of course if you mind a hike. This place is enormous.

The Mall is easily a days long event. However it isn't exactly a Fun time unless you are into mall crawling. I will push it from a 3 to a 4 due to the attractions like Wonder Works and others like the mirror maze, however they are very overpriced. Value for dollar you are much better off visiting one of...

For the most part it's just a really large mall. Those who like to shop will love it. Those who don't, won't. The third floor is for those who are looking for something different. Go-Cart tracks, simulated golf, bowling, comedy clubs, country concerts and laser tag are just a few of the many options you'll find. The kids will need... More

Coming from Ottawa, it was worth seeing what everyone talks about. Not a lot of great deals but Dick's had a lot of football gear that is not available in Canada. Easy to spend a whole day in the mall wandering around.

Very large mall with great selection of stores with everything from medium to high end. Restaurants include everything from fast food to mid-high quality sit down eateries. Entertain ranges from comedy club to arcade restaurant to go cart races and Wonder Works. This can easily be an all day place.

Destiny has gotten so large (and it seems to keep growing), it is easy to spend most of a day checking out the stores, and not only the stores, but the entertainment and restaurants as well. I enjoy my occasional trips there, but really, i mostly reserve my purchases to the restaurants, although the Bon Ton and Burlington Coat Factory... More

Destiny has definitely grown in recent years but, not for the better, in my opinion. It's too big, the interactive directory didn't work, you pay a premium to shop there and the parking is horrendous, especially if you are handicapped. There are a lot of stores but I'm surprised many of them make it. The food court is OK and,... More
