“Best Mall in Sac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Arden Fair Mall is the best mall in the greater Sacramento area. It has skylights, so there is lots of beautiful, natural light. There are plenty of stores to visit and a large food court as well. Be warned: parking can be horrendous... Especially at Christmastime!

“Quaint, clean mall in Sacramento”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

If you're in the Sacramento area and crave some shopping then this mall may just fulfill that need.

It's a clean, quaint mall with major brand names. If you're a visitor to the area, show your driver's license to the Guest Services desk (lower level in the middle of the mall) and you'll get a coupon book. Some of the coupons aren't bad and there was even a coupon for 50% off the local zoo.

There are 2 levels to the mall with a glass atrium along the length of it welcoming lots of natural sunlight.

Parking is plentiful and AC is nice and cool inside. A great retreat from the heat.

Washrooms were very clean.

For the kiddies: there was a cute little carousel in the mall.

“Not as great as the plaza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2005

Arden fair mall shouldnt be a place where people go to stare at women. It is a place to shop, work and meet with friends. In my opinion arden fair mall is not as great at the Downtown plaza. The downtown plaza is open aired...it feels fresh. Arden is a two story building, closed in...so i always feel a little warm and stuffy. During Christmas its a pain. There is completely free parking, however there have been several crime scenes occuring in the parking lot. Arden mall has almost every shop youd want, so there is a benefit, and during christmas Santa visits! Arden fair mall has a lot of scum however, so id take this visit with a grain of salt, and maybe consider frequenting a different mall.

“Arden Fair Rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2003

The Arden Fair Mall is centrally located amongst many other great resturaunts, hotels, comedy clubs and other Sacramento attractions. The Mall itself is very nice. A two story mall that has everything from tires for you car to a ring for you girlfriend. Speaking of girlfriends, this mall also attracts a lotttttt of good looking women ;) With no intent to buy anything, the visual is a good enough reason to take a stroll from one end to the other ;)
