Good shopping and great opportunities

This is the best outlet in the area, the other one you have to be close to Tijuana, but in this one you can have almost everything. Great sales and bargains

We regularly come to the outlets to shop. Lots of great shopping choices and also a nice place to walk in this open air mall. Many major brands represented here as well as some not represented on other outlet centers.

A beautiful outlet center with a lot of parking but so much visitors it is often hard to find a place. Which means it must be good for everyone. Starbucks on the corner for the guy who does not want to shop.

Passed by and the range of shops were good with obvious limitations on ranges of goods. Eating places average. Clean with plenty of parking.

Called in here for a few hours while in the area. Nice clean Outlet Mall with a good mixture of stores. I did find a few bargains. Trick is if you have limited time to choose the stores you want to visit and stick to them. Also visit welcome office for a coupon book when first arrive. Visited on a... More

Larger outlet with many big name factory stores. Lots of sales and definitely worth the visit. We went to the customer service center first and bought a discount card that offers more discounts at several stores. Worth it.

I'm not sure why the call this an outlet mall?! There are no real sales or bargains. I went to the crate and barrel store to see if they had a replacement dish for the one I broke and it was the exact same price as in the regular store. I then decided to look into lucky brand for a... More

Has many name brand shops with fairly good prices. The restaurants have reasonable prices. A lot of the stores had at least 20% to 30% off items, some stores more. Big parking lot but fills up fast with cars . Has a limited number of Handicap parking spaces. The stores are individual so you are outside in between stores.

This is an excellent factory outlet as there are so many stores, restaurants and eateries. Easy to find with many choices. The only negative is that it can be difficult to find a car park.
