A huge mall. Many small shops but not a lot of name brands. Price for lost store reasonable. Layout of the mall is good and easy to locate shops. Been to many malls and this one is not very impressive. It is ok.

They have almost every store you could think of there, as well as every restaurant. Whether you're looking for a great bargain or for more expensive items, you can find it at Destiny.

I remember when I lived in Syracuse and Destiny was just in its planning phase. Seeing it completed and an incredible shopping, eating and entertainment destination is awesome for Syracuse. Every time, we head to upstate to visit family our kids insist on a visit to Destiny. Great shopping, so many yummy restaurants and activities for the entire family. Fun... More

Fantastic. The addition of the extension and the new stores and dining and entertainment block has made Destiny USA a one stop family spot except the hotel rooms are the only addition missing to make this complete.

Thought I would investigate this mall, since I the reviews stated it was a place to go. Let me tell you that I was very disappointed. As vast as it was, I found a lot of vacant spaces throughout the mall. In fact, the traffic did not seem all that busy. Maybe the summer holidays? I was informed that there... More

Half the size of Mall of America. Just the usual stores found in every town mall. Not really a destination. It was fine to break up a road trip.

First of all to all the naysayers of Destiny. This place is great growing up in Minnesota with the mall of America Destiny totally out shines the MOA. It offers a wide array of shops and great food establishments. Great place to shop and eat

This is a place of last resort if I can't find what I want elsewhere, or have to go for the location of several other stores in one place. Parking is a pain. Too big. Only go if I absolutely have to. Remembering where I parked is a major issue, especially if I go to the other end of the... More

If you go to Destiny, be sure to bring your walking shoes. The place is huge and you will find yourself walking all over the place. The interactive maps were very helpful. Using the guides, find the place you want to go and the map will show you the quickest and fastest route.
