We decided to drive a bit to go to Destiny USA (for something different). I will say that I couldn't really wrap my head around the layout of this mall. It seemed disjointed in places. Food court was hard to find. Directory signs were few and far between. They did have a great selection of stores, including many outlet stores... More

This is a huge mall. I would certainly look into mapping out a plan before you visit. Make it an all day adventure. Why not? Have your children bring closed toed shoes to complete the ropes course. Excellent experience.

I remembered this mall from many years back when it was called 'The Carousel Mall'. A lot of changes have happened since I was here last 10 years ago. They have a huge variety of stores and more choices to eat. While we were here we watched a movie and checked out 'Five Wits'. My teenage daughters and I played... More

There's a Herschell Carousel inside, a plus for families. There's many attractions for the entire family, including the movies. It's a mall built to be "uncrowded" unlike the usual.

This is a huge, clean, and modern mall with lots of full size anchor stores as well as many boutique shops, outlet stores, restaurants, play areas for children, and a full size Regal theater. It is a little confusing to navigate around but there are plenty of directories and great signage. Not the Mall of America but pretty close!

This mall is awesome. I've heard it's going to be the biggest mall in the USA by the time it's finished with renovations. And I can definitely see why. It has everything you need under one roof. Great place to spend the day!
