Great spot with plenty of shopping and dining options. Just stopped on my way through, but would definitely come back again.

So - we didn't plan to come to Destiny USA on our trip to Syracuse. We didn't even know that - somehow - this small city is host to one of the largest shopping malls in the country. So we walked in not knowing what we were getting into. As we explored deeper and deeper into the mall - past the movie theaters, go kart track, multiple arcades, ropes course, numerous "experiences" and destination restaurants, we were more amazed at every turn. Primarily, we were overcome at a creepy question of how such a wildly out-of-scale shopping mall could ever be constructed here. Turns out, its half a billion dollars in debt, which explains the facts, if not the reasoning. And the large number of vacancies suggest some mistakes were made.

We spent an oddly enjoyable amount of time in the arcades, ate in the food court, and went to a move - none of which was in the vacation plan.

So much to do, and not crowded at all. We spent half a day here and probably only saw 15% of it. Felt safe and modern. Had a fun time doing escape room with the teens. Endless activities to do at this place.

What a place!!! This place is amazing. My family and I had a blast. We originally went to Wonderworks but then found out that they have restaurants, stores and more fun to be had. We spent about five hours and didn’t make it to the other side of the mall. Definitely returning.

Drove almost 2 hours to come here cause online said the Disney store was open, got here and of course it was closed. Not going to waste my time ever again, never coming back.

we were able to get there with only 40mins. left until it was closed so we just walked the 2 main floor and the basement with 5 shops and we were able to do it all in that time frame. We were not able to go into any of the store because of the lack of time ( which all the stores did close right at 7!!!) BUt with that said we have 2 malls near us and this mall has everything our two mall have the only stores we don;t have that this place has is a 'hot tub, it's sugar, & armaini Stores'. So nothing as a huge draw there other than the gaming upstairs.

Nice Mall but failing with this pandemic. They have fully prepared and put up excellent precautions to protect everyone. However no one regulates them and security says nothing when mutiple groups walk around without a mask or failing to wear it properly. I'm very discouraged to return.

Visited the area and got to walk the entire mall, all floors. Was not there to shop bit I did eat in its food court. Place is huge and easy to get lost in with its main and offshoot corridors. Effort was made to establish one way pedestrian traffic in mall during the pandemic but it was not enforced. Pedestrian bridge over Hiawatha Blvd leads to a parking lot but one still needs to walk outdoors to access the nearby Embassy Suites hotel.

Huge mall with tons of stores and lots of entertainment. There were some COVID related closures as expected. Everyone wore masks. Nice place to shop and have fun.

Destiny Mall is too big for its own good. Its sad to see such a staple of the area fall apart. So many going out of business and store closing signs. If you're looking for some great deals, now is the time to go. While they are doing their best to follow the guidelines with a Covid restricted world, the directories are shut off, and traffic pattern is altered inside. Its a little confusing. I feel for the employees who may not make it out if this with a job....
