Lots of Stores to visit. Everything under one roof. Good variety, some Factory Outlet stores and some smaller shops, lots of places to eat. We spent a few hours just browsing. Bought a couple of things and went for a meal. You could spend a day shopping if that's what you really want to do. For us it was just... More

Potomac Mills is only about five miles from where we live. It is a very nice place to shop at a wide variety of "factory outlet" stores if--and this is a BIG IF--you go on a weekday or maybe even a weekday evening. Unless, you love big crowds, avoid the place on the weekends--lots of tour bus groups, huge extended... More

Many factory outlet stores and a few non-outlet stores mixed together. Good variety of stores. Only downside is the layout. Done in a linear layout, getting from one end to the other takes a bit of time and effort. Easily a half day outing, probably more if you are truly shopping and not just browsing in a few stores.

We go from time to time but every visitor we get wants, needs to go to Potomac Mills especially foreign friends. They can't believe the quantity, variety, and prices. Plus there is a great COSTCO and IKEA just outside the mall. Lots of places to eat, a cinema with 8 theaters.... We have literally dropped them off at 9:30 am... More

I'm not a mall person, but this is a great mall to find something in. The food court has alot of choices, but is hot and crowded all the time.

Lot of nice shops but can get really crowded on the weekend but the sales. Food and movies are worth putting up with the crowd. Park on back side of All things baby, near Penny's and walk. BAHAMA Breeze is good this time of year.

Way too crowded and very hard to find a parking spot, especially in the evening. They keep it clean and it has good stores, but I avoid this place. They need a parking garage or something. Woodbridge messed up by allowing so many businesses in such a small area (i.e. IKEA right there too)

OMG. This is the biggest mall I have seen. It is really nuts. But you have an all deluxe candy shop and and an ice cream shop. But then for the gamers, there is a GameStop. For the people who break there phone, there is a stand that fixes your phone for you. But for the people who came to... More

This mall is a great shopping center, however it does get very crowded. The foot traffic inside can almost be overwhelming.
