“Scary, Crowded, and unsafe. Nice selection of diners though.”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The very large highway sign just outside of this mall flashes the message: "HIDE YOUR THINGS, LOCK YOUR CARE, TAKE YOUR KEYS" 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. The mall has lots to offer in the way of dining and shopping, but yikes! Walking around is life threatening with all the vehicle traffic. Parking spaces are very small. My rental car got damaged twice there during my two week stay in Arlington. It must be the "place to be" for the locals because you couldn't find a parking space within a half mile of the place in the evenings and on Saturday night. Crazy! Too much for this old Idaho boy. And yes, if you're a local, I did go back to Idaho.

“Nice shopping spot...”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This is an awesome shopping center. All of the stores have outdoor entries. I like the fact that this is not a "mall" setting. I like knowing that I'm safer in this type of shopping spot than our malls here in the Pacific Northwest.

“Wonderful and Unique Outdoor Mall.”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Pro's:
- wide variety of stores- restaurants, boutiques, jewlelry, etcetera
- mostly (I think) small businesses
- plays music onto the sidewalks- which are mostly shaded and wide enough for strollers
- in middle of parking lots, have a green space with benches and a stream

Con's
- parking can be difficult, especially on the weekends.

“The Arlington Highlands”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This is such a great place to shop and dine. The kids love going! Studio movie grill is so much fun and tons of paces to eat and of course Dave and Buster's is a must. It's so beautiful with its fountains and at night it's a romantic little walk and Yes there are sidewalks everywhere and we love walking from place to place.
