Mill Avenue is all about college students and as the night goes on, the drunker they get. Not a family destination and watch out for fights.

I went to school at ASU, so I've been on Mill at night a few times and each time it was a shady experience. It's crowded, with people drinking at bars and going to clubs, and dirty. All the guys are creeps. This is one place I fear to walk alone at night. I would literally like to go anywhere but Mill. 0/10, would not recommend.

Mill ave. is an interesting and fun place to eat shop and walk around. It is not a place that I would send young teenagers to alone as there are homeless and druggies that hang around sometimes. It could occupy you for an hour or two. It is great if you are into the bar scene.

This is a great place to go - plenty of restaurants and shopping. It's also just a nice place to walk around and smell the fresh desert air. We stopped in for some ice cream and just enjoyed the day.

Mill Avenue is a good time. Plenty of restaurants, little shops to explore, and it's a really pretty walk. On the holidays it's packed, and they have a lot of events down there that people migrate to.

While it's a bit crowded for us during the events or holidays, the young people really love it and have fun with their friends. We go during more relaxed times, and we enjoy it.

For the college crowd, it's the place to be to meet people and hang out. There is a lot of variety for eating and drinking. Good place to take a date or have lunch.
