You must make time for this even if you don't want to shop. It's a unique experience and beautiful place to relax. The green had a live band next to the water fountain. There is a trolley to take you around. Lots of places to eat and hang out. Good stores. We loved it.

The first reason why I visited the mall is that the place where mobbed show first episode was shot. The place was stunning and fabulous. The shops were varies from middle to high end. Nice restaurants and movie theater is there therefore it was a nice area to visit and have fun.

The Grove has nothing on this gem in Glendale CA. It starts with a grand piano in the lobby of the parking garage and gets better from there. Dancing Fountains, a beautiful park, a free train, and a 3 story Barnes and Nobles with an outdoor patio that overlooks it all. Great restaurants, wonderful vibe, and mostly locals gives it a delightful feel.

We have lived in Glendale for 39 years and visit the Americana almost weekly, usually to see a movie at the very nice Pacific 18 theatre. The place is always clean and beautiful.

This outdoor shopping center is in the style of a small town main square. The square is a grassy quad with a water feature in the style of the Bellagio dancing fountains (Las Vegas). The stores are typically high-end-- Tiffany's, Apple Store. Its a great place to go for a dinner (Cheesecake Factory, Frida's) and a movie, and add a quick visit to Barnes and Noble to peruse the books. I like to take the kids there for a matinee, and have quick crepe while the kids romp in the adjacent jungle gym set in sand. This mall is far from ordinary. I always recommend that my visiting friends have a look at it. Its also worth a weekly visit, if you are a local!
