always gives locals a lift -- even charms my definitely non-shopping husband. Landscaping - flowers are unbelievable.

Really nice place, well kept and with the most important brand of the shopping. There are also coffees and reasturants, with several kind of food, so it's easy to spend there several hours.

The shopping is basically for women. I got disappointed so did my wife. Off course it isn’t a bad place. It is just no good for tourists.

Stanford shopping center is one of the few outdoor malls left. They employ talented landscapers for beautiful floral creations. The mall itself is an overpriced chain store zone. So skip the shopping and enjoy the dahlias, wisteria, roses, begonias and people watching. It's a lively suburban scene. Decent food choicees too.

It's a beautiful outdoor shopping center with gorgeous flowers throughout. Upscale stores and a fair number of restaurants.
