Great place to walk around. Expensive shops but some mid-market (Macy's, Gap etc.). Varied food options from inexpensive (Chipotle, Starbucks, California Pizza Kitchen, the Melt) to more expensive sit down places. Gorgeous flowers all over any time of year. Summer concerts (which are very crowded).

You can get whatever you need or desire here, and it's all very convenient. Try the Creamery for lunch--good food and ice cream.

Maybe the most beautiful shopping mall in the country, and perhaps the world. You can enjoy beautiful flowers all year round. It is almost like a park. Family oriented, lost of comfortable chairs for you or significant other wait for you while shopping, and/ or just to have a good cup of coffee and/or tea. Very safe place as well.

Lots of fine restaurants and decent shops. Wonderful mall but not so wonderful when it's cold or raining as it is an open air mall.
