The mall is an open mall which was fun to walk around this time of the year, the planters were beautiful!!! There is a variety of stores and restaurants, something for everyone.

“only wonderful in Summer!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

I love to go to Arbor Lakes in the summer!! There is music planning and flowers and ponds and lots of people, I go there and walk alot.....
In the winter months I avoid it!! it is outside and people have to walk a long ways from the parking lots to get to any of the store doors!!
I say only in the summer!

“Shops that range from upscale to budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

This is a great location and easy to find. Hotels within walking distance. Shops that cater mostly to women and teens. They tend to be upscale but there are reasonable boutiques there also. Variety of types of shops from clothing to electronics. Several places to eat mixed in the shopping area and surrounding the shops. Movie theater nearby. Summer concerts. A great place to sit in the commons area and people watch. Beautifully decorated. The stores are very service oriented staffed with helpful workers. Quite enjoyable when the weather is nice!!!

“Not much they don't have but it's cold going store to store”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2011

The Shoppes are a great place to go if you know exactually what you want as you don't have to walk all over a HUGE mall but on the downside, going store to store is all outside so it can get a bit cold. Also, you can't really park in front of the store you want to go to if you just want to hit one so it's a little bit of a walk. Nice area though and they have some good variety of shops and lots of good places to eat near by. If you can't find it somewhere in the Vast Maple grove shopping area, you don't need it.

“This place has a little of everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2011

There are so many shops in this shopping center that there is a little of something for everyone. Whether you are looking for food, shopping, or a movie this place has it. There are also practical shops here and then the ritzy higher end type stuff as well. I come here quite often during the summer though you need to watch out for all the tweens and teens running around. Some parents use it as a day care center. They do have good security around so most of the bad behavior is kept in check. The park like atmosphere in between the shops is a great place just to sit hang out too because the sounds of the fountains drowns out the sounds of the nearby highway.
