I find it odd that a mall doesn't open until 10 in the morning, but the Apple store there is great. They were very helpful and very efficient.

Very nice shopping center. Spacious and (very important) lots of places where there's (soft) seating! Nicely set up with planters and some outside eating areas. Ample parking. Good selection of shops.

It is a beautiful outdoor mall. The majority of the stores are adult or high-end. There are a few shops for tweens or teens but most would not be stores for someone on a budget.

Coming from the UK, we don't have shopping malls like this. I'm not even sure they have shopping malls like this anywhere! It's a great mix of restaurants, fast food, department stores, mostly boutiques and landscaped areas to sit. Very welcoming and you can find...More

Many years ago I was involved in leasing retail space here. I got some very good advice from an old hand who told me to let the center sell itself. "These people know what they want." It is to my mind the most conducive environment...More

This place offers a large selection of eating places, few gifts shops and adequate parking for automobiles. All sorts of cuisine available from a pizza parlour to fast food chains. From delicious cakes to a la crate menu.
