Great mall with almost any store you could want. There is a fun play area for small kids when they are needing a break from the stroller. Good store layouts. Large food court with something for everyone. We like to drop by the pet store and check out the puppies, which is close to cheesecake factory, so it is a fun ticket to do if there is a long wait.
This is a great indoor mall. There are tons of fabulous stores for the entire family. The few times that we have made it up there, it has been very crowded though. The parking can pose a challange too. If you have small children, like I do, it can be a little overwhelming. If you have older children, they will be in heaven with all the trendy shopping available. There are pleny of sales to go around. There are also many food vendors and resteraunts to eat at, so you can make a whole day of it.
I always go to this mall when i need to go shopping. I can easily find parking near Macy's without fighting for it. I enter through Macy's and there is Sees Candy on my immediate right. This store has great chocolates and the prices are better than Godiva. The stores are all lined up next to each other without the annoying steps of Scottsdale Fashion Mall. There are several escalators and the elevators are at each end of the mall. The mall is shaped generally like a big L and the mall is two floors. This means that it has all the basic stores without being too big. As would be expected, it is crazy around the holidays but still not as crowded as the other malls in the valley. Overall, my favorite mall in the east valley of AZ.
As malls go, this one has got to be our family's favorite. It has the regular department stores and a great food court, plus family favorites like Cheesecake Factory and Cold Stone Creamery. There is a huge Barnes & Nobles with a great children section. But what sets it apart for our children is the indoor playground area (our toddlers love it), plus a great selection of children's store: the Lego Store, Build-A-Bear, Pottery Barn Kids, a comic book store, a video game store, a game store, a pet store. We can spend hours there. there's also a Harkins movie theater, a musical dancing fountain outside.
