Some good places to eat, variety and even a NY and Co to go shopping and burn calories. Nails done and the theater before or after eating. And don't forget about desert at Cold Stone...yum

This is a beautiful outdoor shopping center. There is plenty of dining for sure. The shopping is lacking to date. But, if you're looking for a wonderful date night, you can have dinner, movie and a wonderful walk.

This is a small plaza in the middle of downtown. It is very near many places like the Civic Center, ASU, downtown hotels, Symphony Hall, Mercado, Heritage Square and many more. The Arizona Center has many places to eat, some shops and a theater. This is an excellent place to go if you are in the area and need to... More

Very attractive spot for a mid-range lunch and/or dinner meal. Dessert options, movie theater, and souvenir shop also in complex; at least one small gallery being installed. Beautiful particularly near sunset when palm trees are nicely illuminated. Walkable from conference center hotels and particularly close to the Sheraton. Would benefit from additional shopping.

My family visiting from out of town and I spent the morning at some of the museums in the area. At lunch we decided to walk to the Arizona center. We were surprised at how many store fronts were vacant. It was a pleasant place to walk around for about 10 minutes. We did eat, but then we left.

I stayed at the Sheraton across the street. The Arizona Center is nice for restaurants, but there's not much else. After two days, I'd pretty much tried all the restaurants (which are all pretty good). There's a lot of potential here. It was safe and pretty clean.

We were in town for the science fair and stayed across the street at the Sheraton. Arizona Center was our go to place. It had a nice assortment of restaurants ranging from Subway and Starbucks to nice sit-down restaurants like Cucina Cucina. It boasts a huge movie theater as well. The garden plaza behind the restaurants is a green oasis... More

We stopped in here to watch a movie, "Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot." The movie was great, seats were very comfortable. The mall has parking that is free and can be validated which we did not know. Good location in downtown Phoenix.
