This isn't a high-end mall but it does have a lot of "essential" stores and restaurants (and movie theatre). You'll need to go to Scottsdale if you want Neiman-Marcus and higher end restaurants etc.

Sprawling outdoor mall that spans blocks with familiar huge stores like Target, Lane Bryant, Dress Barn, and more. Shop in the evening if you want to store-hop because it is cooler.

Nice and cool. All the games we played were working. No issues there. Purchased the unlimited play for $50 - unfortunately she did not tell us it was for only certain machines. Would never have purchased it then. Went on a Wednesday so games were 1/2 off.

Very popular with students and most of the stores offer student discounts if you ask. It is an outdoor mall, but during the day, misters are on to help cool off the walkway. Beautiful pace and very clean, I love shopping here.

We had been on a long trip sight seeing ruins and canyons. So the last night we took a stroll through this beautiful outdoor mall. There are lots of spray misters to keep you cool no matter where you walk. The restaurants are all grouped together. They had a lot of nice comfortable outdoor seating areas to people watch. They...
