One of my favorite hang out place while in the Irvine area. It caters to the nice weather in Orange County with it's open mall with shops and restaurants. There is a very nice movie theater, arcade for the kids, and occasionally they have entertainers. This is a kid friendly spot and does not have the crowded feel of other... More

The Irvine Spectrum is one of the best when it comes to shopping, dining and entertainment. It has it all. Beautiful area. Lots of shops. Amazing restaurants to dine at and also an awesome movie theater that includes IMAX. It's a must visit when your in the Irvine area.

Irvine Spectrum basically has it all - fast food restaurants, fine-dining, retail shops, department stores, carousel rides, movie theater, etc. The mall has complimentary wi-fi which was pretty neat since we're only tourists and we needed some means of communicating with each other after we're done with shopping. We arrived lunch time and went home around 5 pm.

We'd been to the spectrum a few times in the previous years we'd been to OC. Not too large. It has a train, carousel, and Ferris wheel for the kids to enjoy. Many outdoor... More

The Spectrum is great. Lots a of things to do with children, including Ferris Wheel, train, and carousel. Of course all these cost money, and you can get tickets at any of the customer service booths. Near the Target, there is a splash pad that is open during summer. Other fun things include a 4D ride, Dave and Busters, Improv... More

This shopping center is pretty cool. Has plenty of parking that has signs that alert you to open spaces. Lots of great food like the cheesecake factory, veggie grill, and hello kitty cafe. Plus many others. Good shopping selection too although I was disappointed the skechers store didn't stock women's size 11. Loved the ferris wheel. Good place to get... More
