As malls go, U Village is one of my least favorites. Not easy to get to, nearly impossible to find parking, which on the plus side saves you from the high prices you'll encounter in an uninspired collection of high-end chain stores. U Village used to be much more funky and real, and there are a few unique shops left,... More

I haven't been there in years I was so surprised to see all the pricy stores there. Not many of the local and quirky shops that used to be there.

This mall has changed a lot over the years. They've done a good job of making it look very modern. It looks very reminiscent of shopping centers that you would find in Orange County.

There are a lot of cool shops to browse. All of the employees we encountered were very polite and helpful. The overall layout of this place was well done.

Upscale outdoor mall that changes quite a bit over time. I have started going to this shopping mall ever since I was born and it has changed a lot since then. Interesting fact: 4 Starbucks in this shopping mall, so if you are meeting someone at a Starbucks here, be sure to determine which one. Plenty of free parking and... More

This outdoor shopping area is very nice to walk around in summer time..a lot of trees and water fountains and waterfalls....The stores are mostly expensive stuff.. But don't forget to stop at Ding Tai Fung to eat, and Menchies after that..

This is an upscale shopping area just down the hill from the University of Washington. Most of the stores are national brands (J Crew, Anthropologist, Crate and Barrel, etc), with a few local specialties. Fireworks is a gift shop that carries quirky, offbeat, artsy objects. No big department stores, but both an Apple and a Microsoft store across a parking... More
