Premiere upscale outdoor shopping mall, with the corner stores being Macy’s , Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. A few eateries scattered around the place. It gets busy unless you are early be prepared to find a parking spot.

I love shopping here. Lovely to stroll around just taking in the surroundings. Fabulous flowers and nice sitting areas all over the mall. All outdoors also, which I love.

Many different shops including brooks brothers. Prices in general did not look particularly attractive. It was so big. There were lots of sitting places but not much crowded.
