This place basically just consists of a lot of malls, parking lots, bars, restaurants etc. All very American but I didn´t really get the atmosphere. Looks like any shopping area in the US so as a tourist, it´s not really worth visiting in my opinion. If you´re looking to do some shopping of having American food, this is a good... More

The kitsch is difficult to express, but one can understand how it plays to displaced Americans longing for home. It's got malls, parking lots, lots of lights, all kin of bars, ice cream places, restaurants, you name it. The cigar lounge,... More

This is a former US Military base, full of shops and a few restaurants. I don't really understand why this is considered an attraction, it's just another part of town, albeit an American one... Could be interesting if you haven't seen Americans before ...

Stopped off here before returning our hire car. Plenty of souvenir shops and places to eat. We visited the Art gallery to see the woodblock prints, bought a few souvenirs, ate ice-cream at the Blue Seal (service was very slow).

My friends took me here for dinner at one of the restaurants. It's a nice area for shopping and hanging out with friends. It's definitely geared toward Americans but it has a nice charm to it.

Great food, lots of shopping. Has the best views at sunset. There's something for everyone in American Village. A few of the stores have a lot of the same stuff, but it's a big enough place that it doesn't matter.
