This is a relatively easy way to do a fair amount of shopping in one place without worrying about finding parking. There is a large Target that is well stocked, but VERY busy with students. There is also a fairly well stocked Total Wine and a decent variety of standard "mall stores". If you are stuck living in this area,... More

A very nice mall with a variety of store. We shopped at Best Buy, Old Navy, Famous Footwear, ate at a couple of restaurants. Easy to get around. Shuttle to the Cubs games during spring training. Some the restaurants give discounts when you bring your same day ticket stubs.

Cool place to hang out, but that's about it. There's stores like in any other shopping plaza/center or mall, like Ross, petsmart, etc... and few restaurants. The only good thing about this place is the free local concerts. For high end restaurant, I suggest to visit Scottsdale.

This is a very decent and nice place to shop and dine with friends and family. A variety of good restaurants and stores. After dinner, you can go to see a movie, too. Nice coffee and ice-cream shop near the movie theater. Having a nice walk in the beautiful Arizona weather is another plus.

Restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Very large and spread out, so it is a little difficult finding places here unless you know the approximate location

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.
