When my kids were younger, sometimes they would ask me to take them there just to walk around and watching other kids playing around. While other malls have always make me feel overwhelmed with big groups of tourists speaking loudly in different languages, this mall, however, is a good place for a quick stroll with my children after a hectic...

The Spectrum is a beautiful place to hang.....for locals and travelers alike. There are some great restaurants, theatres and a comedy club if you're there in the evening. An 'entertainment' center for the teens and a ton of shopping, from fairly low-end to fairly high-end. Easy to find, where the 5 and the 405 meet in Orange County.

Locations of stores are confusing. Maps at information displays are confusing. Not easy for occasional shoppers. It looks like you always park at the parking lot far away from the store you want to go to

Crowded shopping area...restaurants, coffee shops and foods stands are over price. Unfriendly staff most of the times. Was a good place to walk, relax enjoy an afternoon drinking tea or coffe. Today is a place to go to the movies only due to overcrowding. One good thing - pet friendly!

Lots of shopping opportunities. While I'm not really interested in a long shopping adventure, they have diversions. I like the game room in Dave and Busters. Or taking in a new movie at Edwards Cinema while the women go shopping. Plenty of parking, although the lower levels fill up fast. Several restaurants to choose from.

I like this place anything I can find for entertainment either movies or restaurant all here if your choice. We are lunch at WoodRanch - their burgers and baby back ribs are so delicious and worth trying for. Surely this restaurant is recommended for friends

Used to love to stroll and shop here but something has changed. The seating areas have been taken over by large groups of people who sit there forever and never move!! I dont even take visiting friends and family there any more. A real shame.
