Somewhat pretentious open-air mall, with many "prestige" national names. Went there several times and could not find anything worthwhile to purchase except lunch as the prices are generally high; can see why it attracts trend-followers with $$. Parking is iffy.

Don't know if this mall is new but it is very empty. No food court. A handfull of sit down restaurants. Limited restrooms. A very cool, big comic store with a wide variety of items. A must visit for collectors. Dave and Buster's is always a plus for families.

It's good to get there to buy average stuff (major brands). Good prices, average quality.
Parking lot is quickly full on Saturday afternoon.
No interesting places to eat & drink there (according to me).
I prefer Carlsbad the Forum (but it's another scale)

Maybe it was the time of year but the deals were scarce. Check the store listings in advance and focus your time.
