This is a nice outdoor mall. The stores are nice with a lot of variety. Their are large anchor stores as well as smaller specialty shops.

Met friends at this mall today.

This is our first visit to this shopping area and was extremely pleased.

There are upscale specialty stores as well as some larger anchor tenants such as Macy's, Sears, Nordstrums.

We enjoyed our visit in the Kiehl's skin care store. Very nice products and well informed, yet not pushy staff. They listened to our skin concerns and offered some solutions, but did not, in any way make us feel obligated to purchase. No need when the products sale themselves.

The open air walkways are spacious, extremely clean, and welcoming with plenty of seating for weary shoppers.

Parking garages and surface parking seem adequate and safe.

The variety of restaurants are plentiful and inviting to just about any pallette.

We look forward to visiting again next time we are in town.

When I first heard about this mall, I was skeptical. I thought it would be a bunch of high end stores you go to with your girlfriends and leave the kids at home, and I was so wrong.

They have a great mix of stores for everyone! There is a Nordstrom but also a Sears, a fancy jewelry store but also a wonderful toy store.

They have a play area for the kids as well as family areas where you can warm up a bottle for your baby, nurse, or just give the little ones a break with tv and puzzles. Large family restroom also available.

The food court had a great selection. They also have wonderful desserts and candy shops available throughout the mall.

The only downside is we happen to be here when San Diego/ La Jolla are experiencing some terrible weather so our trips keep getting cut short because it is outdoors.

Many shops, both high end to mid-level to visit. Friendly environment and open stores even at 9pm. Eureka was wonderful and the live musician was outstanding!

Love going for lunch, so much to chose from in the food court, taking it out to the patio and enjoying the live music. Living in San Diego lends itself to sunshine with a slight breeze typically. Perfect! ☀️
