This mall is definitely for the consumers in Silicon Valley who have lots of discretionary income. Not for your average Californian. Even the sale prices are high.

They have everything from huge stores (Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, etc) to boutiques (Tiffany) to chains (Gap) to an array of eating places. We found one that only serves 6 varieties of hotdogs!

I’ve been to a lot of malls all over the country. This is easily the most beautiful. Amazing architecture, winding corridors and all outdoor. Amazing planning had to go into this sopping center. Highly recommendable.

Went here and walked around. The shopping center is huge! There are plenty of upper scale shops here. There is a nike store but it is running shoes. I enjoyed looking at the design of buildings and shops while walking around.
