This is quite the mall as it has tons of restaurants, shops, activities and entertainment for everyone in your family. As far as shopping, it has the same old stores you'd find in any mall. Very few stores are unique or different than the malls in Rochester, NY and for this reason, I would not go out of my way... More

Having not been here since it was first opened as Carousel Mall almost 30 years ago, I was curious about what all the big to-do was about. We had as much time as we want to look around and I'm so glad we did. Wow! We didn't do any of the more 'amusement park' things, but now that we know... More

As a local resident I may be bias when I say this, but Destiny is arguably the best mall in New York State. Not only does the mall have a variety of stores it also boosts a hearty amount of entertainment venues for adults and kids alike. You can spend the day shopping or enjoy some attractions with your kids.... More

With all the talk of Mall closing their stores closing this was a great Mall. Very well laid out very convenient in Syracuse. If you need the shop and Syracuse this is the place to go.

Destiny Center is more than a shopping mall. It is truly an area attraction, and it just keeps getting better. It has all the best stores, restaurants, and now lots of attractions for folks looking for fun and games. The obstacle/ropes course is AMAZING! Come and plan to spend the day.

Destiny USA is definitely one of the top spots to hit when traveling to Syracuse! It's not just about shopping! Although there are many 'unique shops' to purchase 'one of a kind ' items among the familiar shops. You'll find that Destiny USA offers an amusement park experience for all ages from go-carts to rope climbing or adventures such as... More

There's the old mall connected to the new mall with a smattering of restaurants and entertainment in between. There's really something for everyone. Enjoy your favorite mall haunts as well as several outlet stores. Several large anchor stores including Lord and Taylor, Macy's and At Home. Many large restaurants including Cheesecake Factory and Dave and Busters. Wonder works is great... More
