  • We aren't really into shopping, so we just hit the places that we found interesting or we don't have at home. Overall it's a beautiful place.  more »
  • It is a shopping in full mile magnificent, so visit it is not too much. Surely you pass by without having to go especially. It is very cute and has shops all around, it is not necessarily indicated to leave shopping and save as the Premium Outlet. It has a nice food square and a very good Lego store.

  • The place that developed the idea of the vertical Mall. Stuff is kinda upscale. This is not the place to get bargains. But I like the food court here a lot. If you are here with a crowd, each person can order whatever they want and your family can put it all on one card. I am surprised that the Garrett popcorn place is on the seventh floor rather than on street level. The anchor for this place being called the magnificent mile.
  • It’s a very nice mall with so many different stores. The Macy’s in this mall is huge, with over 7 floors. You can spend a whole day in this mall itself and not get bored. There is something for everyone here, because the variety is so wide. The mall staff is also very friendly.
