“Great Mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This mall was recommended by hotel staff and it was a great recommendation. It is a beautiful, clean indoor/outdoor mall. They have great shops and the kids couldn't believe all they had. There was a disney/carnival atmosphere and lots of fun food. This is a nice (albeit potentially expensive) diversion!

“Great place to shop, hang out, people watch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

Shopping with teens lots of selection. Extremely busy, parking is a premium very busy in summer. Listened to live music performance, a cold drink and watched people go by.

“Our Go To meeting place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

When on holiday, I spend time between Bakersfield and San Diego with my daughters and their family. I either fly into SAN or LAX, but in any event at some point in time we meet and one of my daughters hands me off to the other. And we select the Irvine Spectrum Center to accomplish this.

Plenty of department stores and restaurants to spend a few hours and relax. The Ferris wheel anchors the center and makes for a good landmark to meet up if we separate. It's pleasant and the SoCal climate makes it perfect year round!
