This is the nearest outlet mall to the Silicon Valley. You will find many brand outlet stores that you will enjoy its prices.
It also has a large food court that matches most of tastes.

Just getting there was an experience with all the construction in the are surrounding the mall. I am giving it a average rating just because of all the different stores. But going into the mall area it looked like it was in need of a good cleaning. The floors were dirty. Then some of the kiosk workers had me looking hard at them several of those guys I saw working there had there pants hanging almost completely down there rear ends and the legs all bundled at their ankles and they were constantly pulling up their pants and talking on their cell phones.

Then we have the Food Court, again it was dirty the tables were not being clean off, cups and napkins laying on the floor. And if you eat there you had better enjoy Asian food since that is majority of the food court.

The mall itself is great as far as a one stop shop! But it lacks places to sit for people with disabilities or people with special conditions. This mall should be more family friendly for areas concerning parents with little kids as far as bathrooms and seating areas. That would make the mall that much better!

If you love shopping, take a few hours for this mall, at least. It's a very big mall so you really need to take your time. Not all the shops are great, but I definitely liked the Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein outlets. You can get great deals there. When you get hungry, you can go to the food court, where you can get many different kinds of food. Will definitely go back here when visiting the area!

We went to the great mall twice in a week for shopping. The whole family loved it. You can really pick up some good bargains if you have the time and patience. The mall gets really busy around lunch time. Some of the popular shops are Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale, American Eagle, Forever 21, Guess, Express, Old Navy, Converse.. Food court is really good, loads of international cuisine to choose from. Remember to get their for 10am opening time. You will find a parking spot and shops are empty.
