Well i currently live five minutes from the mall. I dunno..i could take it or leave it. I prefer Kingsway for actual shopping. Or Mayfield common...
When i go there, i obviously don't go to the attractions. I went once last year to the waterpark with some friends and the chlorine is so strong, my eyes were red for days! And no, thats not the booze talking! LOL>
But seriously, its fine. I don't approach it in the same way. When I go, i know exactly what i am going for, where my stores are and the quickest way to get there, in and out.
My favorite phase is probably phase 1 top floor, followed by parts of phase four (the movie theater/chapters area) and the top floor of phase three. I also like bourbon street because there is always a restaurant that i like. Im glad they cleaned it up, but gah, could they have picked worse colours??? (*those that live here know what i am talking about).
But as it stands, it is still technically the largest mall in the world. Mall of America is the largest in the interior USA.
