  • A good place to walk around and shop (or window shop). The restaurants are very varied in price, concept, and flavor. There are stores for pretty much anything you could need: stationary, skincare, clothes, books (even a Whole Foods!). It is very dog-friendly, most stores leave water bowls outside their shops for our canine friends and will sometimes give them treats. Over-all a good place for an afternoon stroll.
  • Great place to visit during nice weather. Many shopping options including fancy restaurants. Good for family. I took my out of town guests and they had a great time. It must visit place atleast once. Prices can be more expensive than a regular mall but you paying for location. I would recommend it.
  • The Domain is a twenty-first century, open air, shopping-living mall. City planners designed The Domain as an idealized small American town with big city opportunities. In other words, Main Street Disneyland... perfected. This development may be the future of city life in middle America. I'm told over six thousand people live in apartments over and next to the mall. Everything is in walking distance: entertainment, restaurants, the Tesla store and popular fashions at moderate prices. There is even a fountain, built into the sidewalk, that squirts you with cool water on hot Texas days. Parking is easy and everything is wheelchair accessible.
  • Truly everything for everyone. There are great open spaces for kids to run and play in. Bars and restaurants for the older crowd (as opposed to 6 street crowds). Good restaurants, for the meat eaters all the way to truly vegan and healthy. And of course - all the pricey brands you've come to expect.
  • What an amazing place! Who knew that you could just live at the mall? That is essentially what the Domain is. It is an outdoor mall, but with apartments that you can either rent or purchase up above. They have Parks, public spaces, outdoor games and other activities. This shopping area is very busy. If you park in one of the parking garages, you will have lots of room, and easy access to the shopping. Check the mail before you venture out, it's easy to get turned around. They have great food and many local restaurants.
