  • My hubby and I took a ride on the Great Wheel and it was quite fun. For about $10 each, we got some really nice views of the surrounding Irvine area and a brief break from the kids (they were in the c...  more »
  • If your'e already enjoying a day at the Spectrum, might as well top it off with a ride on the Giant Wheel. Yes it pretty much gives an aerial view of shopping center rooftops and other terra cotta/bei...  more »
  • A simple attraction within this huge mall area. Little kids may appreciate it, but nothing that will grab the attention of grown ups.

  • A nice outdoor mall with plenty of shops and things to do. Parking is surprisingly easy even though I went during peak hours on Saturday. They even have the merry go round and other carnival stuff in the middle of the mall. It's a really fun way to spend a weekend with your family. The design was quite nice too, and apparently it was inspired by a place somewhere in Spain (my friend noticed it). Even if you don't plan to shop, it's fun to just walk around the outdoor shopping mall while enjoying LA sunny weather. At least that's what I did :)
  • Beautiful and expansive outdoors mall. A nice place to wander on a lazy Saturday or Sunday. Majority of the shops here are chain stores, nothing unusual or unique. The restaurants are all chains as well but there are some better quality ones like Javier's. The carousel and ferris wheels are interesting attractions for the family.
  • Enjoy the outdoor atmosphere. There's something for everyone family and friends to enjoy. With do much in one place you can make a day of it or once you know your way around, you can pop in a store and be on the 5 or 405 in a flash. Don't forget the IMAX theater!
  • It has everything you want in an outdoor mall. Great food and shops, consistently renovating/improving, and new vendors are always coming in. They recently revamped parking and installed electronic billboards that advertise new additions. This is what I consider to be the hub of Irvine.
  • I have been going here since I was little and it is always fun. A pretty large outdoor shopping mall with every kind of store you would need. Great food as well as a movie theater and desserts. There is also a Dave and Buster's and a Target.
