  • I love Spectrum Center. But, they are under construction so some of the amenities my kids like have moved .I like the collection of stores and love that new Coffee Bean was open late so we could get a drink for the drive home. Everyone else seems to like Spectrum because parking was hard to find. A lot across the street offered free parking. We also heard live music. The artists were talented.
  • Nice mall with decent options for everything. By far my favorite mall. Great restaurant selection with many different options. The shops are overrated pretty good and the is plenty of parking, except by Target, that lot is always full. It's location is perfect to get to whatever freeway you want and just stop in for food and go if you want.
  • Very fun place to hang out. I love the Andalusian style design of the buildings. They are also open pretty late compared to other shopping centers in Orange County. Lots of people come here so you can have fun people-watching.
  • This is a great place to visit. There are many great stores and restaurants. But we probably go the most often for movies. Great theater. My biggest complaint is the parking and construction. They have not done a very good job with that. The parking structures have lights to indicate the number of open spots but the red green lights are often not accurate. They need to Patrol the parking lot and Service Roads better as we see people zooming through stop signs all the time. They also need to provide more electric vehicle charging stations and make them free as an incentive to promote carbon emission free driving. Go green!
  • We love Spectrum Center. However, they are under construction so some of the amenities my kids like have moved or suspended. I like the collection of stores and love that Coffee Bean was open late so we could get a drink for the drive home. Everyone else seems to like Spectrum because parking was hard to find. A lot across the street offered free parking. We also heard live music. The artists were talented.
