Well, Minneapolis has the largest and most famous mall in the country.

The NY and LA areas probably have the best malls.

I think the best malls are in the Los Angeles Area

South Coast Plaza (3rd Largest Mall in US by little)
Fashion Island
Americana at Brand
Santa Monica Place
Hollywood and Highland
Beverly Center
The Grove
Westfield Topanga Complex
Victoria Gardens

those are some of my favorites

My bias actually voted for Houston, so lets pretend that Dallas-Fort Worth has one extra point.

Minneapolis might have the Mall of America and the first enclosed mall in the country, but is in no way the mall capital.

MOA is the ;argest in total sq footage if you include the amusement park etc. KOP in suburban Philadelphia is the largest on the basis of retail sq footage

Quote:
The King of Prussia Mall is the largest shopping mall on the East Coast of the United States,[2] and largest shopping mall in the United States of America in terms of leasable retail space
King of Prussia Mall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not sure that makes anything a capital

They are also building a huge outdoor mixed use complex next store

Office & Retail Space in King Of Prussia PA | Shopping Center | Retail Mall

Sadly this complex dilutes some of the DT shopping for Philly, IMHO a bad thing

I chose LA. I think you should have added Miami and Atlanta to your poll.
