Both of these areas have a lot of upscale dense sprawl... if you're seen it/experienced it, you know the feeling. They both have it on large scales... Imagine high end shopping with a lot of parking, and nice housing continuously for miles. Which other places in the US have this?

Northern Virginia (Greater Washington D.C.), Dallas' northern suburbs (Greater Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex), nearly all of Palm Beach County (Greater Miami/Fort Lauderdale), northern suburbs of Denver (Greater Denver), and the western suburbs of Houston and Chicago (Greater Houston and Greater Chicago).

You could even throw in northern New Jersey (Greater New York), the suburbs located between San Francisco and San Jose and/or the suburbs located between Oakland and San Jose (Greater San Francisco Bay Area), and the western suburbs of Detroit (Greater Detroit) into the mix as well if you wanted.

Charlotte and Raleigh? Although I wouldn't say Raleigh's THAT bad. Sure will be soon though.

Scottsdale, AZ and the East Valley in general remind me more of Palm Beach County, FL and western Broward County, FL than south Orange County, CA due to the generally flat terrain, the grid street plan and the overall lack of quaint areas. The downtown areas of Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente as well as the Lantern District of Dana Point are still relatively quaint by Sun Belt and especially AZ/FL standards.

The only rival to South Coast Plaza on this list of the most productive malls in the country would be Aventura.
