Tyson Corner is huge, it seemed like it never ended. Then there's another Tyson Galleria which is super upscale, the only store I could afford to shop in was Hallmark lol plus there is Macy's in both of them, mind you they are across the street from each other.

NorthPark Center architecturally in my opinion can not be beat. The mall's interior hasn't changed since it was built and 1965. The anchors include Macy's (flagship), Neiman-Marcus (competes with Neiman-Marcus Beverly Hills as the highest grossing store), Dillard's (flagship and the highest grossing store in the chain), Nordstrom, Barneys New York (flagship, the south's only store, and the 3rd largest store in the chain), and AMC Theatres 15. The mall is 2 million sq ft making it the 2nd largest mall in Texas (the Galleria Houston being the largest)

Anchor Size

Dillard's (299,500 sq ft)
Macy's (250,000 sq ft)
Nordstrom (200,000 sq ft)
Barneys New York (84,400 sq ft)
Neiman-Marcus (214,000 sq ft)
AMC Theatres 15 (88,000 sq ft)

Imo the Los Angeles area is tops with major malls and shopping districts.

There's something unique and beautiful about Northpark in Dallas. The Texas brick, the beautiful art on display, the fashion shows and the stores themselves make it a very pleasant sbopping experience.

Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale is also one of the top grossing malls in the country and one of my favorite.

Tyson's Corner Center, one of the tops in sales in the country and the Tyson's Galleria were my favorite when I lived in DC. Too bad downtown DC still lacks major shopping.

SANTANA ROW - SAN JOSE CALIFORNIA

I was very pleasantly surprised to find a gem of a mall in San Jose CA
It's called Santana Row I had never heard of it, specially since I live in LA but as I said it was really nice.
Basically is as if they built a mini town within San Jose, the place is big and made look old.
Not sure if open air malls are very common all over the states, but since California has very mild winters
the best malls here IMO are open air.

Shops and Restaurants
Santana Row offers a mix of high-end and mid-tier retail tenants, ranging from luxury brands like Gucci, Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Tourneau, to casual brands like Diesel, H&M, Ann Taylor LOFT, Anthropologie, Free People, and Urban Outfitters. Also on the row are restaurants ranging from local concepts like Left Bank Brasserie and sister restaurant LB Steak, Pizza Antica, and Blowfish, to chains like The Counter, Chili's, Maggiano's Little Italy, Wahoo's Fish Taco, and Pinkberry. The district is anchored by Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, and The Container Store, and was the home of a flagship Borders bookstore until the company's liquidation in 2011.


Don't forget All you see was built from scratch and new

Isn't Northpark Center in Dallas ranked as one of the top architecturally significant shopping centers in the world?

Also, Highland Park Village is the oldest shopping center in the U.S. with gorgeous spanish architecture and a nice outdoor shopping environment.

Just to name a couple spots in Texas.

* The Gallerias in Dallas and Houston are impressive in their own right as well.
