Need advice. I'm moving to the Raleigh area and would like to impress some out of town business associates who love upscale shopping. I'm familiar with The Streets at Southpoint (love the whole indoor mall/main street concept) and the stores were very nice....the area was nice also. I've heard of the Triangle Town Center but haven't had a chance to see that area. Which mall and area of town would be more impressive?? Streets at Southpoint or Triangle Town Center? Thank you for any advice you can give.

Streets at Southpoint is definitely the most "impressive" in terms of ambiance.

Crabtree Valley may be the best bet for true "shopping" though it wont score many style points.

Triangle Town Center doesn't excite me much either...

Thanks for the advice. I did get to see Crabtree Valley and it seemed older and the area was so congested the day I visited. I was highly impressed with Streets at Southpoint. Durham is a beautiful area. Again, thanks for the reply!!

Streets of Southpoint is better beyond a reasonable upscale store! No comparison. Triangle Town is small, poor food court, no movie theaters and hardly ever crowded. Other than that the Triangle Town still comes in 2nd! Now let me tell you how I feel about Triangle Town afterthought. Just an opinion......

That's a hard call. I'd throw in Crabtree Valley Mall too. I am a huge mall buff and honestly I'm not impressed with any of the local malls but my preference is Streets of Southpoint. I know Triangle Town Center has a Saks, but honestly I don't find it that impressive (e.g., they have an Ann Taylor Loft instead of an Ann Taylor). None of the malls here have all upscale anchors (i.e., I think they all have Sears). I guess I'm spoiled from living in Tysons Corner, VA.

Streets of Southpoint is by far the nicest mall. Cameron Village and North Hills are both very nice upscale shopping centers worth a look. I probably prefer Crabtree Mall to Triangle Town Center overall. The outside part of TTC just pales in comparison to SoS.

I'm with SLS. I like Streets of Southpoint and Crabtree but none of the malls really impress me as truely upscale. There's an upscale anchor or two at the two malls, but what really impresses for me and others are the speciality retailers. Those would be Louis Vuitton, Juicy, True Religion, Cole Haan, St John, Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein, Coach, Tiffany, Kate Spade, BCBGMaxAzaria, PUMA, Betsey Johnson, etc. Raleigh-Durham doesn't have much of that save for Cole Haan, Coach and the Louis store which actually apart of Saks.

Here? No. But I would consider Tysons Galleria in VA and The Westchester to be impressive.
