Arundel Mills is safe during the day, but as mentioned on here, not a good place to go at night. There is a huge theater there and decent food court.

When i lived in the area, I used to trek down to PM once in a while. The traffic on 95-S is a nightmare and the Prince William parkway always seemed to be congested. However, Potomac Mills is a nice mall and you also have a decent selection of restaurants nearby, in addition to an IKEA.

If you have time, Tyson's Corner would be worth a visit, but on weekends it can get packed and parking can be a challenge. I still stop by there, though when I am in the area visiting.

Fair Oaks and Dulles are also nice malls in NOVA, but are a but further out. Pentagon City is located just outside DC, but is easier to get to via Metro.

Landmark, isn't one I would go out of my way to go to.

In Maryland you have Columbia, Wheaton, Annapolis, Montgomery and Towson (a really nice mall if you are up to the ride to Baltimore)

While Bethesda Row is not a "mall" per se, it has a decent amount of upscale shopping and dining. Also, a new section was recently added.

I have a friend that manages one of the restaurants around the mall and he says the same thing, its bad at night and getting worse. If he wasn't making such good money he said he would leave in a heart beat. What's going to happen when the Casino gets built?

Yeah it's a little too easy for some of the people in the bad parts of DC and PG to get to. Out of NE dc, you could easily get there in 20-25 minutes with no traffic.

Potomac Mills is a bit further out, my family lived in Upper Marlboro and we would go there once a year to shop at the outlets, I remember the drive being quite long (2 hours maybe?). Are you specifically looking for outlets, or just a big malls? If outlets aren't a requirement, then Annapolis Mall, Columbia Mall, or Bowie Town Center might be a better option. I'm sure Montgomery County and Northern VA also have some good malls (Wheaton, Tyson's), but I haven't been to them in many many years.
I prefer going to outlets. I want to do bargain shopping.

I would stick with Potomac Mills then. Potomac Mills is a better shopping mall for bargains. Anne Arundel Mills is okay, but it doesn't have the selection that PM has.

Potomac Mills has oodles of other type stores in the immediate area as well as oodles of restaurants. If you can't find what you are looking for in that area, then it just might not exist.

Potomac Mills has a much better selection than Arundel Mills, although Arundel Mills is a newer and nicer mall. Potomac Mills has Lacoste outlet, Polo Ralph Lauren, True Religion, Neiman Marcus outlet, Tommy Bahama, Hollister and a few other stores that Arundel does not have.
