    Department store heaven for shoppers. Fashion Valley is probably the most well known mall in San Diego for the wide variety of stores it has. Has some high end brand name designer stores as well. Great food options for sitdown as well as the food court. Movie theater. Plenty of parking and the trolley right there as well for accessibility.

    Wow! I've never seen a mall quite like this before! All the best stores and because it's Southern California they can make it completely open air! Really nice.

    This mall has really high-end shops & is a lot of fun to explore! A lot of department stores and designer outlets. Parking can be tough but it's worth the wait. Try some if the amazing restaurants such a True Food Kitchen!

    Though sometimes it feels overwhelmingly big and parking can be a huge pain, this is my favorite mall in San Diego. The selection is excellent (you have everything from cheap fast-fashion stores to mid-range priced fashion stores to luxury boutiques) and it will take you a long time before you get bored here. There's almost too much to browse through. On top of that, Fashion has the best food court I've seen in San Diego (plus nicer sit-down restaurants), and a big theater on one end. It's huge and open/outdoors, so it's extremely walk-able.

    Best mall in San Diego. Lots of high end stores here, like Hermes, LV, Gucci, etc, along with several large department stores and a crate & barrel.

    the Fashion Valley Mall is a really great outdoor mall that has very interesting people flow strategies with its foot bridges and escalator that criss cross and zig zag throughout the mall.

    Fashion Valley Shopping Center is perhaps the premiere shopping mall in San Diego County. It is centrally located to be accessed from all parts of San Diego, and because it is near Hotel Circle, where perhaps 20 diferent hotels are located for tourists, it has a lot of tourists visiting, too.

    The mall is huge, and it has gone much more upscale than in the past. So it has a lot of designer boutique stores that both locals and tourists alike can enjoy.

    So if you are used to South Coast Plaza (Orange County), Union Square (San Francisco), Valley Fair/Santana Row (San Jose), Ala Moana (Honolulu), Stanford (Palo Alto) or similar upscale malls from where you are from, you'll be happy to be shopping here when you are on vacation.

    PS - Because it is in a location with great weather year round, it is not enclosed, but open to the air, giving you less of a clausterphobic feeling.

    Great outdoor shopping mall centrally located in Mission Valley. Has a wide of clothing stores and restaurants, as well as an AMC theater. Great place to go on an all day shopping spree, expecially on a sunny day.

    Fashion Valley has added quite a few high end stores over the past few years. It's an outdoor mall which is typical in San Diego, has an AMC movie theater and lots of options at the food court.

    I've never been very fond of this mall, but I'm not exactly sure why. Perhaps the ambience is not as enjoyable as Horton Plaza (for me, at least), but there is the added bonus of an 18-screen movie theater...although that makes parking a nightmare. Fashion Valley has some of the best retail shopping in San Diego, with top brand names including Gucci, Coach, and Juicy Couture. The shopping center is only open until 9 during the week, though, and 7 on Sundays.

    I went just so that I could say that I did. This mall is not for the person with the small pockets.

    So I am not a huge fan of malls, but as malls come, this one is alright. In no way would I put Fashion Valley on my San Diego vacation agenda, but if you need to get a shopping fill, this is the ONLY mall I would suggest. With a pretty big Nordstroms, Jcrew, Banana, Anthropologie, a movie theatre, etc. it does pretty well for itself.

    Not that bad of a mall... it would be better if it had a cinnabon though (does it? i don't remember seeing one). all the other fancy shmancy stuff there reminds me of being back home in the south bay...
    minus one star for making me home sick.
