Hoping to shop, play games or even see a movie this summer? Want to avoid driving all over town? Then you’re in luck; you can do all these things and more without having to drive to more than one location — at Arizona Mills.
I took a trip to Arizona Mills Mall recently with a group of friends and was dazzled by how much had changed in the past few years.
One of the new attractions is Sea Life Arizona. The bright colors and decorated store make you forget all about the Arizona heat, and allows you to cool off with your fishy friends. Even as you pass by, the windows are filled with small fish and marine plants that capture your attention.
After passing the aquarium, we strolled into the food court hoping to catch a quick bite before we shopped. The variety of food offered at the food court guarantees there is something for everyone to enjoy. Some of the choices included Paradise Bakery, Burger King and Panda Express. The Rainforest Café located is another option for your dining pleasure located in another part of the mall. And if your little ones can’t sit still, there is a carousel located near the seating so parents may watch their kids as they ride sea horses, rabbits and even zebras.
For those lucky parents with teenagers GameWorks is located across the way to offer another option. Past GameWorks is Harkins and IMAX leaving an opportunity to spend time as a family or a group of friends without roaming the entire mall.
My group quickly went out in search of summer deals after having a meal at the Panda Express. The variety of stores within Arizona Mills provides different styles and looks perfect for any occasion. Stores like Old Navy, H&M, Pac Sun, and even Victoria’s Secret are only a few of the stores that Arizona Mills has to offer.
Whether you’re looking to spend less and have more fun or a family outing indoors Arizona Mills is a fun destination. Watch movies, play games, shop, and eat together making only one stop. Your budget is as flexible as you want it to be, and the memories you will make are endless.
