To the right of the gaudy Southpont cinema is an avenue lined with shops suitable for men, women, and kids. Bring the family, grab a coffee at Barnes and Noble, or some ice cream or fudge at the "other stores" (sorry, can't remember exact names). Then drop dear hubby off at the Apple or the Bose stores, go buy your dear kiddie a cute outift, shop for new glasses or watches for yourself, then gather the whole family to choose bed sheets at Eddie Bauer Home or one of the other home furnishing stores. If you get hungry, there are no less than five restaurants to choose from (Maggiano's- Italian food, California Pizza Kitchen, Champs- American bar food, Firebirds Rocky Mt. Grill, and a seafood place). But go early because everyone else who is out shopping will be lined up for seating during the dinner rush hour as well. Or head into the adjacent Southpoint Mall for some food court action. Oh, true to it's name, this really is somewhat of an "outdoors mall" and there are lots of benches and fountains to sit on and watch people or the world pass by.
