I go to this magnificent mall every time I travel to the Seattle and Bellevue areas!! Located just eight miles east of Seattle, it features over 200 of the nation's finest stores and local boutiques. It is considered to be the premier shopping destination in the Northwest, and one of the best shopping centers in the nation. With two indoor levels, a couple of play areas and a number of major department stores, it's hard to not find what you want. Hours: Mon-Sat 9:30am-9pm; Sun 11am-7pm Getting There: From Seattle via Highway 520: Take Hwy 520 east over the Evergreen Point Bridge to I-405 south.

Take Exit 13B west onto NE 8th or Exit 13A onto NE 4th. Continue west for four blocks. Parking: Valet and ample covered parking.
