It is a tourist attraction and a must see stop for many that come to the Syracuse area. The impressive architecture and large size of the mall puts many visitors in awe. Some of my all-time favorites - Build-A-Bear (my daughter's "Lu-Lu" always needs new clothes), the glass elevators that allow you to see the whole mall, the escalators by Best Buy are rarely busy and great fun for any 1-3 year old, Gertrude Hawk is always fun with their free chocolate samples, and of course Cold Stone Creamery with their make it your way ice cream is always a fun family treat. With plenty of stores and eateries, one could easily spend the day here. And if Destiny USA is ever implemented it will truly be a site to behold!
