Whenever I have a guest in from out of town, I make it a point to take them to Cherry Creek Mall, because it is by far the most beautiful mall I have ever seen! I have been to malls in just about every major US city you can think of, and I don't think anything beats Cherry Creek! True, the clothes are sometimes outlandishly priced (hello? $1350 for a skirt at Saks???) but that's half the fun. I like to go window-shopping at Cherry Creek Mall, then try to re-create the look with much cheaper knockoffs. Don't worry if you're not exactly as rich as Paris Hilton, though- they also have regular stores like Express, Forever 21, and the most beautiful Victoria's Secret you will find on this earth (even nicer than the one on 5th Ave. in New York, I think!) I used to work at the Express at Cherry Creek Mall when I was in college, and I found out that Cherry Creek Mall is known as a "test mall" for chain stores to try out new products and store formats before unleashing them on the rest of the country, so you will be sure to find the best selection there!
Pros: Great selection, diverse shops, beautiful setting
Cons: The salespeople can sometimes act like the snotty shopgirl on Pretty Woman
