I hate to say this, as First Colony is in my neighborhood, but this mall is pretty unexciting. It has the same retailers as any suburban mall with nothing to distinguish it. It's big enough to accommodate the area, at least for now, and is generally not overcrowded, and if you're happy with the usual suburban stores - Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Express - you can find something cute while strolling around. The food court is also the same old stuff, so have a Cinnabon pastry while you're wandering around Waldenbooks, wishing once again you'd made the drive out to the Galleria.
Pros: Parking, Not crowded
Cons: Lack of selection
