For some odd reason, every time I step into this place, it's like I am magically transported to somewhere in the southern half of the state... only, I'm still in the Bay Area! I guess it's something about the way people dress, but the people here definitely don't look like their Nor*Cal counterparts in terms of fashion and attitude.
Furthermore, this place is absolutely HUGE. It's like our very own version of South Coast Plaza. Pretty much any chain store you can think of, and many more you have never even heard of, can be found here in Valley Fair. The best thing about it is that it is also very clean and classy, with a pedestrian friendly, welcoming layout. Unlike similar malls, such as Stoneridge in Pleasanton, the decor is more upscale, and coming here is more of an experience rather than just shopping for clothes and supplies.
Oh, and did I mention the eye candy here? Trust me. I usually end up having to leave after about thirty minutes due to sensory overload and a sore neck. =P
