This upscale outdoor mall opened in October, 2006. It was the first new mall opened in the San Diego area in 20 years. It is pet-friendly and it even has a dog park on the premises next to the Macy’s. Many stores allow dogs inside but you will need to ask first. There are poop bags available at the mall and many stores have water dishes for dogs. There is also a vet located at the mall. To get to the mall and dog park from San Diego go south on the 805 Freeway to the Orange Avenue Exit. Head east on Orange Avenue which will become Olympic Parkway. Go 4 miles east to the mall.
