Gardens Mall is a beautiful indoor two-level mall. It is big, with plenty to see and do. There are ritzy shops as well as a few kids stores like Build-A-Bear Workshop and Claire's Fashion Jewelry. A colorful candy store is called Sugar Happens.
There are upscale chain restaurants such as P. F. Chang's Chinese (the food is delicious but the service slow) that are attractive inside and have consistent food. The food court on the second level has a good selection of fast-serve restaurants, including Chipotle (yum!).
The mall is fun to stroll around on a stormy or too-hot day. It is usually packed with people, as if the whole town hangs out there! What makes it nice is that there are fake gardens with tulips, sculptures, and lit-up fountains throughout the mall, which is fairly low-lit allowing the decorative lighting to look even prettier. Kids love to run by the fountains and admire the lights! There is a glass elevator kids can ride to watch the fountains from above. One of the fountains leaps, and there are tiered streams that flow out from the fountains. The "gardens" are filled with Southern charm.
Another wonderful place to stroll is Downtown at the Gardens, an outdoor mall on a small lake just next door to Gardens Mall- they have a beautiful tropical-themed carousel, a mini-train, and plenty of shops and restaurants.
