Enjoy the 360 degrees view of Stanford University: One of the prominent landmarks located within the premises of Stanford University. This can't be missed because it is really tall.

Escondido Mall Full review
avatarpicture spiritaway THE BEST REVIEW
A decent mall with decent parking spots: Just another indoor mall with brands like Macy’s, Nordstrom, JC Penny, and Sears. There are some good restaurants nearby too if you want to grab a bite. It is a nice mall if you want to shop and grab some food. Nothing outstanding or not an iconic landmark.

A beautiful spiritual experience : A beautiful architecture complex was well worth the visit.

Sculptures, sculptures and more! : A great place to spend an afternoon exploring and learning more about art. It is an amazing place to be for an art lover like me.
