If you are one of those people who shop when you travel, you will want to know about Tysons Corner Center when you travel to the east coast. Rated the third largest shopping mall in the United States, it takes little for one to see why when you are within its confines. We decided to go to the Mall on a Saturday of all days (bad idea); it was parked beyond anything I had ever encountered.
First of all I had never seed a street light right at the mall itself, this mall is so big, there is a street light right by the parking garage. Mark and I laughed about it. That aside, the three story parking garage was completely filled up, and we had to keep driving around until someone moved.
Once you get passed the traffic, parking and into the mall, then more more human traffic. Well that is what we got on a Saturday. I think if you try a weekday perhaps in the morning hours, it should be manageable.
With over 300 specialty shops and restaurants,the mall has an incredible mix of fashion. My daughter and I, found ourselves feeling like little children at a candy store. Mention the big names like Macys, Lord & Taylor, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale to names like Aeropostale, Apple, Aldo, H&M, etc and they are there. From high end to middle class they have something for everyone.
Located just 13 miles from the Nation's capital, it draws shoppers from all over DC, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, not to mention the visitors and tourists.
When you are done shopping or need to just take a break, the many restaurants provide for sit downs with friends, family or just a companion. Coffee shops and nice restaurants on the different levels. So look it up should you find yourself in Virginia,or DC.
The restaurant is located in the Tyson Corner mall, which is a hugely popular location for shopping and dining. I was there on a Sunday evening and it is busy, but I dont think you need to make a reservation to book your table. I have been here twice and never needed to make a reservation. It has an open view that gives you a feeling of a beach...more
We went shopping at the Tyson Corner Mall as you may have read in my previous review of Tyson Corner. Well, it was a hot day and it seems the air conditioning in the mall was stressed because it was warm even inside. My daughter and I decided to have frozen yogurt to cool off.The Fruity Yogurt is on the second floor of the mall. I must say I like...more
After walking the mall a while, we decided to get something to eat. The food court is located on the third floor,an escalator filled with shoppers took us there. There were so many cuisines to choose from. After debating on Chinese for a while, I decided to go with the grilled lamb, at the Grill Kabob; looked so delicious and inviting.If you have...more
I have tried every Cheesecake restaurant within a 2 hour drive of where I'm currently located; Herndon. This one is located at the Tysons Galleria Mall, which is the high end part of the mall. But this does not mean the prices change either.The prices are the same, food the same, we just sampled a different soup and same cheesecake.The White...more
Only when I looked for information on La Madeleine on the web did I find out it was a chain - although a fairly small one, as far as chains go.You can get good food (and wine!) without the pressures & priceof a full-service restaurant. It's a great place to dine alone, read a book, etc.They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and have...more
I am used to eating at this restaurant in other locations and I was a true admirer until I tried one of their chains in Tysons Corner in Vienna. During the two times I have eaten there, I had to wait in line for 15 to 20 minutes to order and then another 45 minutes to get my food. It was rediculous. The most amazing thing is that whoever is with me...more
Upscale, coat-and-tie kind of place. Dark wood, nicely decorated in conservative style. Linen tablecloth and napkins; comfortable wood chairs. There is a bar but we are not bar people so I cannot tell you what that was like.The meal was delicious. We started with a crisp salad. I then went for the Prime Rib and my wife had the Seafood Platter with...more
We waited too long and all the restaurants in the mall next to the Ritz had over an hour wait for dinner. We were about to give up when we saw this restaurant had seating. It is across from the lebanese restaurant. We waited maybe 10 minutes and dinner was great. They had a kids menu that pleased our 8-yr-old son. I got the chopped salad which was...more
Tysons Corner has no rail station right in town. The closest Metro-Rail stations are in West Falls at eastern end of Dulles Access Road (VA 267); Dunn Loring west of Gallows Road (VA 650); Vienna west of Nutley Street (VA 243). These stations are on the Orange Line.From those stations it is a short cab ride or bus ride to Tysons corner.See the MAPS...more

This is a two-tier mall with an amazing selection of shops and restaurants. Inside you will find shops like Bloomingdales, Armani Exchange, Bebe,Nordstrom, Hechts, and restaurants like Rainforest Cafe, Bistro 123, Neisha Thai Cuisine, amnst many others. Die-hard shoppers- you will need ALOT of funds for these shops. Nothing is priceless in Tysons...more
I could find no negative crime data about Tysons Corner. Everything about this town is squeaky clean. It rates in the top 10% of safe cities in America. It has no registered sex offenders and no murders in over 6 years.
Having said that, I think you still should lock car doors when you leave the car and use the latch-chain on the motel door. Better safe than sorry even in the best of places.
