There is a bit of fun for everyone at the Spectrum. Whether you are out for a walk, a movie, great food or great shopping, the center has something for every member of the family. Kids love to play in the Apple store, the Boze is great for what's on the horizon in sound, and mom can go to Brighton!

Been to this place 5-6 times after moving to Irvine. Its a cool place with lots of fun things to keep my toddler busy. Also, good food options. Though not ideal for shopping as the stock seems pretty limited at all the stores. But do go there for a nice evening with kids or friends.

It has a good variety of shops, most of what you need is there, including Target, Macy's and Apple Store. The variety of restaurants also is great with different culinary choices and my favorite ice cream parlor Yogurtland :) they also have cinemas. The best part that it's outdoors with very nice atmosphere especially when the weather is good. And... More

The Irvine Spectrum is a nice place to dine (a few healthy choices even for food snobs like me - LYFE Kitchen, Tender Greens), shop (Nordstrom, Macy's and small boutiques for all ages), and stroll outside after enjoying that meal at a variety of restaurants. The Edwards Regal Theater offers a massive selection of movies and recently added a theater... More

Spectrum Center is constantly evolving, which means it is contstantly under construction. The place is a people watching mecca. I love strolling through to see whats new, but I dont think I have ever been where there isnt a section under major construction and that takes away from the experience. The East parking structure is undergoing some renoivation and it's... More

This place has everything. Up market shops cinemas and lots of eating establishments serving the full range from fast food up to something approaching fine dining . Plenty of parking. But beware this place is large. You will do some serious walking.
