I had a free day before the conference I'm attending starts. Since this mall is close to my hotel it was targeted for a visit. It's a pretty big complex that has a wide array of stores. It's a nice and simple place to walk and window shop. Didn't buy anything but I wasn't disappointed.

Clean, good theater, good food court. Lots of variety in stores and shops. Safe. As malls go, it's one of the best. It is big and filled with stores.Malls aren't my favorite places to be. I only go when I need to. But this is a nice one. Not overwhelming though still very big. My grandkids love the play area... More

I could spend hours here. The movie theater is interesting. Went to dinner and a movie with my daughter and a couple of her friends. I'll have to go back there again next time I return to Norfolk

Our military college class had a personalized tour with Todd, who is a local historian. Great tour that interspersed personal tidbits and stories and walked us through the center. We did a class first, then the tour. The interesting connections made were between the outcomes in history, his leadership style and how he shaped the battlefield. MacArthur was buried in... More

My family and I love MacArthur Center. It is in the heart of downtown Norfolk. Great movie theaters, Chili's restaurant, a Brazilian steakhouse. Many unique shopping places. The best part is your drive right into a parking garage, so that if it is raining, you don't get wet. And all the parking decks are very close to the stores. It... More

This mall is very large- so be sure to not get lost. It's usually a relatively quiet mall with an excellent selection of stores. Best of all, it is conveniently located in the center of the exciting, touristy area of Norfolk.

MacArthur Center exists as a regional with a few unique stores and the only Nordstrom in Hampton Roads. Unfortunately, several stores which catered to upper middle class patrons have closed due to the prior recession and internet sales. Still, it is very much worth shopping there. Try lunch at the Nordstrom café on the third floor. If you go, try... More
