Great place if you have multiple things to buy and have kids. They have a carousal and theater as well as good places to dine (casual to more fancy)

The Irvine Spec t rum is jam packed with endless food options and shopping. You can find any kind of cuisine here. It is decorated very cool with the palm trees and lights. Even if u just want walk around it would be a fun place.

Nice open space with Moroccan style decor, very festive atmosphere at most times, I really like hanging out here even when I'm not looking to buy anything. Very family friendly and great place to just hang out.

One of my favorite hang out place while in the Irvine area. It caters to the nice weather in Orange County with it's open mall with shops and restaurants. There is a very nice movie theater, arcade for the kids, and occasionally they have entertainers. This is a kid friendly spot and does not have the crowded feel of other... More

The Irvine Spectrum is one of the best when it comes to shopping, dining and entertainment. It has it all. Beautiful area. Lots of shops. Amazing restaurants to dine at and also an awesome movie theater that includes IMAX. It's a must visit when your in the Irvine area.

Irvine Spectrum basically has it all - fast food restaurants, fine-dining, retail shops, department stores, carousel rides, movie theater, etc. The mall has complimentary wi-fi which was pretty neat since we're only tourists and we needed some means of communicating with each other after we're done with shopping. We arrived lunch time and went home around 5 pm.

We'd been to the spectrum a few times in the previous years we'd been to OC. Not too large. It has a train, carousel, and Ferris wheel for the kids to enjoy. Many outdoor... More
