1 Eastridge Mall • San Jose, CA 95122-1402
Score (8 out of 10)
Eastridge Mall in San Jose, with nearly 1.4 million square feet of leasable space, is one of the largest malls in the San Francisco Bay Area.
A recent remodeling brought in an AMC Theater and outdoor streetscape, with tenants such as Barnes & Noble and Bed Bath & Beyond. Other new stores continue to open inside, as well. The general consensus is that the renovation is a success.
Once inside, you’ll find many stores and an overall pleasant design. The mall’s feel is spacious and airy. Plush carpet is easy on your feet on the second level. The center court features a unique panel of lights along the ceiling, modern fountains on the floor, and an industrial-style elevator serving both levels.
A large food court can be found on the Upper Level next to Sears. It’s directly across from the cinema, which makes getting a snack before or after a movie very convenient.
Depending on the location, parking ranges from easy to difficult. Near Sears, parking is a little easier. Near JC Penney and the new cinema, parking is a bear. However, the lot is large and you are always able to find a spot.
Eastridge Mall is located in San Jose CA, in between Tully Road, East Capitol Expressway, and Quimby Road. From Hwy 101, exit east on Tully Road.
