Store
“Built in 1990 this giant mall is Palmdale’s premier shopping destination, also featuring a 16-screen cinema complex. In all there are 140 stores and services at the Antelope Valley Mall, and the five anchor stores are Macy’s, JC Penney, Sears, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Forever 21. A day of shopping can be hungry work, so the mall has a varied food court, as well as a “restaurant row” with sit-down eateries like Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Arby’s.”

Amusement Park
“If you’re stuck for ideas for younger family members Palmdale has a branch of the Mulligan Family Fun Center. Attractions like this can be found in towns across the USA, and wherever they are, young kids and teenagers can spend hours diving into all sorts of activities. All in one attraction you’ll find video arcades, batting cages, lazer tag, mini-golf and a rock-climbing wall. A new amusement for smaller children is the Mulligan Ropes Course, a three-storey high safe play area with challenging obstacles like rope bridges.”
