Viejas Outlet Center
One of the lovliest outlet malls you'll ever discover!
We can't say enough nice things about the Viejas Outlet Center in Alpine (greater San Diego), California! Just spending time at this beautiful and garden-like location will make you feel like you've been "away from it all." Come discover the Viejas Outlet Mall---maybe you'll like it as much as we do!
Viejas Outlet Center: Decor, themes and motifsThe most important thing to know about the decor of the Viejas Outlet Center is that it's on Native American land and built around a Native American theme. A melange of Native American styles have been used in the building and decorating motifs at Viejas mall. The buildings themselves are "pueblo style," similar to those built by the Native Americans of New Mexico (...think "Taos.") Other features at the Viejas complex are reminiscent of tepees built by the plains tribes.
The atmosphere at the Viejas Center doesn't stop with the buildings alone, though. Prominent use is made of water. You'll find waterfalls, water fountains, streams, ponds, and "dancing waters" throughout the Viejas outdoor mall. The abundance of running water provides a sensation of rest and relaxation to those who visit here.
Interesting uses of space itself are apparant throughout Viejas. On one hand, you'll find narrow walkways which provide a cozy, "old world" feel. But on the other extreme, you'll also see a huge, grassy park in the middle of the Viejas grounds...the size of which you won't see at any other mall. The effect is utterly stunning.
The Viejas Mall's decor doesn't end with merely VISUAL effects, either. Sound is an important effect at Viejas. Music mixed with the sounds of nature is piped into the courtyards and pathways at Viejas. Native American instruments and original recordings are auditory treats for the Viejas guests.
Where do the sound effects end, and reality take over? Are those real birds chirping and frogs croaking? It could be. Or, it could be the speakers bringing you the sounds of the forest. Reality or make-believe? Whatever the source, the effect you'll feel upon hearing the sounds of nature is one of peace and relaxation.
We came early to Viejas to take these photos before the crowds of people arrived. In the early morning, nearly all by myself, Viejas seemed almost like a sanctuary. Almost like the shoppers who'd soon be arriving would merely mar the serenity of this special place. We've been here a number of times since that day, and are always impressed all over again by the beauty of the Viejas Outlets.

Viejas Outlet Center: ShoppingAs we mentioned earlier on this page, women's clothing is the Viejas Outlet Center's strong suit. This outlet mall is a particularly good place for finding business and "dress casual" attire. Though men's clothing is not formerly Viejas Mall's strong point, some of the newer store additions have corrected that situation...and more additions in the category of "active sports wear" have been added.
