Viejas Outlet Center

One of the lovliest outlet malls you'll ever discover!

Viejas Outlet Center: beautiful, Native American-themed architecture

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 motifs

Photo:  View from BEHIND a waterfall at the Viejas Outlet Center in metro San Diego The 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.

Photo of a bear statue and beautiful landscaping at the Viejas Outlet Center near San Diego, California Animal statuary is used at Viejas to complete the "you're in the world of nature now" feeling for the visitor. A cougar lurks on a high limb. A ram climbs a rocky knoll. An eagle poses before flight. And, below on the ground, animal "footprints" provide the "proof" that the forest is near at hand.

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.

I 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.

In addition to admiring the architecture and ambience of the mall, there's still more to do than shop at the Viejas Outlet Center. Many evenings in the outlet mall's "Center Show Court" a performance is given. There are 3 different performances that rotate being shown, depending on the season of year. All feature music, lasers, lights...or even pyrotechnics. Admission is free!

It's relaxing to watch the Dancing Waters, which run throughout the day at Viejas Outlet Center near San Diego You'll want to plan some time to sit and watch the relaxing "Dancing Waters" fountains in the Center Court area, as well. You might want to combine this activity with stopping for a snack break or lunch. Several eateries adjoin the central courtyard, and there are plenty of outdoor tables where you can eat your meal while gazing at the fountains.
