NorthPark Center, developed as the nation's first indoor mall by art collector Ray Nasher, has world-class art on its walls and sculptures in its hallways. Retail outposts include Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Bottega Veneta, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors, and Salvatore Ferragamo. Elevated features include a gorgeously landscaped greenspace, an indoor duck and turtle pond, and the twice-yearly Fashion at the Park runway shows. December is the best and busiest time
to visit—the train exhibit delights children and adults alike, puppets and humans perform throughout the mall, and the building is decked out in tasteful holiday finery.
