On Friday and Saturday, when they’re open from 11 to 11, local bands play loudly and parking in the mall lot becomes non-existent. Luckily, you can find other lots less full nearby –check the lot at the Coaster station. The rest of the week, from Sunday to Thursday, they’re open from 11 to 10, and parking is easier to find in their lot. If your child likes fish tacos or roasted chicken, the Coyote terrace is a decent place to have lunch after visiting the Children’s Discovery Museum in this mall. Lunch hour attracts mainly workers from nearby businesses and tourists shopping in the mall. THEN, it’s quiet and not crowded.
