RESTROOMS

Restrooms are available on level two near AVEDA and Tiffany & Co. A water bottle filling station is also available near the restrooms.

No.

OTHER AMENITIES

What is there to do for kids?

  • La Encantada is home to Mildred & Dildred, a locally-owned toy store. Although the shop is small in square feet, it makes up for it in character. Several play tables are set up, along with a little "house" complete with play kitchen. Mildred & Dildred also offers a free storytime every Tuesday at 10:30am. In addition, the staff puts on free plays in the courtyard about once a month.
  • Since La Encantada is an outdoor shopping center, it strikes us as being slightly more kid-friendly than average. The courtyard provides a nice place to run around under trees and on the manicured (fake) grass.

What else do I need to know before I visit?

That just about covers it. Have a great time!
