Greensboro's malls can easily be described in road terms. Carolina Circle Mall was Interstate 40 and Four Seasons Mall is Interstate 85. But which one was the better one? I will now talk about a few things I like about each mall.
Why I Like Carolina Circle Mall: It was very homey and comfortable. It included the only ice rink and/or carousel in Greensboro. Well, that's excluding the cheap mini carousels outside of K-Mart. It just had that certain comfort feal that most malls of today don't have.
Why I Like Four Seasons Mall: It's the only mall I've every been to that has 3 floors. It also has that elegant feal to it. I don't have much to say on this but I describe it more at Four Seasons City. :)
But if I had the chance to go to either Four Seasons or Carolina Circle I'd definately of course choose Carolina Circle. Four Seasons has gone through a trendy modernization the past 10 years. That's alright, but maybe it's because I'm more retro than contemporary. If Carolina Circle was still opened, it would probably be just as contemporary as Four Seasons. It's also amazing to see that both malls are about the same age. Four Seasons opened in 1975 and Carolina Circle opened in 1976. Oh well. Only the good die young.
Here's a list of every mall and major shopping center that's been in Greensboro:
