The Prettiest Outdoor Mall

Blackhawk, CA, United States
11 Kudos
This is an outdoor mall called Blackhawk Plaza and it is the prettiest outdoor mall I have ever been to. It is beautifully landscaped with shopping, dining, an art gallery, fountains, waterfalls, a pond, a museum, and a playground. The mall was almost empty on a weekend pre-COVID so I have no idea how the businesses here are able to stick around. I know I would want to come here all the time to enjoy the scenery if I lived closer. Many varieties of ducks can be found waddling around or swimming in the water. You can buy duck food near the check out registers at the fancy grocery store called Draegers.
