  • the 4 year old will like the pool at the hotel and the theme park in the hotel but likely hate being dragged around shopping. You can contact the visitors bureau and they will send a book with lots of ideas!

  • I stayed at a very pleasant hotel in view of the mall, but I can't remember its name (I was on a business trip.) Honestly, I was disappointed with the mall, shopping-wise. It's only big because of the amusement park in the middle, not because of the variety of stores, which is mediocre.

There's also a huge amusement park (called ValleyFair) and the Como Zoo, which is great as we
