America's Most-Visited Shopping Malls
No. 30 Eastwood Mall Complex, Niles, OH
Annual Visitors: 8.1 million
Year Opened: 1969
Size: 3.2 million square feet
As a mixed-genre mall—partly enclosed and partly open-air—Eastwood is sometimes not included on the list of the nation’s largest malls. But without doubt it’s a tourism powerhouse, easily besting other northern Ohio attractions like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Cedar Point Amusement Park. Macy’s and JC Penney are the largest of the mall’s 200-plus retail outlets. Eastwood’s entertainment options include two cinema complexes, a 6,300-seat minor league baseball stadium that doubles as a concert venue, and the Equarium sea-life attraction with its saltwater fish, sharks, and living coral reef.
