The Collection at Forsyth and The Forum is the future of shopping in the suburbs. In the burbs it is just outdoor shopping set in a Main Street setting, while intown makes these multipurpose with apartments and condos mixed in. Restaurants are mixed in for a plus at meal time. The Forum has a really nice restaurant in Grace 1720, the food has been good, I have had service issues more than one time. There is also a Ted’s Montana Grill and La Parilla. There is also a Japanese, sushi and hibachi and an Italian restaurant. While at the Collection, there is Norman’s Landing across the street and a Red Robin and a Cheeky’s which are both very good. There are many more eateries there also.
They have some shops in common, Talbot’s, Ann Taylor, Coldwater Creek, J. Jill, and DSW Shoe Warehouse! DSW is the best, the back room is where the highest discounted shoes are, but it’s not in the back any more (still good deals to be had!!!). There are always good sales in the back of every store.
The end of the day you have to stop by Haagen-Daz, what? They have Smoothies…and some yummy shakes. Sit out front and people watch (because the young person would not let you take photos of strangers, bummer). The end to a great shopping day!
