Firewheel Town Center
The Firewheel Town Center is not as dangerous as it sounds (especially following the chaos of Extreme Sandbox). It’s a Simon Mall. Conveniently nestled in the corner of President George Bush Turnpike and State Highway 78, this open-air shopping center boasts all your favorite brands and plenty of parking. There’s a selection of places to eat from fast food to sit-down restaurants and an IMAX AMC movie theatre. In the middle of the shops is the Town Square Boulevard Park, a relaxing and shady spot to recuperate in after all that shopping. Firewheel Town Center is the premier outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment destination in the North East Dallas area offering unique group experiences, extravagant family oriented signature events, and a distinct main street style shopping adventure. Featuring over 110 stores, which range from women’s apparel to sporting goods, Firewheel is a one-stop shop for all your shopping needs located on the corner of the President George Bush Tollway and HW 78.

Firewheel Town Center is a 998,347-square-foot (92,749.5 m2) open-air regional shopping mall in Garland, Texas. The mall is located on the northeast corner of President George Bush Turnpike and State Highway 78. The mall opened on October 7, 2005. Although “coming soon” signs first appeared in 1984, actual construction did not begin until early 2003. It was completed in 2005 and is owned by the Simon Property Group. Unlike a traditional mall, Firewheel Town Center was designed in the new urbanism style. Similar area shopping centers include Southlake Town Square, The Shops at Legacy, Uptown Village at Cedar Hill, The Shops at Highland Village, and The Village at Allen. The Firewheel name comes from the nearby Firewheel Golf Park, which in turn is named for a flower that grows naturally in the area. Dillard’s, Macy’s (originally Foley’s), DSW Shoe Warehouse, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Barnes & Noble, Men’s Wearhouse, Old Navy, Kirkland’s, Ulta, and AMC Theatres are the mall’s major stores. Dining options at Firewheel include: Bar Louie, Fish City Grill, Genghis Grill, Gloria’s Mexican Restaurant, Houlihan’s, Pete’s Burgers Wings & Drinks, Razzoo’s Cajun Cafe, and T.G.I Friday’s.
