You could easily spend an entire day with your family at Bay Street Emeryville, because there's something there for everyone. In addition to shopping for apparel, you can also catch a movie at the AMC Theatre, or even buy something to decorate your home. If you get hungry, there are several places to satisfy any craving, whether it be for cupcakes or pizza. Though there are often delightful live performances on weekends, that also tends to be the busiest time to visit. Weekdays after school are also crowded, as it provides a popular mall-like atmosphere for local teens to hang out. Street parking is difficult, though paid parking in the garage can be validated at the movie theater and at Barnes & Noble.
