The Plaza del Lago shopping arcade is located at 1515 Sheridan Road across the street from the lake. The area was formerly known as "No Man's Land," and has a very colorful history. It's a lovely place to shop for unique items that one can't find in a mall.
Plaza del Lago is anchored by Jewel Grocery store and next door to that, CVS Pharmacy. The other shops are interesting gift, clothing, or specialty stores. A wonderful place to shop all year long. You can also stop for coffee at Starbucks or have lunch at Convito Cafe.
