Aside from the slew of stores that invite you to indulge in some blissful retail therapy, there's loads of fun to be had in Canal City. Catch a movie at the incredible cinema, revel in oodles of fun and thrills at the amusement arcade, treat yourself to some live music on the outdoor stage or make your way to Ramen Stadium on the fifth floor — a vibrant restaurant serving an assortment of mouth-watering ramen varieties.
