Mall walking is an exercise system that involves walking individually or in a group around a shopping mall. This activity is most popular with older adults, and can be a significant activity for exercise and socializing. Walking in indoor malls eliminates the uncertainty of poor weather and allows for easy access to amenities such as bathrooms and water fountains. While some participants mall walk individually, organized mall walking groups are common.
