When you’re not at the beach or hanging out with Mickey, Florida is an excellent place to shop, with brand bargains to be found all over the place. Here are some of the best malls in the Orlando, in my opinion, so leave some space in that suitcase…
Orlando Area Premium Outlets Orlando Premium Outlets is America’s largest outlet chain and has two huge malls in the Orlando area, both open until 11PM, Mon-Sat. Both locations have much the same list of retailers and there’s barely a big name brand that isn’t on there. Sporty brands are particularly well covered, so this is the place to head for big savings on trainers. Discounts of 20-65% are available every day. The International Drive mall is south of the city, about 25 minutes’ drive from Disney World or 20 from Downtown Orlando. Vineland Avenue is a bit further south and under 10 minutes from Sea World.
The Mall at Millenia With 150+ stores and restaurants, The Mall At Millenia is a great all-rounder, with everything from high street to high-end chains. The eating options are great, making it the best place to visit if you need a bite with your retail therapy. Various sales, expo events, fashion showcases and kids’ activities rotate throughout the year. Southeast of the city, with the nearest attraction being Universal Orlando, about 10 minutes’ drive away. About 15 minutes from Sea World or Downtown Orlando and half an hour from Disney.
The Florida Mall Central Florida’s largest retail space, The Florida Mall is like a mini city with its 1.9 million square feet of shopping. A gigantic selection of fashions for everyone, especially women and children, plus about as many accessories, electronics and health & beauty products as you could fit in one place. About 15 minutes’ drive south of the city, around 30 minutes east from Walt Disney World and an easy 10 from Sea World.
