Publix Supermarkets

One of the great advantages of staying at a villa is that you enjoy shopping for household goods and food at the local supermarkets. At home we tend to do a Supermarket dash at the weekends but whilst in Florida we have time to have a leisurely brows...

Eagle Ridge Mall

Shopping in Florida

Even though our exchange rate is not at its best at the moment, it is still a good idea to shop in Orlando. It is about the same in dollars as it is in pounds to buy clothes in America. A good example of that is Ugg boots which are £179 here in the U...
