Quick Guide to Shopping
Ok girls this is for you. For those of you that love the shopping experience and treat it as a must do part of their vacation you have picked the right place. Orlando is a shoppers’ paradise.
For those who want the designer experience the Mall of Millennia is the place to visit. Built to a grand design it houses all the top designer shops. This mall is suited most to those with expensive tastes, fashion conscious teens and adults but there is little for children.
Top department stores include; Bloomingdales, Macy’s & Neimann Marcus. For the serial browser, Burberry, Gucci, Lacoste, Tommy Bahama, Zara, Victoria’s Secret (or is this really a mans shop),Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Banana Republic, Jimmy Choo, Coach the list is endless for all the fashion victims out there.
Prices are roughly pounds for dollars so at the current exchange rate if you are a Brit you will definitely be getting a bargain. To break up the day ladies can always do “lunch” at one of the excellent restaurants. On our visit we chose the Cheesecake Factory which has a wide range of offerings to satisfy all tastes. If it’s Chinese you like go for the best known P.F.Changs which is excellent. Mall of Millenia is off the I4 at junction 78, Conroy Road.
For those who require an outlet mall you have a couple of choices Premium Outlets or Prime Factory outlets. Prime is at the top end of International drive and Premium is on Vineland Road. Prime in my opinion is not the force it used to be and has fallen away from the must go to mall it was, but still has plenty to offer. We much prefer the newer Premium Outlets which in our opinion is a mix between Designer and Outlet shopping. You still have the likes of Hugo Boss, Armani, Calvin Klein, DKNY, Versace and Tommy Hilfiger but also Nike, Dockers, Reebok, Timberland and other more affordable names. A large open plan food hall caters for many small food outlets from Chinese to pizza the choice is endless.
Probably the most visited shopping area is the Florida Mall which is at the junction of Sand lake rd and the Orange Blossom Trail. This is a typical mall with many large department stores including; Saks Fifth Avenue, Burdine-Macys, Sears and J.C. Penney plus all the usual suspects including Old Navy, American Eagle, Gap, Hollister, Aeropostale, Footlocker, The Disney Store, Playmobil, Build a Bear and Electronics Boutique. There are also some larger shops on the outskirts of the mall car park including a ToysRus. This mall caters for all the family and would suit those with children.
