Bring Home Some Souvenirs
Shopping and vacations tend to go hand in hand. Whether you’re looking for a cool souvenir to help you remember your trip to Orlando, Florida, or simply want to hunt for some good deals, there’s no better place to start looking than at these four shopping centers. They encompass everything from outlet malls to standard shopping malls. You should have no trouble finding what you need!
– Orlando Premium Outlets – Vineland Ave, 8200 Vineland Avenue, Orlando, FL 32821
One of two Premium Outlets in the Orlando area, this one is located very close to Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World. Essentially, it’s in the heart of the action, making it an easy place to stop at on your way back to the hotel after a day spent at Disney. Some of the many 160 stores in this outlet mall include Prada, Vera Bradley, Banana Republic, Diesel, Fendi and Polo Ralph Lauren.
– Winter Park Village, 400 North Orlando Avenue, Winter Park, FL 32789
Winter Park Village is in the city of Winter Park, a short drive from Orlando. This shopping center has something for everyone – shops include White House Black Market, J. Jill, Game Stop, Guitar Center, and Ulta. There is also a movie theater on the grounds, as well as a number of different restaurants, serving up everything from sushi and steak to enchiladas and frozen yogurt. If you need a day away from the theme parks, this is the place to go.
– The Mall at Millenia, 4200 Conroy Rd, Orlando, FL 32839
How many upscale shops can you fit under one roof? The Mall at Millenia tries to answer that question. Some of the many stores located in this 2-story mall include Neiman Marcus, Michael Kors, Prada, David Yurman, Gucci, Kate Space New York, Jimmy Choo and Versace. There is also a Game Stop, an H&M, a Sanrio store and an American Eagle Outfitters, providing places for the whole family to shop. The Cheesecake Factory, 2 Starbucks locations, and P.F. Chang’s China Bistro provide handy “refueling” spots so that you can keep on shopping.
– Lake Buena Vista Outlets, 15657 State Road 535, Orlando, FL 32821
Another of the outlet malls in the area (the others are the Orlando Premium Outlets – Vineland Ave, and Orlando Premium Outlets – International Drive), this one is slightly off of the beaten path. The Lake Buena Vista Outlets have a number of more affordable stores, like Nike, Old Navy, Disney, Jones New York, Fossil, and Gap. The shopping center is next door to the Lake Buena Vista Resort and Spa, providing you with a relaxing place to stop after a long day of shopping.
With so many different places to shop at in the Orlando area, it can be tough to determine which one to start with. Between the outlet malls and the regular malls, you’ll have plenty of stores to spend your vacation wandering through. Hopefully you’ll find the souvenirs that you’ve been looking for in one of them – or a new suitcase to hold all of the items that you just purchased.
