Most visitors to Orlando want at least a day’s shopping as part of the essential experience, and we can thoroughly recommend a number of outlets and centres for some great bargains, as well as additional entertainment and fab restaurants.
For the best malls, visit either the sparkling Mall at Millenia or the overwhelmingly large Florida Mall; for outlet shopping (brand names often at heavily discounted prices), try one of two Orlando Premium Outlets (Vineland Avenue in Lake Buena Vista or at the top of International Drive) or Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. The Winter Garden Village at Fowler Grove, just off Highway 429 features major names such as Target, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond and much more, plus some good dining choices.
It is hard to overestimate the value and attraction of all the shopping opportunities in the Orlando area. New stores spring up frequently, so much so that even regular visitors will find plenty to keep them interested, while first-timers will be goggle-eyed at the huge variety of goods and amazing bargains on offer.
