Shopping in Orlando is as much an attraction as the theme parks, and a day (or three) of retail therapy provides excellent value for your money. Generally you will pay in U.S. dollars what you would in sterling if you purchased the same item in the U.K., so be sure to leave room in your suitcases for some bargain finds.
Orlando Premium Outlets
For serious bargains in the fashion world, head for one of the 2 Orlando Premium Outlets, in Lake Buena Vista on Vineland Avenue and on International Drive. Admittedly some of their stock will be last year’s designs and collections, but you will find some genuine savings on big-name brands.
- Address: 8200 Vineland Rd and 4951 International Drive
- Opening Times: 10am-11pm Mon-Sat, 10am-9pm Sun
Mall at Millenia
Mall at Millenia is the classiest of central Florida’s big shopping malls. Opened in 2003, it specialises (although not exclusively) in some of the finest retail brands, and a visit here is a truly luxurious affair. It’s the place to be for the highest quality and the best in upscale shopping, and the most popular mall with the locals.
- Address: 4200 Conroy Rd just off exit 78 of I-4
- Opening Times: 10am-9pm Mon-Sat, 11am-7pm Sun
