There are those among us who have a NEED to shop whether or not you actually need anything. This need is fueled by an urgent desire to look and browse. If you are one of those you are certainly in luck in Orlando. As you might imagine with traffic of 50 million visitors, there is absolutely no shortage of world class shopping in Orlando.
There are big shops, small shops, shopping strip malls, outlet shopping malls, shopping centers and areas of town devoted to, you guessed it, nothing but shopping. There is truly something for everyone, big and small, young and young at heart.
Anything you might imagine from three outlet malls-Belz Factory Outlet World with 170 plus shops, Lake Buena Vista Factory Store with 30 plus shops, and Orlando Premium Outlets with 110 plus stores and three regular malls-Florida Mall, Altamonte Mall, and The Mall at Millenia the most upscale of them all.
Then there’s “Celebration” an upscale shopping district that is as quant as they come and of course Downtown Disney comprised of three distinct areas and unique shops, restaurants and entertainment. Just north of downtown Winter Park has some of the most unique shops in town on cobblestone streets. Downtown you might want to check out “Antique Row”.
In summary there is something for everyone in the shopping arena of Orlando!!
Don’t believe me? Turn around and walk 10 feet in any direction. You’ll find what you are looking for. If you don’t all it means is you haven’t looked hard enough or long enough. Just remember the professional shopper’s motto “when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping.”
