Orlando Shopping

The Belz Festival Bay Mall is more than just a shopping mall. This mall covers more than 1 million square feet of space with hundreds of retailers inside. Cinemark Theaters operates a large multi-screen theater, while Bass Pro Shops has one of its largest Florida stores inside the mall. Vans, Ron Jon Surf Shop and Outdoor World are just a few of the other shops inside.

No trip to Orlando is complete without a visit to at least one outlet mall. The Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive is one of the most popular malls in the city. Nearly 200 major stores have shops in the mall, including Victoria's Secret, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. Some of the stores offer discounted merchandise from the main stores, while others sell items cheap because of minor flaws or damage. Orlando Premium Outlets has a second location on Vineland Avenue. This location has a mixture of similar shops and new stores.

One of the newest malls in Orlando is The Florida Mall. This is one of the biggest malls in Florida, and it's home to several well-known retailers. While some of the stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, cater to wealthy clients, other shops sell cheaper and budget-friendly clothing and accessories. It's also home to M&M World, which is the only M&M store in the state.

When Disney built its own town in Florida, it also added stores and restaurants that fit with the theme. The Celebration Town Center is where locals go when they want upscale and luxurious items. The outside of the shopping center looks more like a day spa than a shopping mall because architects spent years drawing plans that made the center fit with the architecture of the town. With a number of boutiques and a promenade that runs alongside the lake, it has a calm and peaceful feel.

Those who love fashion and style will love The Mall at Millenia. A large atrium in the center of the mall floods the space with natural light, making it look even bigger. The biggest names in the fashion world have shops in this mall, including Chanel, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, TAG Heurer, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co. The mall also has several specialty restaurants such as the Blue Martini, which serves upscale cocktails. The Brio Tuscan Grille and The Cheesecake Factory give shoppers the chance to relax and have a meal before taking another trip around the mall.
