Shopping in Orlando has become so popular that it’s practically become an activity in its own right. The reason? Outlet stores of course! In fact, many day-trippers will travel across entire states just to get in on the outlet action, with many big-name designer brands offering discounts between 20-70% off retail prices. The most famous outlet brand is ‘Orlando Premium Outlets’; one is located at the top of International Drive and the other is at the southern end (Vineland branch).
For malls, Orlando doesn’t disappoint either; The Florida Mall is the largest, welcoming some 20 million per year, while Mall at Millenia is the place to go for high-end international brands (just don’t expect any crazy discount here). For a less commercial scene, the region is dotted with some quieter indoor market-style spaces selling locally-designer fashion items, fresh produce, and handicrafts.
