Orlando Premium Outlets at International Drive

Both the locals and the throngs of tourists visiting Orlando every year love a bit of outlet action, and this giant store on International Drive is one of the best. In fact, many will make entire road trips from nearby states just to grab a bargain at Orlando Premium Outlets, with discounts offered on a huge range of brands, including Adidas, Victoria Secret, Hugo Boss, Diesel, Levis, Nike, Quicksilver, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger – and about 100 more! With items plucked straight from the factory, expect discounts of up to 50%. Do note that there is another Premium Outlets store further down International Drive at Vineland. The one mentioned here is next door to Universal and closer to the downtown area.

The Mall at Millenia

For some slightly more high-end shopping in Orlando, the Mall at Millenia is your answer. The indoor, multi-level shopping space is about half the size of The Florida Mall, with stores here focusing more on the upscale brands such as Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Burberry, Prada, Chanel, Cartier, Tiffany & Co, and Gucci. The building itself looks and feels the part, with spacious walkways, bright atriums and a glass roof all bringing Millenia more up to date than some of Orlando’s other malls. Located south of downtown, major actions such as Universal, SeaWorld, Disney and the international airport are all just a few minutes away.

The Florida Mall

With over 250 stores and a whopping 20 million visitors every year (about the same as how many go through Universal’s gates), The Florida Mall is easily the biggest and most popular place to shop in Orlando. There’s over two million square foot of space here, packing in everything from mid-range fashion chains to luxury designer brands, electronics, homeware, accessories and health and beauty. Look out for the enormous Toys “R” Us and Target stores, as well as the comprehensive range of dining options, with pretty much every big-name fast food joint in the country taking a spot at Florida Mall. As part of the same complex, there is also the huge 510-room Florida Hotel.

Orlando Premium Outlets at Vineland Avenue

If the sea of shoppers and designer brands at Premium Outlets International Drive becomes all a bit overwhelming, you can always head down the road to ‘Premium Outlets at Vineyard Avenue’ for more, well… shoppers and designer brands. Actually, the outlet stores here do see smaller crowds (it’s further away from downtown and not right next to Orlando), while the range of brands and discounts is almost identical, continuing the same outdoor community mall kind of vibe.

Winter Park Avenue

This cute collection of local boutiques, stalls and diners is located is a leafy suburb just north of the main metropolitan area, and well worth a visit for a more ‘local’ shopping experience in Orlando. The quaint cobbled streets take you back to a time well before Disney, Universal and the hordes of tourists arrived, although that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get a table at some of the bars and bistros here on the weekend. On the shopping front, expect local fashion designers, art pieces, homeware, handicrafts and accessory boutiques dotted around the main Winter Park Avenue and adjacent lanes, all easily explored on foot.

Opening Hours: 10:00-22:00 (most stores)

Location: Winter park Avenue

Open every day apart from Monday, this two-story market-cum-arcade aims to showcase the best of what Central Florida has to offer in terms of cooked food, art, and fresh produce. The market also features some world-class restaurants, a large event space, a live-cooking area and office space. Check their website for up-and-coming events.
