If you want to stay in the loop, you need to visit The Loop — Kissimmee’s pedestrian-friendly, open-air shopping center! You can spend the day shopping for well-known brands like Old Navy, Torrid, Lids, and American Eagle here. Then, grab a bite to eat at one of their 11 restaurants before heading to the latest blockbusters at the Regal Cinema 16. When we say the mall has it all, we aren’t joking around!
The Outlet’s a Sure Bet
Are you the type who loves a good deal above all else? Then you’re probably ready to dive in at the outlets. After all, this is where you can shop the biggest brand names at a fraction of the cost — what’s not to love? At the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, you’ll find the best prices on brands like Gap, Levi’s, Reebok, OshKosh B’Gosh, and Nike. And while you’re here, you’ll enjoy free, store-front parking, making the deals easier than ever to find.
There are also the Orlando Premium Outlets with two convenient locations at International Drive and Vineland Avenue. The International Drive location is the largest outlet shopping destination in all of Florida with more than 180 designer and name-brand outlet stores, including Adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Under Armor, Calvin Klein, and Saks OFF Fifth. Meanwhile, over on Vineland Avenue, you’ll find over 160 stores, including lululemon athletica, Prada, Burberry, and MCM. No matter which outlet you choose, you can expect everyday savings between 25 and 65 percent — which means more money in your pocket and more fun to be had!
