Where to Shop in Florida Part 3 - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Shopping
In part 2 of these guides I mentioned that if we did not find what we were looking for, or if we just wanted to do more shopping, after we left Premium Outlets just off the I4 we go to Prime Outlets which is located on the original Belz site at the end of International Drive. I believe Prime Outlets were bought by the group that owned Premium Outlets in 2010 but we have not been over since these changes so do not know if their name has changed yet.
There is a huge car park and we usually move our car at least once to be nearer to the shops we go to at the end of our shopping trip. The shops are open 10. 00am to 11. 00pm Mondays to Saturdays and 10. 00am to 9. 00pm on Sundays. With these opening hours they are useful to visit after you have finished your day at the Parks particularly in the winter months when the Parks tend to close earlier.
Prime shops are more set out in avenues than in a big complex and I must admit we have yet to be able to find our way around it as well as we can the more established Outlet Centres. However I believe there are nearly two hundred stores there so perhaps that is not so surprising.
We always go to the old favourites such as Adidas, Timberland, Reebok, Guess, Gap and Footlocker. Next time we visit our villa in the spring the girls are keen to go to the Ed Hardy and Ugg Boots outlets. Grandad usually manages to excuse himself quite early in the shopping trip, he goes to move the car and we all meet up in Starbucks later.
There are quite a few food venues at Prime but if we want something to eat we usually go to Five Guys who do great burgers or Chicken Now. The latter has a good selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads.
If you have small children you would like to shop in peace at Prime and you also have an adult in your group who is willing they could always go to the cinema at Festival Bay which is opposite Prime. When the girls were younger Grandad often volunteered to take them there.
We would meet up afterwards and have a browse around the shops at Festival Bay. The shops here include the famous Ron Jon Surf shop which you could spend an hour browsing in as well as going to the Bass Pro Shop and Shepler’s Western Wear.
So much shopping, more in part 4.
