Orlando Premium Outlets
This 440,000-square-foot outlet center offers shoppers the atmosphere of a beautiful outdoor shopping mall filled with landscaping and natural lighting. It’s inviting instead of outlet-ish. It’s billed as Orlando’s only upscale outlet and is by far the best choice for a great shopping experience in Orlando. It currently has 110 tenants, including Disney outlets, Coach, Kenneth Cole, Nike, Polo/Ralph Lauren, Timberland, and Tommy Hilfiger. Others include DKNY, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Nautica, Salvatore Ferragamo. Some of the best buys are at Banana Republic, and the selection at all the stores is fabulous. A major expansion that began in 2008 will add several more designer outlets to the already impressive lineup of stores. In addition, the center now offers a “Personal Stylist Service” package — but at a price tag of between $500 and $750, this one’s for serious shoppers only. Set just between S.R. 535 and I-Drive, it’s easily accessible from either location.

The largest of the Orlando factory outlet centers recently completed an architectural transformation to become what is now an inviting covered outdoor mall (similar to the way the Premium Outlets are laid out). It offers a wide range of merchandise and over 125 of the hottest designer brands, which, in a few cases, can be gotten at a savings of up to 75% off retail prices. Still, as is the case with most outlets, most buys here are no better than what you’ll find in discount houses in your hometown. There are more than a dozen shoe stores (Bass, Cole Haan, Nine West, Nike, Vans, Sperry, and so on); nearly as many housewares shops (Calphalon, Waterford, Pfaltzgraff, and more); a Universal Studios Outlet; and 60-some clothing and accessories shops for men, women, and children (Neiman Marcus Last Call, the Gap, Kate Spade, Juicy Couture, ESPRIT, Aéropostale, Ecko, Hugo Boss, J. Crew, Kenneth Cole, Pac Sun, Polo, Perry Ellis, Nautica, Coach, Dooney & Bourke, DKNY, Colombia Sportswear, Van Heusen, OshKosh, Izod, GUESS, and others). You can also shop for books, records, electronics, sporting goods, health and beauty aids, jewelry, toys, gifts, accessories, lingerie, and hosiery.
Thankfully, the recent overhaul ensures that you no longer have to get in and out of your car to hop from building to building, an incredible inconvenience that once kept this shopping center off my list of favorites. It is, however, in an off-the-beaten-path location, so unless you’re staying close to Universal Orlando, the other outlet options make a much better choice.

Ron Jon Surf Shop
This local Florida retailer opened its second store in 2003 at Festival Bay on the upper north end of International Drive. The 15,000-square-foot beach shop sports an island flair and offers a huge selection of its world famous surfer wear and beach gear, among its other unique (and occasionally offbeat) surfing-themed merchandise. Complementing the store is the new Ron Jon Surf Park, also at Festival Bay, which splashed onto the scene in late 2007.
Address: 5160 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819

The store is open daily, usually from 9am to 6pm (closed Christmas).

As surely as Disney brought new life to Orlando, this mall — the second largest in the area behind the Florida Mall — brought new life (and a ton of traffic) to the then-one-stoplight town of Altamonte Springs, north of Orlando. A recent renovation added a food court, an indoor play area for kids, and an 18-screen AMC movie theater with stadium seating. The lineup features anchor stores Dillard’s, JCPenney, and Sears; and 175 other specialty stores, including the Body Shop, Foot Locker, Godiva, and Banana Republic.
