Florida Vacation Guide: the best stores in Miami

Miami has a number of options if you’re wondering what to shop and where to find it. From a clothing store to pet stores and luxury to discount shops, you can choose between open-air shops or an indoor air-conditioned mall. Here are three of the best:

Bal Harbor Shops

Even though it’s the highest grossing mall per square foot in the country, Bal Harbor is more than just a string of stores. After you’ve strolled through the open-air luxury shops, from Bulgari to Oscar De La Renta, drop your bags for  unique meal options, from Stephen Starr’s Makoto to the newly opened caviar and French wine bar, Savarin. Afterward, watch a movie on the beach or attend an art installation during Art Nights.

Sawgrass Mills

You’ll find a bargain in more than 350 stores at this massive outlet mall, one of the largest in the U.S. From Coach Factory store and Kenneth Cole Company Store to J. Crew Factory to Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Sawgrass Mills also has a Gameroom, Imax and great restaurants such as the Cheesecake Factory and Grand Lux Cafe.

Lincoln Road Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market

Every second Sunday, bargain hunters and treasure seekers descend on the Lincoln Road Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market to find something unique for a deal. From housewares to fashion, the mix is so eclectic that it will satisfy a ’50s junkie to a gardener. If you want the best selection, get to this outdoor market early; for the best deal, stay till closing and then start to bargain!
