BEST LOCAL MALLS
The upscale Mall at Millenia is pretty, airy and conducive to piling on the shopping bags. Find the perfect work dress at Anthropologie or a killer bag at Jimmy Choo or Chanel. The food court offers quick vegan meals, burgers and smoothies. Or, sit down for service at The Cheesecake Factory or Brio. Forever 21 and H&M will satisfy junior shoppers, while the guys may aim for Apple for tech time or Salvatore Ferragamo for cool shoes. Wait! You’re not done! Take the kids over to The Florida Mall to visit the new American Girl store or go candy crazy at the M&M store.
Stroll along Park Avenue in Orlando’s pretty nextdoor neighbor, Winter Park. Pop into locally owned boutiques like Sultre and Tuni’s for trendy pieces and Lily Pulitzer for juicy, polished prints. Dinner options are plentiful. Choose Dexter’s for a casual meal on the patio or Prato for Italian farm-to-table fare with craft cocktails.
