Florida’s ultimate shopping and dining destinations
Known for their extraordinary retail environments, Taubman shopping centers offer everything from luxury, contemporary and fast-fashion brands, as well as unique dining and familyfriendly entertainment. Located in several of Florida’s most popular travel spots, make sure the following retail destinations are on your itinerary.
Dolphin Mall is Miami-Dade County’s largest outlet shopping center where you can find upscale goods at value prices at over 240 specialty stores, including H&M, Nike Factory Store, Polo Ralph Lauren Factory Store and more. Food and entertainment are essential aspects of the mall and it offers over 20 options, including Buffalo Wild Wings, The Cheesecake Factory, Dave & Buster’s and P.F. Chang’s. Music lovers can catch live shows featuring local artists every weekend in Ramblas Plaza. Shuttle services to the mall are available from Miami International Airport, Miami Beach and select hotels.
Located adjacent to the Tampa International Airport and less than five miles from the Port of Tampa, International Plaza and Bay Street is the dominant luxury shopping and dining destination in the region. It offers the only Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom on Florida’s Gulf Coast, plus Dillard’s, the first RH Gallery in Florida and an array of luxury brands. Over a dozen restaurants line the center’s open-air Bay Street—among them are The Cheesecake Factory and The Capital Grille. Families will also love the Busch Gardens indoor play area for kids.
Sarasota may be known for its miles of beaches, but it’s also home to one of the newest shopping centers on Florida’s West Coast—The Mall at University Town Center. Anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s and Dillard’s, it features nearly 150 stores and restaurants, over half of which are unique to this region. Many of the restaurants, such as BRIO Tuscan Grille and The Cheesecake Factory, are also exclusive to the market. There’s an indoor play area for the kids and the center offers free shuttle services for guests staying at local hotels.
Welcoming millions of domestic and international visitors every year, all three shopping centers received the TripAdvisor 2018 ‘Certificate of Excellence’ for outstanding consumer reviews. Special discounts and offers from participating retailers are also available to out-of-town travelers through each of the centers’ Passport to Shopping program.
