Vacations are coming up and we hear many of our friends are going on cruises, having Nassau, Bahamas as one their stops. If you have previously been there, you might not even want to get off the ship. The stores, the straw market and Senor Frogs... what else is there to do? Here is our recommendation for a fun day in the island without spending much money.
You can spend a wonderful day at the beach to experience one of the most beautiful scenes of white sand and clear, light blue water you have ever seen.
You will come to Orlando to see the attraction parks for sure. Yes, there are so many options. However, one of the attractions you can't miss is the shopping outlets. In the tourist areas of International Drive and Lake Buena Vista, you will find two outlets that are well known to the visitors and promoted in the hotels. However, there are other outlets in the greater Orlando area that are not in the tourist section which offer excellent discounts that you might not believe. I love checking out the discounts here, to get quality stuff at bargain prices!
Here are three of my Secret Shopping Outlets you can check out:
1. Victoria Secret Outlet at Premium Outlet on International Drive (4951 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819) - Although this is one of the outlets in the tourist section and well know, we suggest you go here for the ONLY Victoria Secret outlet! Yes, the coveted Victoria Secret has an outlet here in Orlando where you can find excellent discounts on everything they sell, such as lingerie, perfumes, lotions, and more.
2. Dillard's Clearance Center (3403 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32803) - Who knew Dillard's had an outlet? There are a few of them around the country, but you would never know just by driving by. The store looks like any other Dilard's store from the outside. This one is located in the Fashion Square Mall. Here you will find rows and rows of clothes organized by color and style. Sometimes they have specials such as buy one, get two free or any shoes for $10. You can find brand names such as Polo and Michael Kors here, but you have to put in the effort to search through everything to find your treasure. Store opens from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm only and specials change daily, sometimes, hourly. Call (407) 896-1211 to find out what is going on that day.
3. A brand new option is Macy's Backstage! (451 E Altamonte Dr, Altamonte Springs, FL 32701) - Backstage is a section of the regular Macy's store inside the Altamonte Mall. They have allocated a portion of the second floor to this outlet/clearance center. They have great discounts on clothes for men and women, shoes, gadgets, housewares and even decorative furniture. Worth checking it out while visiting the mall.
Let me know if you find some good bargains!! Happy Shopping!!
