Shopping near Downtown Miami

Miami ShoppingMiami is a city bursting with excitement, adventure and entertainment. Not only is it a beautiful Florida city with inviting white sandy beaches and serene blue waters, it also provides a wonderful shopping experience. Here are some places you can visit to check out the latest fashion styles during your stay in this very fashionable city:

Dolphin Mall
This mall is easily accessible due to its central, convenient location near the airport. Good thing, too, since it’s definitely a place where you’ll want to go. With over 240 specialty stores and restaurants, this mall is like a small city. From casual beach wear at the Playa to the most extravagant runway styles at Moda, and everything in between, Dolphin Mall has it all. There are sunglasses shops, sportswear, fragrance shops and even children’s stores if you’ve got little ones to shop for. You can also pick up the latest gadgets or accessories in our ever-advancing world of technology at one the electronic stores.

The Falls
This outside mall allows you to bask in the warm Miami sun while figuring out which shoes go best with your new dress. Here you can experience the winning combination of shopping while working on your tan. The place has some big names in the fashion world, too, like Macy’s, Hollister, Gap, Brooks Brothers and White House/Black Market. The Falls mall caters to individual fashion taste so you can look chic and unique in your own personal style. As an additional treat, there’s a Crate & Barrel and Williams-Sonoma where you can purchase some décor for your home.

Lincoln Road
This pedestrian mall offers 10 blocks of shopping heaven. Seven of those blocks are off limits to auto traffic, probably in consideration for those light-headed swooning shoppers who may be too enthralled with their purchases to focus on approaching vehicles. Lincoln Road is fraught with unique shops and boutiques that offer rare items not normally found in malls. There are art galleries displaying aesthetic beauty and talent that offer a touch of class and culture to this outdoor shopping frenzy. Most restaurants offer outdoor seating so you can people-watch and window shop while loading up on energy for the next leg of your shopping marathon.

Bayside Marketplace
This delightful shopping area is close to South Beach and offers a variety of stores and styles right on the waterfront with a view of the skyline. There is usually live entertainment with outdoor music and dancing, so you can shop with a wiggle and shake, or just add a little spring in your step. Whether you plan to get decked out for that night’s outing or do the touristy thing and buy some souvenirs, this lively marketplace makes shopping just another adventurous and fun-filled Miami experience.
