Best US Outlet Mall Destinations
Since factories began selling overstock goods in the 1930s, US outlet malls now number more than 13,000 and cover an average of 200,000 square feet each. (For listings by state, visit OutletBound.com).
Even the Kardashians couldn’t shop that much retail space. So we’ve compiled some of the best outlet destinations in the United States for great bargains and nearby activities that the whole family will enjoy.
But even great shopping may pale next to Destin's clear waters and powder-white sands. Repeatedly voted one of America’s best beaches, Destin also lauds itself as “the fishing capital of the world.” Watersports, shelling, amazing seafood, birding, the Florida Gulfarium and renowned golf courses are all nearby. Like many outlets, Silver Sands partners with hotels for “shop and stay” packages, including lodging, shuttles, spas and more. Residence Inn Sandestin’s Girls’ Getaway package includes a coupon book “worth $800 in savings.” Other partner hotels: Courtyard Sandestin, WaterColor Inn & Resort.
Shopping for more American history? Try Leesburg (VA) Corner Premium Outlets (40 minutes from Washington, DC) as part of your Ball’s Bluff or Harper’s Ferry battle site tours. (Holiday Inn Leesburg offers breakfast for two, coupons and a free Samsonite backpack to hold your goodies). And Williamsburg (VA) Premium Outlets feature Coach, Burberry and 130-plus other stores — if Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, Monticello and Virginia’s famous wine country haven’t already tuckered you out!
Of course you know about Vegas’ exciting casinos, restaurants and shows. But don’t forget that Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon (try a helicopter tour or a Colorado River rafting trip) are only 2 hours away.
