Favorite Mall Or Shopping Center
Shoppers come from far and wide with their sights set on Sawgrass Mills. And with good reason. The mall is the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in the United States. There truly is something for everyone with over 350 stores to choose from, and a variety of merchandise that runs the gamut. So much so that you’ll often see people with rolling suitcases in tow so that they can transport their haul. Selections range from value stores like Target, Marshalls and BrandsMart to luxury brand outlets such as Burberry, GUCCI and Jimmy Choo. 12801 W. Sunrise Blvd., Sunrise
Favorite Store For Kids Decor
Kids have an eye for design, especially when it comes to their own bedroom decor, and IKEA provides all the tools for making their space one of a kind. This Swedish-based company has it all — from loft beds and desks to lighting and storage — at an affordable price. The large warehouse-style retailer has options for all ages starting with nursery sets on up to dorm rooms. For added convenience, customers can shop the display rooms, then find their selected items pre-packaged on shelves on the first floor. From there you just purchase, pull up, load, and go.
151 NW 136 Ave., Sunrise
Favorite Kids Activity At A Shopping Destination
Rainforest Café at Sawgrass Mills
There’s no arguing that this dining destination serves double duty as a place to both eat and be entertained. Your family will feel like they are picnicking in the jungle as animatronic animals make their presence known, and colorful fish sail through an immense tank. There are some surprises along the way too, especially when the thunder starts to rumble. On the way out, there are themed toys, clothes and trinkets you can purchase to mark the memory. 12801 W. Sunrise Blvd., Sunrise, 954-851-1015
Favorite Store For Kids’ Stuff
If you’ve never been to Toy Express, it’s time to climb aboard. Not only is this spacious specialty toy store filled with unique and popular must-haves, but it also has added amenities, including an indoor play area, a lifelike mechanical T-Rex dinosaur and more. A doll adoption center allows children to view the baby dolls on display and pick out their favorite. The shop also hosts birthday parties in the play space and has special events throughout the year. 6325 W. Sample Rd., Coral Springs, 954-612-5240
