Shopping4When you’re done with the beach, shopping is a treat for any guest who stays at our Beach Vacation Rentals properties.  Whether you plan your outing for whenever there might be a rainy day, or whether your goal here is to shop extensively and load up on all of the bargains you cannot get back home in cities throughout the Caribbean, Europe or South America….you are in for some great shopping experiences during your stay.

Pompano Beach is central to some of the best and most unique shopping places in South Florida, including outlet shopping, flea markets, and high-end shopping malls and shopping districts.  Best of all, bargains, discounts and sales are everywhere!

Pompano Beach Shopping
Our beach-area shops are within a short walk from all Beach Vacation Rental properties.  For a quick run to the closest mall for a variety of boutiques, restaurants and department stores like Macy’s, JC Penney and Sears, it’s a five-minute drive to our newly rebuilt Pompano CitiCentre.  For fresh produce and farm products, it’s also a five-minute drive to GreenMarket Pompano Beach, open every Saturday morning from November through April.  For antiquing at its best, check out the huge Sugar Chest Antique Mall on Federal Highway or Carousel Antiques on Atlantic Boulevard.  Discount stores like WalMart and Target are a 10-15 minute drive.  And of course there is Pompano’s famous Festival Marketplace  described below.

Outlet Shopping
Perhaps the best outlet shopping for clothing, electronics and household goods is at Sawgrass Mills… Nearly one mile long with more than 350 stores, it’s worth the 30–minute drive from the beach to shop there.  Click here for current sales and discounts. Pick up great values at Coach Factory Store, Guess Factory Store, Escada Company Store, Kate Spade New York, Burberry Factory Outlet, True Religion Brand Jeans, PUMA Outlet, Polo, Ralph Lauren Factory Store, Lacoste Outlet, Nautica Factory Store, Juicy Couture and Kenneth Cole Company Store.  Other popular stores include Bed Bath & Beyond, Brandsmart USA, Burlington Coat Factory, JC Penney Outlet Store, Marshalls, Neiman Marcus Last Call Clearance Center, NIKE Factory Store, Nordstrom Rack, Off 5th Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet, Ron Jon Surf Shop, The Sports Authority, Super Target, T.J. Maxx, Vanity Fair Factory Outlet, FYE, Off Broadway Shoes, and GAP Outlet.

Famous Markets
For more great bargains, try two of our famous local markets.  When the weather is nice, visit the Swap Shop Florida’s second largest tourist attraction after Disney, a flea market with over 2,000 vendors.  If you prefer to stay indoors, try Festival Marketplace…. with over 500 shops and ¼ mile long, just a 15-minute drive from our Beach Vacation Rentals properties.  Find everything from a farmers’ market with fresh fruits and vegetables, to jewelry, household items, shoes and clothing.  Buy designer items, or the bargain-priced designer look-alikes.  Both are open seven days a week, every day of the year!

Trendy Upscale Shopping
High-end shopping is available within a 15-20 minute drive north and south of Beach Vacation Rentals properties.  Enjoy a few hours or all day at the posh Las Olas shopping district off of downtown Fort Lauderdale, with its specialty boutiques, art galleries, jewelry stores, hair salons and outdoor cafes and restaurants.  Another outdoor venue with similar charm is Mizner Park in Boca Raton.  Explore unique stores and enjoy old-world charm at its best.  If you prefer to stay indoors, perhaps the two most attractive shopping malls with the greatest number of high-end stores would be Galleria Mall, on Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale, and also Town Center at Boca Raton, on Glades Road in Boca Raton.

These choices should be a good start to keep you busy.  So stay with us and shop, or as the saying goes, “Shop ‘till you Drop.”  Then rest up at your Beach Vacation Rentals apartment or cottage, and go back the next day and shop some more!

Happy bargain hunting!
