Shop Til You Drop At Miami's 10 Best Malls



Miami's best malls and shopping centers offer extensive shopping opportunities (from high-end boutiques to bargain shops to outlet stores) alongside ample walking and relaxation spots, and varied dining options. They are often quite pleasing to the eye, both because of their design aesthetic and also because many of these places are frequented by Miami's beautiful, multicultural population (not to mention a few models here and there). 

Tourists should focus their sights on places like Lincoln Road Mall and Bayside Marketplace. These two shopping centers offer unique shops, plenty of gift ideas, and lots of free, live entertainment. Plus, both are located in prime tourist destination spots (South Beach and Downtown Miami, respectively), so you can access them easily via public transit or even by simply walking to them from your hotel.

Those who call Miami their home on a regular basis will recognize many of the other malls we mention here, suburban spots like The Falls and Dadeland Mall, plus more luxurious spots like Aventura and the Bal Harbour shops, where the shopping is great so long as the price tags don't matter.

Then of course we have places that have been visited by every Miamian and every tourist, like the always busy Dolphin Mall, which is popular not only for its specialty and outlet shops, but also for its variety of entertainment options. Read on to learn more about each of these wonderful destinations.
