For over 40 years, Coral Ridge Mall in Fort Lauderdale has been a staple shopping center and the go-to place for locals and visitors alike. Just blocks from the very popular Fort Lauderdale Beach, and easy to find at the crossroads of Oakland Park and Federal Highway, there is always a friendly crowd to mingle with and plenty of stores to browse.
Coral Ridge Mall was constructed back when Fort Lauderdale was getting its footing as a true vacation getaway in the sun and a popular city to relocate to for the best of the good life, and also at a time when shopping malls were a new thing and springing up across America. This popular shopping center has never lost its appeal as other, perhaps more glamorous, shopping venues have come along. Coral Ridge Mall is a mainstay that is as fresh, contemporary and inviting as the day it opened.
The stores here are a list of America's most treasured: HomeGoods, Marshall's, Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, GameStop, Famous Footwear, the newly enlarged anchor store, Target and, everyone's favorite, the AMC 10 Theatres. Stick around for lunch, too, at Einstein Bros. Bagel or the delightful and delicious Galaxy Pizza or Subway.
Whether you're shopping for a gift or beachwear for vacation, enjoying a casual day of browsing or looking for a safe place for a brisk walk, Coral Ridge Mall is convenient, pleasant and part of local history.
