SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA – Splurge or Save Fort Lauderdale Style!
Get ready. Get Set. Shop! Reef is minutes from Galleria Mall and is a perfect launching point for your very own shopping extravaganza! Take a Water Taxi and go on a scenic walk to the Galleria from the closest Water Taxi dock to visit many of the finest, well-known department stores and shops in the United States.
Of course, if you need groceries for snacks or if you’re planning a meal or two in your Reef Hotel room, you’ll want to go across the street from the Galleria (Sunrise Boulevard), to the fully stocked Publix Supermarket. CVS is conveniently located at Beach Place.
A little further away from Reef Hotel , is Sawgrass Mills where you can get name-brand clothing heavily discounted at more than 400 retailers and popular outlets! You can spend days here and it’s been noted that more people travel to Sawgrass locally and from around the world than go to Disney World. There’s also a lot for kids to do there: video games, movies and much more! Fortunately, transportation to this giant alligator-shaped building and other shopping malls can be found by taking local shuttle buses or going on advertised shopping tours.
Greater Fort Lauderdale has so many various places to shop, you’ll want to plan and pace yourself! On the one hand, if you want to hunt for local bargains, visit the sprawling Swap Shop Flea Market. And yet if you and your family are desiring quintessential Fort Lauderdale ambiance, sea breezes and swanky galleries and boutiques, Las Olas Boulevard is the superlative shopping area to visit.
