Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay

An upscale shopping center with great sale racks

This upscale shopping center is a dream: clean bathrooms, great dining options and all the major stores you could ask for (except Neiman Marcus). But the keyword is “upscale” — if you’re on a budget, stick to the sale racks and you won’t go home with empty hands (or an empty wallet).

Yes, the Hermes sells children’s clothing. Nevertheless, don’t worry about dressing to the nines to fit in; you’ll see plenty of t-shirts and shorts. But when you’re poking around Saks looking for a saleswoman, looking stylish never hurts. Just saying.
