Traffic on U.S. 1 to this outdoor shopping center can border on brutal, but once you get there, the vibe leans toward the serene, with landscaping involving water (and fountains but no actual falls) and tropical foliage. You’ll find a multiplex and more than 100 stores both moderately priced and upscale-ish, including Ralph Lauren, Miami’s first Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Crate & Barrel, Brooks Brothers, Abercrombie, and Swarovski. If you are planning to visit any of the nearby attractions, which include Metrozoo and Monkey Jungle, check with customer service for information on discount packages.
