Twenty-six million visitors a year flock to this mall, 10 miles west of downtown Fort Lauderdale, making it Florida's second-biggest tourist attraction (after the one with the mouse). The ever-growing complex has a basic alligator shape, and walking it all amounts to about a 2-mile jaunt. Count on 11,000 self-parking spaces (note your location, or you'll be working those soles), valet parking, and two information centers. More than 400 shops—many manufacturer's outlets,
retail outlets, and name-brand discounters—include Gucci, Guess, Gap, and Ron Jon Surf Shop. Chain restaurants such as P.F. Chang's, the Cheesecake Factory, Grand Lux Cafe, and Rainforest Café are on-site. The Shops at Colonnade cater to well-heeled patrons with a David Yurman jewelry outlet and other shops including Valentino, Prada, Burberry, Kate Spade New York, and Barneys New York. For those with little ones in tow, Barbie: The Dreamhouse Experience is a must stop on the Sawgrass circuit. Non-locals are entitled to a free coupon book at guest services.
