A nice outdoor shopping center in Miami is The Falls Shopping Center. With the warm temperatures, it’s a great place to go for a stroll and there are lots of good stores.

Information about The Falls Shopping Center

Since Miami has a warm climate all year round, it is a good idea to go shopping outdoors. This is exactly what tourists from Germany love and you can compare this with a pedestrian zone. However, The Falls Shopping Center is built like a shopping mall. The concept is similar to the Bayside Marketplace and if you want to go shopping in the evening you are right there.

Usually all big shopping malls in Miami are in an air-conditioned building. If it is raining then this is very practical. But if the sun is shining outside you would rather be outside and enjoy the sun. That’s exactly what you can do there and you feel like you’re in a tropical garden. As you know from Florida, everything is beautifully maintained and particularly pleasing to the eye.

Location and address

Before visiting, you should of course find out where The Falls Shopping Center is located. The location is southwest of Miami Downtown and with a rental car you can reach this shopping center quickly. It takes between 25 to 30 minutes and the distance is 15 miles. But in Miami you also get lost quickly and there are multi-lane roads. Thus, you can be quickly overwhelmed as a driver there, especially if you are on vacation in a foreign city.

We recommend to enter the address 8888 SW 136 St, Miami, FL 33176 into the GPS navigation device. Then you should follow the navigation there and then you will find it the fastest. If you get lost once, just take the next exit. However, you may not be able to turn around right away.

Opening hours

The opening hours of The Falls Shopping Center are very convenient. You can go there every day of the week from Monday to Saturday between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM. On Sunday you have less time and it is only open from 12:00 PM to 7:00 PM. But you have to know that there are always more visitors on weekends. If you want to have more peace when shopping then you should go there during the week.

It is certainly very practical if you have booked a hotel nearby and then you can go there more often. We recommend for a visit already between two to three hours to plan. Or even a whole afternoon because you have to add the travel time. On this route is also another shopping center and that is the Dadeland Mall. You practically drive by there. This is only 4 miles away and if you want then you can connect these two malls.

How many stores and brands are there

The Falls Shopping Center has a total of 123 stores and restaurants. By Miami standards, it’s not that big, but it’s still big enough to spend a few hours there. Of course you can find many American brands like Abercrombie & Fitch, Apple Store, Bath & Body Works, Brooks Brothers, Coach, Columbia, Gap, Hollister, Macy’s, Michael Kors, Victoria’s Secret and many more.

Basically, you can find the same stores there as you would in a large mall like Dolphin Mall. But if you prefer to go shopping outdoors then you should visit this mall. Especially when the weather is good in Miami, it is always worth to go there. Because shopping is one of the most popular activities of tourists on vacation.

Eating and Drinking

If you spend a few hours in The Falls Shopping Center, you will surely get hungry and thirsty. This is of course no problem and you will find numerous restaurants and cafes where you can get something. You get there from pizza, burgers to pasta everything you want. A few fast food chains are also present there with a branch. When you visit a restaurant in Miami, you should always remember to tip. If there is a waitress there is no way around it. With a fast food chain you do not need to give this then.

Is there a cinema there

Furthermore, The Falls Shopping Center is equipped with a cinema where you can watch the latest Hollywood movies. But of course the movies are shown only in English. If you have only school English, you will not understand much there. But this is certainly a good way to learn the language. In the American cinemas, of course, always the top films are shown that you can not see in Germany, for example, yet. Therefore, a visit to the cinema is always a good idea.

How are the prices there

Very important are of course always the prices in the stores. In our opinion, these are similar, or even the same as in the other malls in Miami. Of course, you have to look specifically for the bargains and especially during Black Friday you can always buy cheap. But there are always good offers in The Falls Shopping Center that you can take advantage of.

You have to know that you can buy as a tourist from Germany maximum 430 euros duty free. If you are over this amount then you have to pay duty on arrival in Germany. Maybe you want to buy the latest smartphone there and then you are above this sum. But if you are several people then you can distribute this.

Our opinion

Especially if you want to go shopping outdoors, a visit to The Falls Shopping Center is a good idea. There everything is wonderfully maintained and shopping is a lot of fun. If you don’t want to shop there, it is always worth a visit. But there are also many similar malls in Miami that you can visit.
