Outlet stores can be a great way to find different styles and to save some money. These outlet stores provide a great shopping experience and fun for the whole family.
I have always loved how a river runs right through this outlet mall. I have vivid memories as a child watching the fish jump out of the water while sight seeing on the bridge.
My little brother would grab my scrunchie and threaten to throw it in the river; those were the days.
The design of this section of the mall (the section with the bridge and river) looks a lot like sections of Vail do.
Banana Republic, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger CO have all set up outlet stores here. The selection of stores at this mall are a little thin, and the trade off would be the mountain villa atmosphere of the shopping area.
The Colorado Mills Mall is located in Lakewood on your way to the mountains from Denver. It is the only indoor mall in this list, so this is the mall I recommend when the weather is bad outside.
I still remember when the mall was brand new, and now the mall is starting to show its age a little bit. I do make the drive up here for some of my favorite stores, and if I want to walk around on a rainy day.
The strangest thing about Colorado Mills Mall, is that it is not all outlet stores.
It does have big name outlet store names such as Guess, Saks Fifth Avenue and Eddie Bauer. However, most of the stores are not outlet stores.
Because of this, many Denver natives have forgotten that Colorado Mills Mall is an outlet store.
Colorado Mills Mall makes a complete circle which is a mile long. It is my favorite place to walk around and have a pleasant afternoon indoors.
The outlets at Castle Rock have a lot of big names; Adidas, Eddie Bauer, Guess, and Coach just to name a few.
It is an outdoor mall, so be careful with the weather. It has cold mountain climate, so you are going to be a little bit chilly if the weather is not very nice outside.
It is a great place for families, as everyone can run to their store and meet at the boulder in the middle when they are done.
Getting some nice ice cream and enjoying some nice mountain sunshine make this a great family destination.
