The Waterside Shops....
Heaven for serious buyers!

Take a trip down U.S. 41 to the Waterside Shops. It is a relaxing, fun day to stroll through the flowing canals with mosaics and fountains highlighted with glass pieces that light up at night. There is often music in the courtyard. It draws an up-scale crowd for its high fashion men's and women's apparel, jewelry and home furnishings. There is a great selection of restaurants to choose from too. You will find some 60 shops and restaurants in this contempory style mall with open air walkways to delight the most sophisticated shopper who expects the finest merchandise amidst a picturesque environment.
Some of the stores found: Cache, lifestyle sportswear and dresses targeting style-conscious women between ages 25-45. Their brands appeal to women who have a youthful attitude, is self-confident and fashion conscious. This is the place to go for all your holiday wear and special events. The selection is superb.
