Just as some people need to take a tranquilizer to fly, others need one to traipse through this mammoth mall -- the largest outlet mall in the country. Depending on what type of shopper you are, this experience can either be blissful or overwhelming. If you've got the patience, it is worth setting aside a day to do the entire place. Though it's located in Broward County, it is a phenomenon that attracts thousands of tourists and locals sniffing out bargains. In 2006, the mall debuted its swank new luxe section, the Colonnade Outlets, featuring outlet versions of Coach, Miss Sixty USA, Salvatore Ferragamo and other luxury outlets offering savings of up to 70%.When driving, take I-95 north to 595 west to Flamingo Road. Exit and turn right, driving 2 miles to Sunrise Boulevard. You can't miss this monster on the left. Parking is free, but don't forget where you parked your car or you might spend a day looking for it.
