One of the most exciting things about blogging is working with local vendors, companies and brands to share a product, service or event. Last week I had the opportunity to partner with Visit Valley Forge to tell you all about the shopping experience in Montgomery County! My first stop...Suburban Square.
Suburban Square is the perfect place to spend the day and shop. It is an outdoor shopping mall area where you can get fresh air while browsing through your favorite spots! There are so many great places to shop & eat there. Here are some of my favorites:
2. Paper Source
3. Free People
4. Urban Outfitters
5. Kendra Scott
2. Not Your Average Joes
OK so as I mentioned earlier, Besito is one of best Mexican restaurants out there. The food is so fresh and yummy and guess what... you can even bring your dog there! Yup, you heard right. Visit Valley Forge recently started a campaign called #EmbarkMontco and so far, 30 restaurants in Montco are pet friendly!
So Suburban Square can literally be your one stop shop on a Sunday. You can get your shopping done, eat some lunch and then hit up the local Farmers Market or Traders Joes for your food shopping. I mean what could be better?! The Farmers Market is so stinkin' cute. I could literally spend hours in there just browsing around! If you have never been, I would definitely check it out!
Black Friday is only a few days away (YAY!) and the sun will be shining so bring your butt to Suburban Square and get shopping! **FYI, Madewell will be handing out little chocolates with a surprise inside on Black Friday :)
The next place I went to last week was the holy grail of shopping; The King Of Prussia mall (KOP). The Christmas decorations are up and Santa is there waiting for you to say hi! I have been going to the King of Prussia mall since grade school and did not know half of the awesome services they provide. Here are a few tips to take away when making a trip there:
1. Vallet Parking is Free (YES FREE!) Monday-Friday. Take advantage of this people! Parking can be so annoying so how great would be it to have some bring your car to you when you have your hands full of bags?
2. Concierge Center - This place is a dream. When you need a break from shopping or just want to hang, you need to go here! They have coffee, snacks and charging stations for your phone (aka heaven). Also, they have a HUGE selection of gift cards for purchase if you just want to pop in for a quick gift idea!
If you are not from the area and coming into town for Black Friday, be sure to stay in one of Montco’s 75 hotels. There is also over 1600 restaurants in the surrounding area, so you have tons to choose from! One of the newest restaurants in the KOP mall is North Italia. It is so delicious and if you love good Italian food you NEED to try it out!
Montgomery County owns shopping in the region. I love living so close to these amazing places and if you are not from around here, it is totally worth making the trip up here!
I had a blast last week shopping and learning new things about these spots that I have been shopping at for years! I hope you enjoyed following along and I wish you happy shopping & many many deal this Friday!
