SUNSHINE, SAVINGS AND SHOPPING: CITADEL OUTLETS
Located less than 20 miles from downtown Anaheim, the Citadel Outlets offers an unparalleled luxury shopping experience. The 700,000-square-foot center allows Anaheim visitors to shop for L.A. style at 30 to 70 percent off retail prices. The breezy open-air plaza features Assyrian architectural elements and is home to more than 130 world-class brands.
Fashionistas can make stylish splurges at shops including Coach, Bally and the newly expanded Kate Spade New York. The ultimate luxury indulgences can be found at MadaLuxe Vault, a boutique featuring handbags, apparel and accessories from high-end designers such as Gucci, Prada, Fendi and Versace. Coach, along with Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Guess, recently moved into the new two-story building in Center Court. Other guest-favorite shops include classic designers such as Armani and Movado, known for its iconic watch designs for men and women.
For travelers, extra amenities make the trip worth the while. Shoppers can take advantage of additional discounts with a complimentary savings card, plus baggage check services, foreign currency exchange and a luggage re-packing room. Those flying out of LAX can opt for the Shop Until You Drop Off package with transfers from Anaheim to the outlets and on to the airport. This package, along with the L.A. VIP Shopping Day, includes access to the VIP lounge with complimentary Wi-Fi, snacks and drinks.
Citadel Outlets also hosts events throughout the year. The entire month of October is dedicated to Pink Saves, a program designed to support breast cancer awareness and fundraising that includes a fashion show on Oct. 7 walked by survivors. The outlets end the year with a bang, lighting up the L.A. skyline with the world's tallest live-cut tree and the world’s largest bow—it’s a holiday extravaganza not to be missed.
