Tampa Bay´s first upscale mall has all the usual high-end stuff, like $500 shirts, $1,000 purses and laptop computers that´ll tidy up the house while they do your bills, but the place is actually good for deal-hunting too. Dillard´s, especially, has regular blowout sales on designer clothes. Nordstrom is one of the classiest stores in the land and Neiman Marcus is there if you just have too much of that pesky money lying around. International is nicely laid out, and comes with all the amenities, including a restaurant/bar promenade called Bay Street that´s a destination in its own right.
