King of Prussia Mall: Spend a Day at One of the Largest Malls in the Country

August 19, 2014 3:08 pm

While the Mall of America gets the recognition of being the largest mall in the country, the King of Prussia Mall gives it a run for its money. This impressively large mall offers a great mix of over 400 retailers, from Burberry to Forever 21. Whatever your favorite luxury label or mall brand may be, it likely has a home here.

Department stores, like Macy’s and Nordstrom, make up a large portion of the retail space, and there’s both an expansive food court and a number of full-sized restaurants for a quick lunch stop during a day of shopping. Explore both the original Court section of the mall and the newer Plaza, and then pop into the Cheesecake Factory or Legal Sea Foods to fuel up on some delicious grub.

King of Prussia Mall is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. Parking is available in either the large garage or the open parking lots, though it is often quite crowded. To beat the crowds, regulars recommend shopping earlier in the morning.
