"Shopping like mad!" King of Prussia by Belsaita

King of Prussia Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 27 photos

This is, by far, the HUGEST shopping mall I ever seen. Well, some say it's the biggest mall in the US (others say it's the biggest of the East Coast and there is an ever bigger somewhere in West Coast, it seems it depends in you account some stores and cinemas as part of the mall or not... or at least this is what I was told by my colleages)

In any case, apart from byzantine discussions about it's size, it's a shopper's paradise. And it's tax free!

I would never been to the US just for shopping, of course. I'm not a big fan of malls. These are so dull, they look about the same all over the world, for me this one was just like the Barcelona's mall "Gran Via 2" on steroids :))

But it happens that my company's headquarters were located in Wayne, PA, next to King of Prussia. Every time we had a company meeting the staff from other offices used to stay at the Hotel Crowne Plaza Valley Forge, just in the mall area. So, as I usually arrived the day before the meeting, I had some time for shopping on these business trips. Not bad.... it helped to be awake despite the jetlag! ;-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:You can find there (nearly) anything you want or need
  • Cons:Too big, go plenty of time or carefully plan your shopping!

    Yes, there is also a mall in Minnesota that claims to be the biggest.
    I am also not a big fan of malls. Very time consuming. Hard to find what you want, even if they do have it somewhere.
