Strange as it may seem, the factory outlet shopping plaza in Castle Rock is one of Denver's most popular attractions. Maybe it is the scenic 30-minute drive to the quaint town of Castle Rock that draws shoppers to the 135 bargain stores. Its outdoor, lodge-like design blends nicely with the surroundings. Wander around such popular stores as Eddie Bauer, Nike and GAP. Smaller shops include Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen and Bass. A food court resides at the center of the complex.
This factory outlet mall is so large it could apply for statehood. Just 30 minutes north of Colorado Springs, right off of Interstate 25, it is a true tourist attraction, which can be attested by its bus parking spaces. Over 100 shops cluster in the mall's village-like architecture and include everything from toy stores to women's wear. Levis, Ann Taylor, the Gap, Reebok, Calvin Klein and Eddie Bauer are some of the big name shops. A large food court and numerous rest rooms add to the shopping convenience.
You can expect to find a never-ending stock of clothes here. No matter what you are looking for, it is there in the aisles at Nordstrom - be it socks, belts and other formal wear for guys; or handbags, lingerie and sweaters for women. You can also place your orders online. Another great feature about the company is that, if you can't find the product you want in a certain store, they will source it from other locations and ship it to you!
Officially billed as the 'Park Meadows Retail Resort,' this mall's name reflects its attempt to replicate an alpine resort environment. The mall security officers resemble park rangers. Rock formations rise in rest areas, and the pine interior reminds shoppers more of a ski lodge than a suburban shopping mall. Nordstrom and Dillard's anchor the mall's other gift stores and boutiques. It is easily accessible and the perfect place to shop, dine and entertain.
