Potomac Mills Mall

Perfect for the thrifty buyer, Potomac is the East Coast’s largest discount outlet mall. Comprising a staggering 250 shops, it is a half-hour drive south of DC.

Shopping

For a serious shopping spree, Georgetown is probably the most famous area for retail therapy but many neighborhoods have enough boutiques, markets and designer stores to make the city a shopper’s paradise. Malls are in more suburban areas but still easily accessible thanks to their notoriety.
