Sometimes you've just got to hand it to the original: Dadeland Mall has been around since 1962, and it's continually evolved and grown even as the retail industry spirals down the toilet. Dadeland remains the people's mall — a place where you can either pop into Zara for your fix of fast fashion or strut into Saks Fifth Avenue to snag some designer stilettos. For parents, there's a children's play area, and for tourists, there's an entire visitors' bureau onsite. The dining options are plentiful too: Sure, the mall has refined spots for sushi, steak, or salad, but you can still find classic food-court fare such as Auntie Anne's, Charleys Philly Steaks, and Mandarin Express. Hours are 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
