Disadvantages: Sore feet at the end of the day due to all the shopping lol!
I visited Woodbury Common Outlets as part of a major shopping trip to New York in February 2007. The excursion was booked through Grayline Tours and cost around $45 dollars return.
The scenery on the way to the outlets was very picturesque. As it had recently been snowing in NYC at that time, a large stretch of rock face on route to our destination was snow covered and looked very festive indeed, almost like snow covered mountains.
I was surprised that the outlets were rather far out from Manhattan itself and it took approximately an hour to get there. The shops are spread around a little mock village, which was very charming and pretty in my view. Boasting 220 stores, there is certainly something for everyone at Woodbury Common. Featuring outlets from brands such as Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch, Tommy Hilfiger and Juicy Couture to name but a few, there are many bargains to be had throughout this mini shopping village.
Given that the exchange rate between sterling and the dollar was so good at that time, I managed to pick up a Ralph Lauren hooded top for £10, a pair of Levis jeans for £14 and an FCUK top for £6! Those were just a few of my bargains that I found that day and I was chuffed with what I got for the small price that I paid.
There are also many places to go for a bite to eat in Woodbury Common. It is home to a McDonalds, Starbucks and various other grills, restaurants and pizzerias - so there is a wide choice of cuisine available to suit every appetite under the sun and give you that much needed opportunity to re-fuel and relax for a little bit before the bargain hunting resumes!
However, if you are too entranced by the bargains on offer to take time out like I was, then there are several vending machines offering drinks and snacks positioned all over the outlets to ensure that you do not go hungry.
Are you visiting New York in the future? If so, I would highly recommend a trip to Woodbury Common. Not only is it great for shopping, but it also gives you the opportunity to see and explore outwith New York City itself. I found it to be a fantastic way to spend a day and the fact that there are so many stores there means that you are literally free to shop until you drop.
I only wish that such amazing bargain filled shopping havens existed in the UK and if I have the opportunity to return to New York in the future, this is one place that I will definitely visit again.
