While Washington, DC boasts its fair share of stores like TJ Maxx and Loehmann’s, there aren’t any outlet malls in the city proper. That said, just a short drive away are three great areas for outlet and discount shopping.
The first and largest is Potomac Mills Mall, a 30 to 45-minute drive from DC. This indoor mall boasts outlet versions of stores like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales, plus hundreds of other stores, a movie theater, an Ikea and much, much more.
We also love the outdoor Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, which offers a number of high-end stores just 20 minutes from Tysons Corner. Find Saks Fifth Avenue, Williams & Sonoma, Restoration Hardware, Barney’s, Burberry and Kate Spade here, among others.
If you’re in the mood to drive about 45 minutes, try Arundel Mills Mall, which also offers Maryland’s best live action casino, Maryland Live! next door. Here, find Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and your standard array of outlet shops, plus a movie theater and dozens of restaurants.
