From Upscale to Casual - Seattle Malls and Shopping Centers

Shopping Malls, Outlets, and Centers in and near Seattle

If it's time to get your shop on, never fear! There are plenty of places to go shopping near Seattle. While there are neighborhood streets filled with local shops, sometimes what you need is a mall. Seattle-area malls are located in areas as far north as Tulalip and as far south as Tukwila. Depending on what you're looking for, you might go for the large and varied Bellevue Square or also large and a little less upscale Southcenter Mall in Tukwila, or you might want to go very upscale with the Bravern. No matter what kind of shopping you're looking for, Seattle has a mall or shopping center for you within a half-hour drive of the city center.

Also worth checking into are the Tacoma-area malls of the South Sound, including Tacoma Mall, South Hill Mall and Lakewood Towne Center.

    Bellevue Square is a fantastic shopping center for just about anyone. The mall is anchored by Macy’s, Nordstrom and JCPenney, but there are literally hundreds of stores here. Stores tend toward being upscale, but you will find many mall standards here as well. Along with shopping, Bellevue Square is also a place to find restaurants. Blue C Sushi, P.F. Chang’s, Ruth’s Chris Steak House and The Cheesecake Factory are just a sampling of the choices here.

    Bellevue Square is part of the larger Bellevue Collection and connected via skybridges to Lincoln Square and Bellevue Place. There's even a hotel (Hyatt Regency) within the Bellevue Collection where you can stay within steps of the shopping...perfect for Black Friday in Bellevue.

    A special perk that you will not find in shopping centers directly in Seattle—parking is free.

    Location: NE 8th Street and Bellevue Way, Bellevue
