The excitement of the holidays is officially over and if the winter blues have you feeling kinda blah, why not plan a shopping trip across the border? There are lots of really great shopping malls and outlets that aren’t too far from the city.
Whether you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend or even want to revamp your look, you’re going to want to check out these American shopping malls.
