Nowhere to go, didn’t know what are the nice place to spend weekends with. Fortunately, we were with a lady who knows about outlet mall, where branded items are sold at the cheapest prices. We researched what is the nearest outlet mall here in Dallas. And we found Allen Outlet Mall. Below is the map from Holiday Inn where we stay.
From Mockingbird station, we bought our all day DART pass for $5.00. It took us 1 1/2 hours traveling by train. Why that long? Because it was our first and we didn’t exactly know how to get there except with the help of that map above.
From Mockingbird to Parker Road (Red Line) and we were looking for a Blue Line train but there wasn’t at Parker Road, so we went back to Plano and found no blue line again, rode back again heading Parker Road again 😀 Here we are by the way.
We were lost! We were actually looking for a train that will bring us to North Hub. We’re confused, so we decided to ask from one of the passengers (looks like Mexican). Then he told us to go to Parker Road (where we first went down) and from there ride a bus, no need to ride a train again. Thank you for your help. We finally reached Parker Road which is the finish line, headed towards the information and asked about how to reach the Allen Outlet Mall, from which according to them, we need to ride a blue bus which will depart at 12nn. We’re only a minute to chase the bus on time! Fortunately, we’re on time. We hopped in the blue bus, paid $1.00. And again, went down and rode another blue bus again that brought us to Allen Outlet Mall.
We roughly had almost 2 hours of travel.
First stop was Coach, wow! Coach. My first time 😉 And here’s what welcomed us. I didn’t buy, although the price are great, from $380 to $160 (+ 8.25% tax), and etc. It was fun looking at the items albeit I didn’t buy. No penny 🙁
Then afterwards, headed to Gap Kids, Lacoste, and Nike.
The weather was bad, we can’t endure the cold weather. We left the place at 4.49 pm by the bus, and by the bus and by the DART.
