What to pay: Depends what you want and where you go! There are always great sales one place or another...always check the newspaper! Also, Sawgrass Outlet offers great merchandise at discount prices...check them out! Word of caution...it is impossible to see all of Sawgrass in one day! Take a water bottle, comfortable shoes & plan to have lunch at the Rainforest Cafe, a most deligntful African safari themed restaurant with animated ceramic animals that "come to life" as you eat! It is a big hit with teenagers and youngsters, too. (I confess I fall into neither category, but always get a big kick from eating there!) ALSO...I am not usually big on flea markets, but we have a really unsual one that is tons of fun! It is called the Swap Shop and it has indoor shopping as well as an outdoor HUGE flea market. The best part of all is that it has a CIRCUS on site that performs daily! Lots of fun, don't miss it!
