    If you're a shopaholic, this is your place. If not, it can be interesting anyway. Honestly, I do prefer shopping in smaller places, but it's practical to have "all" together.

    You'll find there an endless selection of luxury department stores and exclusive shops. All top brands are there, for all kind of stuff you might need. If it's not there, it does not exist (or better said, it's not available in the US...) Over 400 stores and restaurants in all!

    I found the place amusing and very convenient, if you carefully plan you "route" you can do all your shopping in a few hours (I had only a free evening on each trip). However, it's interesting to see how different European and US fashion are, so for me, the best buy were jeans, formal clothing, sport's gear and electronics. For casual wear and shoes... I'm sorry, but I'm spoiled by Barcelona's designers and shops!! ;)

    In any case, wear good walking shoes and be prepared to spend a lot of money!

    If there is one thing that any student hears about the war for revolution which lead to the freedom of the 13 colonies, it is the dire situation that was endured at Valley Forge.

    This park is the testament to the pride and memory we have of the events and people of those times. The park has monuments to the men who died and the men who survived, to the leaders (like George Washington) and to the followers.

    Having gained ground on the British forces, the Continental army was forced to hold off for the winter months were closing in on both sides. To give up the ground so bravely won was unthinkable to the army leaders but to put the men through the hardship of the winter of 1777-78 was to weigh heavily on their consciences too.
    But survive they did and went on to become the premier fighting force for the colonies and eventually won the war for independence.

    This is a chain restaurant, but it's a fun one.

    If you plan to visit on a Saturday night, I highly recommend taking advantage of their Call-Ahead Seating. It's really simple, just call in and request to put your name in. When you arrive, they'll give you your buzzer and let you know how much longer (if at all) you have to wait.

    If you have to wait - that's what the bar is for. Have an Ultimate Pina Colada - a delicious combo of Pina Colada and Strawberry Daiquiri. It's not over sweet, the ice is super-smooth, and it also makes a great dessert :-)

    On my most recent trip, I had the Jamaican Jerk Chicken. As I devoured this delicious chicken, I tried to figure out why I had not tried it before since I love jerk seasoning. Turns out it's a new menu item (can't believe they didn't have it before!), so I'm off the hook. The heat on their seasoning is very mild, but it's delicious. This dish is served with plantains and rice, which are sides on many of their entrees.

    The food is good for a store Cafe. The service is fair but quite good with kids. The cafe is located on the top floor.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite food is the scones. I travel quite a distance to eat them. I especially like the raisin scone. I'm a scone fanatic and have eaten scones all over the place. However, never have the KOP Norstroms scones been matched. They are quite large and rich in calories. Of course, that may be why I love them so much. The chef was quite pleased with my praise of his creations! Unlike other scones, these are not soft. They are a bit dry, so order a nice cup of coffee with them. However, it should also be noted that I only eat the raisin scones, and other flavors (e.g., blueberry) may not be so dry.
    My preference is to take the scones out and sit in the nice little Cafe just outside the store (bottom floor) and people watch. As a final note, if you haven't tried these scones, you haven't tried a scone.

    Thanks all for the replies. Just got my itinerary and found out that I will be arriving late at night, around 10 pm. Guess it might be easier for me to take the cab then though I am planning to bring only one big luggage. But with laptop and other stuff, it might still be quite a hassle. Unfortunately the shuttle stops running at 7 pm, if not I wouldn't mind taking that.

    Cheers!

    Disney Store, Gap, Foot Locker, Payless, Aeropostale, Versace,

    They have scheduled events/entertainment in the mall concourse area and holiday specials in many of the stores (like the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus).

    Wear a good pair of walking shoes and have a fat wallet when you come here.

King of Prussia Warnings and Dangers

    The King of Prussia area rated a "low risk" on the crime statistics chart. About the only crime that showed on the records was petty larceny (shop-lifting) and that seldom affects tourists.
    There are 2 sexual offenders registered in the area which is an extremely small percent of the 24000 residents. (see website below)

    You can visit KOP with confidence that you will have a safe time here.
    Just remember to do those little safety things you would do in your own home town and your vacation will be a good one.
