Tedder WikiCommonsJantzen Beach Center houses about 30 big-brand stores.

Jantzen Beach Center has a long history of providing smiles for visitors and locals alike. Located near the Columbia River Interstate Bridge (just south of Vancouver, Washington), the center has storied roots as the former site of the Jantzen Beach Amusement Park. While the old-time arcades and attractions are gone, the high-quality, tax-free shopping continues to provide plenty of cheer.

At over 740,000 square feet (68,748 sq m), this expansive outdoor mall is now home to nearly 30 notable brands and big-box stores. Update your wardrobe with new looks from Ross, Lane Bryant, TJ Maxx and Burlington Coat Factory. Guys can check out DXL Men’s Apparel while women treat themselves at Luxury Nail Bar, Ulta Beauty and Bella’s Beauty Supply. Even the kiddos can shop until they drop at child-centric Carter’s and Toys R Us. Finish your family makeover with new kicks from Famous Footwear—and maybe a treat for Fido from PetCo.

Set within sight of the mighty Columbia River, it makes sense that Jantzen Beach Center includes a massive West Marine store. But you don’t have to be a boat owner to appreciate the amazing home goods and bargains at shops like Target, Best Buy, Pier 1 Imports and Home Depot.

When you’ve worked up an appetite scoring great deals, refuel with casual bistro fare at Stanford’s, homestyle eats at Cracker Barrel or quick bites at Jimmy John’s or Panera Bread.
