Enjoy shopping time at Concord Mills, the shopping entertainment destination of the Carolinas. Over 200 stores including manufacturer and retail outlets, off-price retailers, category dominant stores, and unique specialty stores. A festive food court, themed restaurants, and interactive retailers are also part of the shopping adventure. A few of the featured stores are Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Burlington Coat Factory, Old Navy, Off 5th-SAKS Fifth Avenue, and more. Then on to see a town that looks like CHRISTMAS LAND! Each year as Christmas draws near, the small textile town is transformed into “Christmas Town, USA”. The number of trees has increased each year until there are now more than 300,000 red, green, and white bulbs on some 248 trees. One of the favorite spots for viewers is the lake which is situated near the heart of town. Here are 75 trees, ranging in size from 11 to 15 feet, which ring the lake. The reflection of the lights in the water adds to the beauty of the scene. A fountain located in the center of the lake jets water 75 feet into the air at a rate of 3,000 gallons per minute. Lights shining on the fountain go through a sequence of red, green, blue, and amber about once every ten seconds. Returning home approximately 10:00 PM.
