Dolphin Mall attracts shoppers from all around Miami with its range of retail outlets and restaurants. The mall's position near the Miami International Airport makes it an excellent option for travelers with delayed flights, as well as anyone who forgot their socks or sunglasses and wants to avoid downtown prices.

Recent shoppers say the store options are great and also exalt the food court at the Dolphin Mall, which they say sports a range of eateries sure to appeal to every appetite. The wide selection of eateries mimics the diversity of retail options, which include H&M, Bose and Marshalls. Travelers with kids appreciate the mall's family-friendly options like Dave & Buster's and a movie theater.

Dolphin Mall is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday. The mall sits about 13 miles west of downtown Miami in the Sweetwater neighborhood. Dolphin Mall provides 8,500 free parking spaces, while valet parking costs $7 Monday to Thursday and $10 Friday to Sunday. Shoppers opting for public transit choose between two bus routes, Nos. 7 and 238, which run from downtown Miami to the mall.
