Stadium
“Best place for souvenirs and gifts! Open Wednesdays and Weekends, unless there is something going on. It's a flea market, swap meet. Many booths. Takes about 2hrs to walk around the whole stadium, depending on how often you stop. Bring lots of cash, but there are many ATMs there, too. Not too much in the way of eat and drink.”

Flea Market
“You have to do your souvenir shopping here - no where else. They have so many vendors that have the same things for sale at a fraction of the cost then you will get in any store - for real! They are only open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from like 8-3. Go early and wear a hat and bring an umbrella it's an all outdoor market and it get's super hot. Bring your water bottle too and wear plenty of sunblock! It's only $1 per person to get in. Take a picture of where you parked for sure as it's easy to forget after all that shopping. Enjoy and find those bargains!”
