The fishing pond, hiking trails, social events and shuffleboard court at Ellington Gardens RV Resort give residents many hours of delight. However, sometimes the mood strikes to head into town. When it does, we suggest shopping at Ellington Premium Outlets and taking high tea at Charms of Leffingwell.

Ellenton Premium Outlets

The 130 stores at Ellenton Premium Outlets beckon you to browse through famous brands of merchandise, including Ralph Lauren, Nautica, Off Saks Fifth, Chico’s, Brook’s Brothers and much more. An attractive mall, it features covered walkways, fountains and tropical landscaping, as well as shady spots with benches. If you love to cook, don’t miss the kitchen and food store, which carries hard-to-find items for culinary endeavors.

Charms of Leffingwell

After several hours of shopping, you’ll be in need of some rest and refreshment. Stop at Charms of Leffingwell, which is only a mile west of the outlet mall. Relax in the calming beauty of a Victorian home that has been restored to its original splendor. Sip cups of hot tea, and feast on cucumber sandwiches and cakes, along with honey scones with sweet cream and jam. The address is 905 Leffingwell Avenue in Ellenton. It is open on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
