Many of the brands in the mall are major name brand stores as well as some regional stores. The mall also has a 20-screen movie theater that shows many of the most recent releases.
South of the Citrus Park Town Center Mall is the Plaza at Citrus Park. This large shopping area has some of the biggest names in big box retail. It is also where many major restaurants are located. Many visitors to the mall travel quite a distance and having great restaurants nearby makes it a perfect mall destination. Some of the restaurants include Olive Garden, Chili’s, Smokey Bones, and BJ’s Brewhouse.
Off of Easy Street to the south of the Plaza at Citrus Park is the Big Cat Rescue Corporation. The modest rescue provides a new home for many rescued cats from around the state. It is a great place to visit to see volunteers working to create a better home for many large predatory cats. The rescue provides education while allowing visitors to get up close and personal with some extremely powerful animals. The rescue is located only a few miles away from the Westwood neighborhood.
