Congressional Plaza in Rockville is one of my favorite shopping destinations. I love that I can get my groceries at The Fresh Market, grab a latte at Starbucks, and also pop into one of the boutiques for other essentials all in one stop. Parking is easy and it’s conveniently located on Rockville Pike. I’m sure most moms can relate that time is precious and making only one stop for several errands is essential!
The newest store to join the list of more than 50 stores and restaurants at Congressional Plaza is Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth. The 40,000-square-foot store offers designer clothing at prices up to 70 percent off Saks Fifth Avenue’s typical prices. I attended the grand opening last month and I might have found a few things I couldn’t live without!
And the lower level has the men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing sections as well as shoes and jewelry.
I was surprised at how amazing the prices are….I found adorable puffer vests for my girls for only $20 each! That’s comparable to Target prices but you get the designer brands here!
The jewelry section is a must! I found some adorable earrings and bracelets that will be the perfect Christmas gifts for my girlfriends.
Child’s Play is another one of my favorite stores at Congressional Plaza.
They have the most unique toys and an incredible selection for kids of all ages. I got a jump start on my Christmas shopping for my girls and got them a few items on their wish lists. Child’s Play is also my go-to store for stocking stuffers. They have so many fun little treasures that are the perfect size for the stockings.
They carry all the big name brands like Lego, Calico Critters, Alex, Haba, Playmobil, Fisher Price, Jellycat, Melissa & Doug, and so many more….check out their website to see them all. Plus they have unique brands that you can’t find at the big box stores.
A few other stores that I frequently shop at in Congressional Plaza are the Loft, Lucy, and Ulta Beauty. There is also a Cartoon Cuts where I always take my girls to get their haircuts. And there was a time when my girls were younger when it seemed like I was at the buy, buy, Baby every week! The shopping center has a nice mix of national retailers and boutiques, plus kid-friendly dining options like Noodles & Company, Lebanese Taverna, and Baja Fresh.
Congressional Plaza is currently undergoing a “facelift” to achieve a new & improved look. The enhancements include an expanded outdoor cafe area, a refreshed color scheme and modernized look, fresh landscaping, and updated signage. I have to say the improvements look really great!
Parents should also make note that Congressional Plaza has a fun “Mommy & Me” program that runs April through October. The club meets for a special morning out on the second Thursday of the month with active learning and creative play at all your favorite stores! There are special offers from our eateries, story time, arts & crafts, musical entertainment, prizes and a whole lot more! Click here to sign up and become a member for free!
