  • Outlet Malls in the Northwest
Anyone who loves the outdoors loves the northwest. For many of us living in other parts of the United States, much of the northwest is an enigma, overwhelming us with its majestic beauty. One would not think of this region as a place populated with outlet malls, and admittedly, you won't find one on every corner. Like everywhere else, it just takes knowing where to look.

Regional Highlight: Located close to I-84, Boise Factory Outlets in Idaho's state capitol, has over 400 brand names for bargain hunters to shop. If flying into Boise, the outlet is just three minutes away, making it very easy to get a little shopping in between layovers.
