  • Put on your best walking shoes. There is a huge parking lot across the street from the Swap Shop. Entrance fee to the parking lot is $2.00 even for handicap parking. From the parking lot to the pedest...  more »
  • About had a heat stroke but couldn't stop looking at everything. It was pretty cool to see the restaurant and entertainment right in the middle of all of it. I love flea markets, this was fun!  more »
  • I loved it from A to Z ! The prices are cheaper than an actual theater and the experience is WAY better. You're in your own car, you can bring whatever you want, no one is going to disturb you as you ...  more »

  • Pretty neat place to check out....not to many deals most shops refuse to even negotiate with prices...I like negotiating when your at a flea Market setup, just don't expect that here. Most shops are the same and carry the same merchandise. Prices for clothes are normal $15 tops $25 pants/jeans nothing special not many deals. Produce Market has good prices and good food....awesome cars...Drive In Movies is pretty neat!!
  • This is a fun experience. It's always exciting. Several places inside to eat. Parking can be a pain on the weekends, usually because it is packed. They charge a couple dollars to park on weekends. Awesome car collection to check out inside. You never know what you will find here when shopping. Easy to locate. Fun place to just wander around and window shop.
  • Date night is great for the old folks , like the old day's bring your own food , the cost is so much less and you see the latest releases in the comfort of your own car , goodbye indoor theatre's i hope we keep our drive inn movie's for many year's to come ,
  • The only word I can really think of to describe this place is a flea market, but that is totally undermining what this place actually is. The swap shop has everything you could ever imagine in it it's basically an indoor outdoor mall with discounted prices on brand-name clothing, shoes, electronics, car stereo systems and rims, etc. They also have a food court with a variety of food which is great. And, also a children's area with rides, games and so forth. The first time I ever went there I only had $50 which I thought would be insufficient. I walked away with several pairs of shoes and several new outfits as well. It was absolutely amazing! I was definitely hooked for life! Every time I head to Miami I make sure I stop in Ft. Lauderdale to go to the swap shop before I do anything else. This place is amazing and definitely worth a trip there. If you do not make an attempt to go you're absolutely missing out on a great experience. PS... This place also has plenty of children's clothing, shoes, and anything else you could think of fragrances, makeup, and so on. Like I said this is basically a mall with discounted prices as to the point where anybody could walk out looking and smelling amazing. Great place👍💓💯
  • Love it. Got items that I need at a cheap prices. My kids love the rides and the giant video arcade.
