    I absolutely love Artegon,but the signs on I-4 and other places don’t describe what it is. The name gives a hint, but 99% of people have no idea. Highlighting individual shops would be more effective. Just add the slogan “ONLY AT ARTEGON!!! Orlando’s Number one source for ORIGINAL GIFTS”. A huge sign just saying Artegon is about 1% effective. I’m speaking as a fan. I bought the Himalayan Salt USB lamp for my desk, and love it. We also got the best frozen yogurt and a bunch of discount books for my wife’s niece.

My name is Mark and I’m a mall-aholic. As a native Orlandoan, I’ve been visiting them since I can remember. I’ve also worked in a couple and consider myself a self-appointed expert. There’s been a lot of change when it comes metro Orlando’s mall landscape, and I’ve taken it upon myself to chronicle it. Each mall has a story to tell, and having graduated from the University of Central Florida and double majored in journalism and radio/television, I feel I’m best equipped to make those stories come alive here at Orlando Mall Guide. So whether you’re a local or a tourist needing a shopping break from the attractions, I’m your hookup.
