Did you know that King of Prussia Mall is the largest shopping mall in the United States? While the Mall of America may get more attention and have more floor space, KOP has more retail space than anywhere else. People from all over Pennsylvania and surrounding states travel to this mall to shop at its huge variety of stores. This iconic shopping center has been in operation since 1963. It was originally constructed as two separate buildings called The Plaza and The Court, but in August 2016, a major expansion was completed which completed the two buildings.
