When you get to the Cotton Exchange, stop in the lower level vestibule and take time to read about its history. You’ll find out how these eight buildings, once part of the world’s largest cotton-exporting company, were converted to a shopping and dining complex in the early 1970s. This tri-level mall is a really fun place to explore.
