In Scottsdale, retail therapy is elevated to high art, where specialty couture and nationally-recognized retailers come together in the name of serious shopping. Whether you’re shopping for the latest piece from a top-name designer, or hunting for a uniquely Arizona gift, chances are you will find it in Scottsdale.
For serious Scottsdale shoppers, the obvious starting point is Scottsdale Fashion Square, one of the region’s largest shopping malls. This luxurious fashion park features a Macy’s, Barney’s of New York, Armani, Louis Vuitton, and other exclusive shops.
For Southwestern and cowgirl chic finds, head to the Fifth Avenue Shops in downtown Scottsdale, where Gilbert Ortega and an assortment of galleries and boutiques offer a trove of Arizona gifts and treasures.
If you want to pick up the perfect Scottsdale souvenir, take a stroll around Old Town Scottsdale. It's full of specialty boutiques where you can pick up a jar of prickly pear jam or desert honey, authentic Native American jewelry and even a funny t-shirt for the folks back home.
If you're staying at the Hilton Resort, plan to shop and lunch at the Hilton Village. This shopping village has a great mix of clothing boutiques and a roster of award-winning, locally owned cafes.
