While visiting Arizona and specifically major areas such as Phoenix and Tucson, you will fill endless opportunities for world class shopping. If its available in New York, Chicago, San Francisco or even La Jolla it can be found while shopping in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Phoenix and Tucson.
It is important to remember that not all your treasures will be found at the major retailers and malls. Unique items, especially those specific to Arizona will be found in the thosands many boutique shops and markets one may encounter in towns and spots along the road.
An excellent "out-of-the-way" store is the Arizona Highways" gift shop. They offer not only the best pictorial books on Arizona, but very "Arizonique" items as well. Their information can be found here.
The Western atmosphere of Old Town Scottsdale is partly real and partly a figment of the local merchants' imaginations, but nevertheless it's the most popular tourist shopping area in the Valley. With dozens of galleries in the Main Street Arts and Antiques District and the nearby Marshall Way Contemporary Arts District, it also happens to be the heart of the Valley's art market.
Everyone loves to check out the deals in the outlet malls. While traveling, you will find these malls just outside of town and they may offer a nice way to take a break from your drive. Pick up a great deal on a handbag, jeans, shoes or ?
Also becoming very popular are the malls that offer musical entertainment in the evening hours as you stroll along the shops or visit a bookstore. As most shopping venues now have restaurants that offer seating out on the patios, this is a great atmosphere for dining and enjoying your visit with friends.
A select few malls have outdoor shopping while most others are enclosed. The outside temperature at the time of your stay will help you decide. The evening hours in the fall and springtimes are excellent for this type of dining.
