Back to Things to Do Home


From charming antique shops to chic boutiques to some of the nation’s most fashionable shopping centers, Greater Phoenix can claim some of the best retail therapy in the Southwest.

The basic breakdown for where to find what goes like this: Scottsdale for high fashion; Central Phoenix for vintage; Uptown Phoenix for hipster goods; and downtown Glendale for antiques. Thoughtful souvenirs can be acquired in gift shops at the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Taliesin West and other signature local attractions.
