If you like to shop, Scottsdale is the place for you! The Borgata if Scottsdale is AMAZING! The beauty of this mall is worth seeing even if you don’t spend a penny. It’s like having a bit of Italy!
The setting is straight from the Tuscan village of San Gimignano, complete with cobblestone walk ways, fountains and an open air setting. Friday’s Jazz at the Borgata runs through April and features live jazz music, fabulous food with beer and wine.
The shopping experience here is like shopping at national specialty shops. The greatest part is dining after a great day of shopping and sightseeing. The restaurants in the Borgata are to die for!
If you are more of an out door shopper, there is the Phoenix Swap and Shop. The Swap and Shop offers 54 acres of shopping with 2,000 vending spaces! There is always free entertainment and it has a carnival type atmosphere. Don’t let the outdoor part keep you away because there are a lot of shaded areas with misting systems. It’s not just on weekends! The Park and Swap is open Wednesday through Sunday. This is a great way to spend a day with the family.
For me, the outlet malls are where it is at!
Outlets at Anthem is the perfect one stop shopping. There is Tommy Hilfiger, Polo Ralph Lauren and All Star Golf for men, Carter’s, Osh Kosh and KB Toys for the little ones, Quicksilver, Nike, Levi’s and Gap for the teens and for mom…Bed and Bath Body Works, Kitchen Collection, Ultra-The Gold and Diamond Outlet, L’eggs as well as Motherhood Maternity. These are just a few of the 100 outlets stores in this mall.
Finally, there is Scottsdale Downtown with its 400 unique shops, spas, galleries, restaurants and clubs. This is truly a great place for any taste. The Kierland Commons is an upscale development with 70 high-end specialty stores, dining and entertainment. Boulders el Pedregal Festival Marketplace is an exciting marketplace full of colors and energy. The marketplace features fine dining, apparel and galleries. It also features the Heard Museum North.
Scottsdale is truly a shoppers dream!
