In Need Of Retail Therapy? Here Are The Best Shopping Streets In The Country
We all have our reasons for traveling. If you are inspired by the call of retail, here are a few of the most famous shopping streets in the country. Grab your favorite shopping buddy, prepare your wallet, and dive in for a full day of retail therapy.
San Francisco is filled with gems when it comes to shopping. Fillmore Street is where you should head if you are looking for up and coming designers and trends. The stretch between Jackson Street and Geary Street is lined with retailers, eateries, and less commercial options waiting to be explored.
A real Boston-feel, Newbury Street is lined with brick buildings, blooming trees, quaint cafes, and luxury designer names. You can easily walk from one end of Newbury Street to the other in one afternoon, stopping at the Boston Public Gardens at the end of the street for a view of the iconic swan boats and majestic greenery.
The Southern charm of King Street is one-of-a-kind. This historic avenue is mixed with big-name designers and family-owned boutiques. It is also a great spot to for people watching. Grab a seat at an outdoor café and enjoy the characters that pass by.
Iconic 5th Avenue is the destination for luxury shopping. New York is full of shopping destinations for every taste, from the trendy designers that line SoHo to the Upper East Side’s Madison Avenue. However, 5th Avenue still reigns supreme with iconic stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany & Co., Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Rodeo Drive is all about being seen. Park your Bentley in front of Chanel and live out your Pretty Woman fantasy. The gorgeous palm tree-lined street reeks of wealth and luxury, and you will find just about every big-named designer from Prada to Jimmy Choo.
If you are looking for quirky and fun, head to NW 23rd Avenue in Portland. Visit specialty boutiques, family-owned businesses, and up-and-coming designers for a laid-back experience that will feel less stressful than Rodeo Drive and 5th Avenue.
Michigan Avenue hosts many iconic Chicago landmarks like the Chicago Water Tower, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Millennium Park, but when it comes to shopping, Magnificent Mile is home to a huge collection of stores and restaurants to keep you busy all afternoon.
