- 1. Top 10 Shopping Streets in the U.S. By Vlad Bogush
2. 1. Fifth Avenue, Manhattan With large landmark department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman sharing sidewalks with high-end boutiques like Versace, Gucci and Christian Dior, this stretch of Fifth Avenue is a veritable shoppers paradise. Visit in December and be dazzled by the elaborate store windows. 3. 2. Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas Just about all the biggest casinos were talking about Caesars, the Bellagio and the Venetian have shopping centers inside their resorts. While youll have plenty of options during your trek down The Strip, you might find yourself exhausted before reaching the end. 4. 3. M Street NW, Washington, D.C. This Georgetown street has clothed politicians and lobbyists for years. While preppy brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren dominate, you can still score the latest trends at shops like Michael Kors and Wink. 5. 4. King Street, Charleston, South Carolina Southern hospitality isnt the only thing in ample supply on this pedestrian-filled street where family-owned boutiques outnumber big-name stores. 6. 5. Fillmore Street, San Francisco Variety rules the street where youll find a book store beside an upscale clothier. Score the newest trends and then score a sidewalk table, all without leaving the stretch of Fillmore Street between Jackson and Geary Streets. 7. 6. NW 23rd Avenue, Portland, Oregon No where else but Portland could you fin such a quirky, hip and fun stretch of shopping street. Chain and big-name stores are blessedly missing here, where independent boutiques rule the road. 8. 7. Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, Minnesota The 13-block stretch of Nicollet known as the Nicollet Mall, is overflowing with retail shops that run the gamut in terms of price points. 9. 8. Newbury Street, Boston Dubbed the Rodeo Drive of the East, Newbury Street is known as much for its regal architectural as for its prestigious stores. 10. 9. North Michigan Avenue, Chicago Most people know it by its nickname Magnificent Mile. It lives up to its more-famous moniker with magnificent stores like Lord & Taylor, Hermes and Brooks Brothers brings the crowds daily, but especially on the weekends. For a break from shopping, Lake Michigan is just a few blocks away. 11. 10. Rodeo Drive, Los Angeles Live out your Pretty Woman fantasy with a little retail therapy in Los Angeles. But since glitz and glamour rules this Beverly Hills street, this therapy wont come cheap. Take advantage of the free valet parking since its the only thing free here! If its one of the worlds most expensive brands, it has a store on Rodeo.
