Best of shopping in phoenixContributed by Lindsay Shugerman, Top 10 Guru

Phoenix is one of the most popular cities in the Southwest — home to real live cowboys, stars that look impossibly close in the night sky and breath-taking mountain views.

It’s also home to some great shopping.

Whether you’re heading to Phoenix on business, as a part of a vacation or as your new home, here’s our take on some of best shopping in the city!

Deseret Ridge Marketplace

It’s all here, under the blue Arizona sky

Have you ever said that someone was driving you up the wall while you were shopping? Well, at this mall, you can make it really happen…the mall has a climbing wall!

It also has a Target, Kohl’s, Hot Topic, Scrubs and Beyond, Barnes and Noble and over 100 other retailers, plus restaurants and a Dave & Buster’s arcade.

With all this at one location, it’s kind of hard to know why anyone needs to go anywhere else!

Kierland Commons

Sunshine, splashing fountains and shopping

Why stay indoors when it’s so nice outside? That’s the idea behind the Kierland Commons shopping area in Phoenix.

This beautiful complex is home to Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Sur la Table, Barnes and Noble and more.

The beautiful setting makes this more than just a place for shopping — come to enjoy the setting, stay for lunch or dinner, and then check out the stores. It’s easy to spend the day in such a pretty space.

Biltmore Fashion Park

Find the best looks for your home or your next new outfit

From Vera Bradley to Williams-Sonoma … it’s all here amid the gardens, palm trees and fountains of the Biltmore Fashion Park.

But there’s more here than just shopping. Check out their events calendar for free movies under the stars, free yoga classes and a whole host of special events from Easter Egg Hunts to Holiday Lights to Bridal Shows

Paradise Valley Mall

A cool indoor choice for Phoenix shopping

When summer’s heat makes outdoor shopping just too much to take, head indoors for the shops at Paradise Valley Mall.

Start with the department stores. This mall boasts Dillard’s, J.C. Penney, Sears, Macy’s and even a Costco for those big shopping days. Then check out the rest of the 100+ stores and eateries, from PacSun to Perfumania.

Shepler’s Western Wear

The look and feel of the Desert Southwest

The last listing on our choices for the best shopping in Phoenix isn’t a mall or a shopping center. It’s a store. But oh what a store!

This is the place where you can find all things cowboy (or cowgirl) in Phoenix, from boots and hats to jeans and shirts. Plus they carry western and desert themed home decor and gifts. You can even find a cowgirl wedding dress at Sheplers! Now how many malls can make that claim?

This is a piece of Phoenix you have to see!
