Scottsdale is Home to the Trend Setters

Whether you’re in the market for the latest high fashion apparel, magnificent fine art, enviable pieces of jewelry or a sensational desert home set on view-rich real estate, Scottsdale, Arizona doesn’t just follow trends—Scottsdale sets them.

Let’s start up in the far North Scottsdale real estate. Right near The Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa, is el Pedregal Festival Marketplace. Reminiscent of an ancient Moroccan oasis, El Pedregal Festival Marketplace boasts fabulous boutiques, fine art galleries and upscale restaurants. During the cooler months, El Pedregal has even been known to host open-air concerts in the courtyard amphitheater.

A bit further south, you’ll find that North Scottsdale also has its share of more traditional, yet still very first-class shopping malls, one of which is Kierland Commons. This intimate outdoor mall includes venues such as Anthropologie, Z Gallery and Michael Kors, as well as some of Scottsdale locals’ favorite night-life bars and restaurants.

Currently, downtown Scottsdale is home to more than 100 boutiques, shops and art galleries, plus Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, which enjoys stores such as Barneys New York. Meanwhile, the Old Town Scottsdale section is notable for its Old West ambience and offerings of handcrafted jewelry, pots, rugs and more by Native American artisans. A number of galleries and shops in Old Town Scottsdale also offer a mind-bending array of gorgeous articles and artifacts that are unique to the Southwest.

Not far away, you’ll find a charismatic cluster of chic shopping malls with stores that rival those you find nestled along Los Angeles’s Rodeo Drive. For example, Scottsdale Fashion Square is host to more than 200 premier retailers a la Kenneth Cole, Louis Vuitton and more. Featuring extremely high-end specialty shops and eateries, The Borgata of Scottsdale is an architecturally charming re-creation of the Tuscan village of San Gimignano, Italy, complete with open-air seating, gently cascading fountains and quaint cobblestone walkways.

In nearby Phoenix, Biltmore Fashion Park has an exceptional lineup of stores (Saks Fifth Avenue, Apple Store, bebe, Brooks Brothers, Escada, Tommy Bahama and Williams-Sonoma, to name just a few), as well as a Concierge Center that can supply you with restaurant menus and reservations, valet information and transportation options; in addition, they are always happy to hook their guests up with complimentary bottled water, complimentary package carry-out, and tourism and event information.

For the ultimate shopping experience you might want to check out one of the area’s customized shopping services that utilize luxurious chauffeur-driven limousines and personal shopping experts. It’s just one of many amazing ways to experience shopping in Scottsdale, Arizona.
