We are all likely familiar with the famous cities around the world for shopping, from Milan to New York to Abu Dhabi and all the rest, but today we want to share some of the best shopping locations in North America that don’t get the level of recognition that we feel they rightly deserve. All of these cities have an abundance of easy and affordable traveling options for anyone in the continental United States and offer many of our favorite designer brands without the hassle of dealing with the major tourist cities.
For a little weekend shopping, why not check out one of these great destinations:
- Dallas, Texas
- The city of Dallas is a true southern gem of the United States. You can visit the flagship stores for both Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s, which simply put blow away they’re typical stores in both elegance and scale. There are several great boutiques and malls in the area as well, like NorthPark, where you’ll be able to find some of our favorite stores like Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Saint Laurent, and Louis Vuitton plus many others and even have the opportunity to grab a quality meal on the premises.
- Edmonton, Alberta
- When most people think of traveling to Canada to shop, Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal often come to mind, but Edmonton in Alberta is actually home to the largest shopping mall on the continent. With well over five million square feet of real estate to explore, the West Edmonton Mall is much more than just shopping. Sure they have some great brands and boutiques to browse, but there’s also everything from a water park to a massive ice skating rink plus mini golf and escape rooms.
- Mexico City, Mexico
- Mexico City is home to the largest Latin American shopping mall, Centro Sante Fe, which features over a million square feet of upscale stores and restaurants. Perisur is another superb mall in the city that’s worth checking out, and while it’s not on the same scale as Centro Sante Fe, it more than makes up for it with a focus on luxury boutiques and services. Shopping in Mexico can be a great way to find excellent deals on your favorite brands and possibly discover something new.
