Phoenix Shopping and Districts

(Phoenix, Arizona - AZ, USA)

With Phoenix being situated in the middle of the desert, it can get pretty hot during the day. Fortunately, much of the city's shopping is found indoors in huge air-conditioned malls, so you can shop in complete comfort. Scottsdale and Biltmore are the main shopping districts in Phoenix, with the latter home to the upscale Biltmore Fashion Park.

Scottsdale boasts several shopping malls as well as numerous boutiques, independent stores, galleries, jewelry stores, Native American craft shops and souvenir outlets, making it popular among tourists visiting Phoenix.

Opening Hours

Most shops are open from mid-morning through to 18:00, Monday to Saturday and for shorter hours on Sundays. Phoenix shopping malls are normally open later, usually closing around 21:00.

Shopping Centers
