86 2009 GREATER PHOENIX ULTIMATE GUIDE TO LIVING HERE attractions by Michelle Jacoby I n a place once known only for sun and spas, the Valley is now heralded as a shopping lover's paradise. From one- of- a- kind boutiques to state- of- the-art shopping centers, the city is ripe with shops designed to satisfy your every retail wish. Scottsdale Located at Scottsdale and Camelback roads, Scottsdale Fashion Square is the epicenter of fashion and luxury goods in the Valley. Anchored by Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Dillard's and Nordstrom, this retail mecca offers more than 200 stores and 20 restaurants. The highly anticipated Barney's New York is the newest addition to the center's retail lineup, joining the likes of Burberry, Tiffany & Co. and Gucci. In addition, the center is planning a 100,000- square- foot wing studded with high- fashion retailers including Bvlgari and Cartier. More retail therapy can be had at the nearby Scottsdale Waterfront and Mix Shops at Southbridge, where unique boutiques owned and operated by emerging designers are all the rage. And if that's still not enough, both centers are adjacent to the city's Old Town district, filled with more than 500 shops, 75 restaurants, and 50 salons and spas. For an open- air shopping experience reminiscent of an outdoor marketplace, Kierland Commons in north Scottsdale has more than 70 high- end shops and restaurants along tree- lined walkways, while the Borgata of Scottsdale offers more exclusive retailers in a European-styled setting.
