Weekend Shopping Getaways

Quick Shopping Trips

Stock your wallets. Pack comfortable shoes. Break out the charge cards and get ready to shop 'til you drop, because we've collected a list of the hottest shopping destinations in the country. Whether you're looking for a killer sale or a killer splurge, here are four of the best shopping meccas in America for weekend shopping getaways.

weekend shopping getaway New York City, New York

From the eclectic, scattered shops of Greenwich Village to the high society fare of Fifth Avenue , New York City offers something for everyone (and every budget). If you can't find whatever you're looking for in New York City, it doesn't exist. Downtown Manhattan carries all the big-name stores, so start there if you're new to NYC. Chinatown offers utter steals for foodies or antique lovers (always remember to avoid street vendors selling electronics or media products, however). Trendsetters should book it to SoHo for some of the most fashionable stores in town. Boho queens and hip shoppers will find home in the East Village, while art lovers will find a haven in Chelsea. Though the best shopping is located outside of Times Square , many visitors do find the larger-than-life signs and giant in-store ferris wheel of Toys 'R Us Times Square appealing. Thanks to easy access to NYC from various Northeastern states, this makes one of the best weekend shopping getaways.

Los Angeles, California

No matter if you're looking to purchase top designer's wares or just drool over them from outside the window, Rodeo Drive is the creme de la creme of Los Angeles' upper crust. Walk down Rodeo and gaze upon Gucci, Armani, Manolo Blahnik, Tiffany & Co...these are the biggest names in luxury fashion, and Rodeo Drive knows it. Be prepared to face some serious attitude from store vendors if you don't look the part. Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice is the proud anti-Rodeo Drive of the area, offering quirky shops and tons of options without the snobbery and name-brand appeal of Rodeo. Looking to take a little Hollywood home with you? Check out the straight-from-the-set wares at It's a Wrap , a Burbank store that sells the wardrobes from top Hollywood TV shows and movies.

Las Vegas, Nevada

They say everything's bigger and brighter in Las Vegas, and shopping is no exception. Though it's not the town for tucked-out-of-the-way shops or tiny boutiques, Vegas is home to lavish shopping arcades and huge mega-malls, perfect for those who prefer to shop until they literally drop. The shopping arcade at Caesar's Palace , Appian Way , has a fantastic Roman-themed marketplace that will drop jaws and empty wallets. The Venetian's Grand Canal Shoppes are a picture-perfect Renaissance experience, complete with gondola rides. For the ultimate Vegas shopping experience, take the shopping equivalent of a pub crawl and visit all the casino's themed shopping arcades. Vegas stores are usually open until 11:00 p.m. or later, so there's no need to sync your shopping schedule to normal retail hours.

Charleston, South Carolina

If you're more into laid-back Southern charm than the fast-paced Vegas nightlife, Charleston is the shopping destination for you. The Shops at Charleston Place are home to top-name designers a la Gucci and Ralph Lauren and there's a Saks Fifth Avenue just steps away. If chic boutiques and scrappy local artisans are more your style, head to the Upper King Street Design District . Best of all, you can book one of the Charleston area's many beach rentals and bury your tired feet in the sand after a long, hard day of shopping.

We hope you've enjoyed our guide to the best weekend shopping getaways.
