Shopping Guide

As devotees know, there's a lot more to shopping than snapping up an item and slapping down a piece of plastic. The shopping experience encompasses everything from diversions such as movie theaters and craft shows to surprises such as live entertainment and rock-climbing walls. The following descriptions aim to capture the ambiance of different shopping venues in the Greater Phoenix areaŚranging from small, quaint historic districts to large, contemporary "destination malls" where you can shop, eat, and be entertained.
