Phoenix shopping destinations offer something for shoppers of all stripes.

For upscale window browsing and shopping, head over to the Biltmore Fashion Park. It's one of the best places to find traditional, high-end department stores, outside of neighboring Scottsdale. 

If you're looking for a unique gift or vintage goods, central Phoenix's Melrose District makes for a fun shopping destination. The vintage shopping district, which is centered around 7th Avenue and Indian School Road in central Phoenix, features a motley assortment of vintage shops selling clothes, jewelry, art, furniture and more. 

Another good spot for vintage shopping, and endless browsing, is the Brass Armadillo, an antique mall with two locations in the metro Phoenix area. It's a great spot for laid-back window shopping and treasure hunting. 

For Christmas with a small town feel, head to historic downtown Glendale. The neighborhood offers great antique shopping options, and the historic downtown is magically lit up and decorated for the holiday season. 

Up in North Phoenix, the Desert Ridge Marketplace is hosting nightly snow nights during the holiday shopping season. So, you can shop 'til you drop, and enjoy some family-friendly shopping, too. 

If you're looking for the classic shopping mall holiday experience, complete with photos with Santa Claus, head to Arizona Mills. It's the largest climate-controlled shopping mall in the state, and offers daily photos with Santa through the holiday season.
