Well I feel were all here talking about high-end shopping as if we all shop there regularly and were rich! lol. The best shopping to me is any place with a Champs, Journey's, or Dillard's. I'd even settle for Citi Trends or some hole in the wall urban outfitter place. I'm not really into expensive clothes/shoes like Ed Hardy or Jordan's.

I voted New York only because the first thing I think of is 5th Avenue---followed by Rodeo Drive--but obviously these are examples of very isolated locations--not a whole state.

I was thinking the entire state Not just one city out of the state that has good shopping. Thats why i would say TX Fl CAl because they have Lots of citys with lots of Upscale and regular retail shopping Like NY state I cant go to syracuse and get the same thing i can in NYC but in TX i can go to Houston and then Dallas and get same shopping or more

Naples??? my parents live there and I go often. It definitely doesn't have top notch shopping. 5th avenue is nice with some nice upscale shops, but it doesn't compare to most major cities.

That is the key. They have a lot of very TINY shops with not much selection in any of them.

I am Rachael's Mom. I also work across the street from the Waterside shops.

I tried finding a vintage store in Naples and found none. Was going to try and go shopping for anything vintage since I'm having a 1940s themed wedding. I was real disappointed in the lack of selection in any kind of stores down there in Naples.
