I am new to the area from Arkansas. Are there any upscale shopping areas, like the plaza area of Kansas City, in this area??

Town Center and Hill Top shopping area ring a bell. Williamsburg outlet mall is about an hour away.

Hilltop, Towncenter and MacArthur Center have some nice stores.

If your asking about upper scale as in Saks, Bloomies, etc. your gonna have to go to the DC area for that as this area does not have the clientele needed to support them.

Macarthur Center has a Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, etc.
2 hours away in Richmond, there is Saks, Louis Vuitton, etc.
There are some higher end outlets in Williamsburg like Burberry, Coach, True Religion, and Lacoste, but their merchandise tends to be outdated and overpriced, IMHO.

Hilltop would be my 1st choice because it is pleasant.

Quick mall review for you: MacArthur (named after the fabled WWII leader, Gen. Douglas MacArthur) is trying to clean up its act by enforcement of the "no pants on the ground rule" and the atmosphere has been rather respectable lately. I think all the former MacArthur kids must be car-pooling over to the Lynnhaven Mall to reestablish the thug quotient, although it used to be the best mall. Greenbrier is kind of blase, and I think nature must've reclaimed the Pembroke by now.

Welcome from the good state of AK!
