1. Fashion Valley

San Diego

Home to over 200 stores, including fashion houses Hermès, Prada and Louis Vuitton, Mission Valley’s mecca of fashion has something for everybody.

Desert Hills Premium Outlets®

Palm Springs

The preferred playground of Old Hollywood, the palm-tree-lined landscapes of Palm Springs have been attracting travellers looking for world-class spas, five-star accommodations and capital shopping all in the one place for decades. Take a day off from basking by your resort pool to explore over 180 designer stores, from Alexander McQueen to Bottega Veneta, at the largest collection of luxury outlets in California.

The Shops at Crystals

Las Vegas

Crystals is the most striking shopping centre on The Strip. If you win big at blackjack, waltz inside Christian Dior, Prada, Hermès or Harry Winston, before ordering the grand seafood tower at Maestro’s Ocean Club and walking among the numerous art installations – Glacia’s carved ice pillars a guaranteed highlight.

The Forum Shops at Caesars®

Las Vegas

Set amid the golden statues of Caesars Place, the lavish Romanesque architecture and décor of The Forum Shops at Caesars transports visitors to another time and place. Fashionistas can browse over 160 speciality shops, from Cartier to Jimmy Choo, before taking lunch in one of the countless highend restaurants, including high-flying celebrity chef outposts such as Water Grill and Il Mulino New York.

Woodbury Common Premium Outlets®

New York

Fifth Avenue might be home to some of the world’s ritziest retailers, but seasoned shoppers know the best shopping can be found outside the city. Just an hour north of New York, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets is internationally renowned as the largest collection of designer outlets in the world. Shop in style by getting picked up by a private SUV at your Manhattan hotel.
