Shops at Fifth Avenue

Each curve of the Fifth Avenue shopping district beckons pedestrians to follow it in pursuit of ever more luxurious and specialized shops. This is not by accident, but by design and it is the result of the careful, retail-friendliness that defined the town planning ethos of 1950s Scottsdale. The area's shaded arcades and curvilinear streets adapted to the contours of the Arizona canal make it unique in the Phoenix area.
