District at Green Valley Ranch
At a Glance
What is it?
An outdoor collection of stores designed to evoke a bustling Michigan Avenue style street, complete with brownstone building facades masking offices and upscale loft/condos above the boutiques.
Where is it?
It’s located right next door to the fantastic Green Valley Ranch hotel and casino, which is worth going out of your way to visit.
What do they sell?
More than 50 stores and restaurants include Anthropologie, Aveda, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, Elephant Bar, PF Chang’s China Bistro, Ben & Jerry’s, Cheesecake Factory, Whole Foods Market, and more.
What are the prices like?
More expensive than your garden variety mall, but mostly because the stores are a little more high-end.
What should I be sure to check out?
If you were paying attention to the store listing above you may have noted Ben & Jerry’s. That’s definitely worth checking out, especially on a hot summer afternoon.
Why should I shop here?
Because you’re in the neighborhood and you have some extra time on your hands.
What else do I need to know?
Of the many restaurants, Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que is especially noteworthy.
What’s the bottom line?
It’s really not a place to go out of your way to visit but worth checking out if you are in the area.
