The only thing better than shopping is shopping while you’re on vacation! Here are three of the top shopping destinations in Manhattan, as well as some tips on other nearby places to experience.
Elegant Tightwad: The Shopping Tour With Wholesale Prices

They offer several fashion excursions around NYC, including East Village Bargainista, Uptown Consignment Crawl, and Accessory Addict. The tour they are most known for is the tour of The Garment District. Here you go behind the scenes and can purchase designer products at wholesale prices. While you’re there, head north to Hell’s Kitchen and treat yourself to a spa treatment or two at Beam laser bar and spa Manhattan.
Bergdorf Goodman: The Iconic Manhattan Department Store
A shopper cannot visit Manhattan and not go to Bergdorf Goodman, the New York institution of shopping. It is 900,000 square feet and sells $600 million annually. It also boasts a rich history, including selling $400,000 of furs to John Lennon and Yoko Ono on Christmas Eve in the late 1970s. Bergdorf Goodman is a must-see to experience New York luxury.
