Shop Like A Local

Day One:

From outlet malls to luxury boutiques, retail therapy is easy to come by in the McAllen area. Enjoy the thrill of the hunt with just a 20 minute ride East on I-2 at Rio Grande Valley Premium Outlets. You’ll find exclusive stores such as Michael Kors, Armani Exchange, & Saks Fifth Avenue's Store Off 5th-as well as your daily basic gear-Levis, Vans, and Nike. With 578,000 square feet of shops, you’ll have a busy morning for sure.

Head back to McAllen's Historic Shopping District. You’ll find both bargains and brand names on these charming blocks. This shopping area is the perfect place to find spectacular special occasion dresses, unique fabrics, party supplies and decorations, gold jewelry, and perfumes. You’re sure to find a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind items in the dozens of mom-and-pop specialty shops. If you can plan ahead, reserve your spot at The Dry Room and indulge in a decadent Brazilian Blowout or Customized Balayage color treatment. Or, just down the road at Capelo Spa, treat yourself to a massage from the lengthy menu of services.

Day Two:

No other city in South Texas offers such a generous variety of locally owned boutiques, salons, and spas. There’s literally something for everyone along the busy shopping district of 10th Street in North McAllen. Not to be missed is Sylvia's, offering stunning clothing from coveted designers such as Rachael Zoe, Tory Burch, and Brighton Jewelry. Also along 10th Street you’ll find boutiques such as Jones & Jones, Maripoza, Shop112, and Imani Imani. If you want to glam up your man, set an appointment at The Man Cave Spa. The Man Cave offers an array of services above and beyond the standard barber in a relaxing environment, even offering a beer or wine with any treatment. And if you’re feeling adventurous, schedule a session or two at Cryo Body Perfections. It offers facials and body treatments using the latest technology in Cryotherapy.

Magic awaits you at the mall. Known as the city’s retail Mecca, La Plaza Mall consistently ranks as one of the highest grossing malls in the U.S. , offering over 1.25 million square feet. It is the ultimate shopping experience in all of South Texas. The mall is home to trendy shopping spots such as Zara, Kendra Scott, and Soma. Gather around a table in the Food Court for something delicious and healthy at Green Leaf's and Bananas or kick back after shopping with a delectable dinner at Texas de Brazil or The Yard House (opening 10/29/2018).
