It’s time to talk shop: E-commerce may be easy, but there’s nothing quite like the delight of a real-life retail spot. And the ones in the United States are unparalleled.

Whether you’re looking for a massive mall dotted with department stores and loaded with luxury labels, or would prefer to bag a bargain brand at one of the country’s omnifarious outlets, shopping should definitely be on your list when planning your trip to the USA.
