City Place is a gathering of upscale shops that sell a variety of great items. If you've got money to spend, this place can take care of you! They also have a Starbuck's which are surprisingly hard to find in this area for some reason.
What to buy: If you want nice Jewelry, this is your spot. Guys can check out the model car shop. There's also a store that sells carved jade and old ivory. History buffs or Autograph collectors will enjoy the autograph gallery on the main walkway not far from the fountain.
Stop by Bacio for Authentic Italian Gelato, it's the BEST!
What to pay: I spent about $6.00 on Gelato. You could easily drop $6,000.00 if you aren't careful.
