This place is a great place to window shop. Everything is designer so you really have to be into your designer labels and things to enjoy all the shops. If not just strolling along and window shopping is fun enough.

Window shop or max your credit cards, lol. Make sure you see this. Over the top shopping experience for sure but it's the pulse of the fashion industry.

You could spend a whole day walking along here and just taking in the atmosphere. Lots of noise, crowds, traffic, designer shops and great buildings. It's slow going at times as there are so many people and you have to wait for the lights at every block. There's so much to see so don't try to rush it and just... More

LOVED the shops here. Bring lots of plastic & have fun! Be careful at rush hour or you'll never get a cab out of there!

Longer road than I expected, but easy to find, on fact - every time we were looking for somewhere on our recent trip to New York, we would find ourselves back on fifth avenue at some point & we're able to find our way from there! There are some lovely (& expensive) shops down fifth avenue, and despite everything being... More

One of the most iconic streets in the world. Great shopping, great shopping, great shopping. The ave. also has some great places to get a cocktail or perhaps something to eat like Trump Towers, The Andaz, or The Plaza. With other locations such as Grand Central Terminal, and Bryant Park just a block off the ave. It's a great way... More

It is absolutely thrilling to walk along this famous avenue. All, and I mean ALL the famous designers' stores are here; and something for everybody, including children. Sorry if you are short of funds (as I was), but worth a memorable walk at leisurely pace

Fifth Avenue runs parallel to Central Park and it's famous, chic and expensive. If you like window shopping, then you will like this. It's equally famous for hosting annual parades of many nationalities, but put on the map by the Saint Patrick's Day Parade.
