It’s that time of year again and the holiday season brings with it ample opportunities for shopping excursions. For the 11th consecutive year, Greenwich CT celebrates the best shopping days of the season with its townwide holiday stroll. This annual event highlights Greenwich’s downtown shopping district, often referred to as the “Rodeo Drive of the East Coast” which is an excellent place to find boutique clothing, shoes, outerwear, and accessories.
There is a shop for everything and everyone in the downtown Greenwich shopping area. Spas, antique dealers, art galleries, convenience stores, and so much more are all available in one convenient location. Restoration Hardware, Benefit, Sephora, Lulu Lemon, Apple, Good Stuff, Betteridge, Brooks Brothers, Hoagland, Orvis, and Fjallraven Kankin.
Since shopping is hungry work, it is quite convenient that the downtown area is peppered with superb places to dine or enjoy a cocktail or coffee. Greenwich coffee roasters, a short walk from Tiffany and co., Vineyard Vines and Saks 5th Avenue, roasts their beans by hand and offers cappuccino, lattes, and espresso. For lunch or dinner, be sure to visit EastEnd, Harvest Wine Bar, Back 40 Kitchen, Terra Ristorante or Mediterraneo for an unforgettable meal. For shoppers who preferred a bite on the go, a food truck court was available.
The holiday stroll also included the neighboring areas of Cos Cob, Byram, and Riverside. The shops put their best face forward with festive decorations in the storefronts and the town of Greenwich ensured that lights, garlands, and festive ornaments were lining the streets for the event. Toy shops, clothiers, and suppliers of products for the home all participated in the holiday stroll.
Greenwich Avenue is a lovely place to spend a leisurely day strolling, shopping, and dining year-round, however, it has a special sparkle during the holidays that is worth the trip. If you find yourself in the Fairfield County area, be sure to stop by.
