While Herald Square may at first seem like a tourist trap, there are plenty of stores to shop for everything from designer clothes to elegant jewelry.
The great thing about this shopping area is that there are stores for every budget. H&M, Forever 21 and Gap sell affordable items while stores like Macy's and JCPenney offer higher-end products. When you need a break, slip into one of the nearby restaurants or warm up with a cup of coffee. In the summertime, I like to sit on one of the outdoor chairs and read a book.
Herald Square is not hard to miss. Head to the intersection of Broadway, Sixth Avenue and 34th Street and you'll find more stores that you can count.
