Forbes ranks Baltimore No. 3 place to shop
Forbes magazine has released its first annual list of the 25 best cities to shop in the United States.
The closest city to the District that made the list was Baltimore, ranked at No. 3. New York came in at No. 22, falling behind Philadelphia (6th), Detroit (14) and Nashville (19). Texas holds the most shopping cities within a state, with Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio all being in the top 10.
Top shopping city criteria included, "....combination of options, ease, and affordability."
So why didn't DC make the list? The city has exclusive stores and boutiques plus trendy retail chains such as H&M, Forever 21, and Urban Outfitters. Apparently we're no match for the outlets and mega-malls.
Perhaps in the next few years we may snag a spot, but until then, we should take comfort in the fact that Baltimore is only a half-hour away. Road trip, anyone?
