Don't let Idylwood's pretty face fool you -- the wooded beauty may bring to mind a remote country village, but all of the unique shops in and around Idylwood remind you that you're still in the DC metro area. Idylwood Plaza, at the north end of the neighborhood, contains a Whole Foods Market, Wylie Wagg pet
store, and several restaurants. On the other side of Leesburg Pike, Tysons Station features a Trader Joe's, Reico Kitchen and Bath, and Pet Supplies Plus.
Just outside Idylwood on the north side, Fairfax Square is an upscale shopping plaza with shops like Nordstrom Rack, Tiffany, and Miele. Across from Fairfax Square, Tysons Corner Center is a huge shopping mall with an outdoor plaza. This mall contains stores like Lord and Taylor, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer, Pottery Barn, Fossil, American Girl, the Lego Store, and Arhaus Furniture.
Head just about a block up International Drive and you'll discover Tysons Galleria, another upscale mall featuring Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade, Williams-Sonoma, Coach, and Lilly Pulitzer.
If you still haven't had your shopping fill, head to the southwest end of the neighborhood and visit the Mosaic District. This mixed-use village has it all -- including great shops. Here, you'll find Neiman Marcus Last Call, Scout and Molly's Boutique, MOM's Organic Market, Alex and Ani, and Anthropologie.
