A Day to be Out and About
New England’s Shopping Charm
Shopping in Boston and Cambridge is an event in itself, and there's plenty to choose from. Let’s count the ways: the upscale boutiques of Newbury Street, Copley Place, The Shops at Prudential Center in the Back Bay; the outdoor kiosks of Faneuil Hall Marketplace and across the Charles River there's Harvard Square and Cambridge Side Galleria; farther out, the Kittery Outlets and the high-end shops of the Natick Collection. Honorable mention: Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, which with 170 stores, it is the largest collection of designer and name brand outlets in New England. With no sales tax on clothing valued under $175 and only a 6.25% sales tax on everything else. It's like there's a sale every day! Plan your Boston shopping spree and get the most of the New England’s charm into your closet.
Find What You'll Love
Perhaps Boston can be best described as a welcome contradiction: Hip alongside historic. Skyscrapers surround parks. Gourmet meets pizza. Take a walk through Boston Common. The Boston Public Garden was the first public botanical garden in the United States. If the weather is nice, make sure to take a swan boat ride. See if you can locate the George Washington statue or the Make Way for Ducklings statues. One major attraction is the Boston Red Sox, baseball team. Make sure to visit Fenway Park, the oldest baseball stadium that is still in use. Don’t worry if the Red Sox aren't in season, you will still be able to take a tour of the park. Visit Legal Sea Foods and have a bowl of delicious Clam Chowder. But when you order it, say "Clam Chowdah!”. There is so much to see and do in Boston – you only have to choose what you’ll love.
