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.
