Shopping in Boston

Shopping on Newbury Street

Shopping on Newbury Street

One of the main reasons we love Boston is the shopping — a great mix of unique finds, designer shops and trendy US stores makes it one stylish city. Here are our best picks for places to swipe your credit card.

Newbury Street
Newbury Street is loaded with tons of shops and stores, mixed with restaurants and chic cafes. The shopping strip stretches eight blocks, so you’ll also get in a bit of exercise perusing all the stores. And with so many stores, there’s really something for everyone. We loved walking the tree-lined street during the summer, but every season it has Boston’s quaintness and charm. You can find everything from Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, to trendy stores like H&M and Zara, and unique stores such as Pinkyotto for adorable dresses. Give yourself at least an afternoon, if not more, to shop around and grab a bite.

Prudential Centre
The Prudential Centre, just off of Boylston, is the spot for locals to shop during their lunch hours. And since everything is within the building, there’s no need to worry about chilly temps or any rain. Our picks to check out? Definitely the Gucci, and you can never go wrong with Club Monaco, L’Occitane and Saks Fifth Avenue. But with 75 shops, it will be easy for you to find something amazing.

Just strolling along the bustling Boylston Street and you will find designer stores and cute shops. Gucci and Tiffany & Co. are must stops, but you can also poke around the huge Apple Store (it’s ridiculously big), the Barnes & Noble (drool over the Nook while you’re there), Paper Source for chic stationery finds, and for some fresh food finds check out the Copley Farmer’s Market.
