Logo   Shopping in Boston, Massachusetts
Boston is a great city for shopping. Here are the prime shopping districts:



Boston's Back Bay is the city's epicenter of shopping, with several intense concentrations of upscale outlets, fashion boutiques and all-around good places to buy:

Copley Place

Just off Copley Square is the vast Copley Place complex, a posh shopping, dining, lodging, and entertainment community. There's even an elevated, glass-enclosed pedestrian walkway to the neighboring...

Prudential Center

This large Back Bay hotel, office and retail complex has more than 75 shops, boutiques and restaurants right next to the Hynes Convention Center. More...

Newbury Street

Boston's famous street of boutiques, galleries, and cafés runs from fashion to funk. More...

Downtown Crossing

Once the epicenter of Boston shopping, this downtown pedestrian shopping district on Washington Street (MBTA subway Red Line or Orange Line to Downtown Crossing) is still important because of Macy's. More...

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Faneuil Hall Marketplace is a complex of historic buildings including Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, flanked by the North and South Markets on either side. It's no Copley Place, but lots of people think it's lots more fun. More...

Haymarket Square

Every Friday and Saturday, Haymarket Square, next to Faneuil Hall Marketplace, fills with fruit-and-vegetable vendors in Boston's weekly open-air produce market.
