Shopping in Boston

For those of you who favor urban chic, the traditional and classic or upscale funky, our shops and stores are certain to please. The quality and versatility of our imaginative boutiques, eclectic galleries and prestigious department stores are only rivaled by our distinctive shopping districts where you can browse the glass-enclosed arcades at Copley Place, Prudential Center and CambridgeSide, meander the open-air Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Legacy Place and Patriot Place and seasonal artisan pop-ups and stroll the brownstone boutiques and shops along Newbury and Charles Streets. The re-emerging Downtown Crossing is bustling with stores, restaurants, theatres, kiosks and well-regarded chain stores such as Macy’s. All are easily accessible on the traffic-free pedestrian mall along Washington, Summer and Winter Streets. 

Designer and brand name outlet shopping is within easy reach at Assembly Row in Somerville, Wrentham Village Premium Outlets , Merrimack Outlets in southern New Hampshire and the Kittery Outlets right over the border in Maine.

Another shopping gem is our wonderful Museums’ shops where you can find the perfect keepsake or gift. For the more adventurous, unique finds await you in the specialty stores, quirky gift shops and independent retailers in the more residential neighborhoods of the city.

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 here.
