Boston: Shopping Holiday
The Athens of America
With no sales tax on any clothing item under $175, what better destination for shopaholics than Boston? Shopping is one of the main reasons people visit Boston and it isn’t hard to see why. Newbury Street has a wide range of shops that sprawl across eight blocks, offering a number of different goods to suit every taste. If you enjoy history as well as shopping, you can combine the two with a trip to Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The area has been a marketplace since 1742 and was the site for a number of speeches by Samuel Adams. Today, Faneuil Hall has an array of charming shops and an excellent food court. A relaxing bit of retail therapy can be carried out at Downtown Crossing. No cars are permitted in this area so you can casually wander around, free from any pollution or beeping car horns. If you’re busting to spend, spend, spend, take a trip to Boston to satisfy your urge.
