From vintage boutiques and outlet malls to upscale department stores, Boston has it all and the great news is there’s no sales tax on clothing under £115. The streets of Back Bay are laid out in an alphabetical grid so they’re easy to navigate. Head for the popular Newbury Street, where the designer names are at one end, followed by High Street stores and then one-off boutiques and vintage labels at the other. Wander the boutiques and bookstores along Charles Street in Beacon Hill – famed for its brownstone townhouses and gas lamps – or head to Copley Place for the likes of Tiffany & Co and Jimmy Choo, before taking the walkway through to the Prudential Center Mall, where you’ll find Sephora and Kate Spade. The Downtown Crossing shopping district is were you’ll find Macy’s, while the waterfront Faneuil Hall and Quincy Marketplace overflows with food stalls, souvenirs and street entertainers. At this time of the year, it also plays host to the largest Christmas tree in the state and BLINK! a 350,000 LED light display illuminating the marketplace accompanied by live music.
