You’re on vacation, and you deserve to indulge in a little retail therapy in the Athens of America.
Just because you won’t be browsing for ancient Greek urns doesn’t mean there isn’t tons of places to give your wallet a workout in Boston. For starters, check out Quincy Market. Located near Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Quincy Market was constructed during the 1800s and named after former mayor Josiah Quincy. Although this piece of the city is indeed historic, it’s full of contemporary shops and restaurants as well. If you’re renting a car in Boston, simply stash your shopping finds in the trunk and head off to check out more sites. Nearby you’ll find the Boston Public Garden, where you can stretch out on grassy knolls or snap pictures of vivacious tulips. Not interested in stunning flora and fauna? Head to the Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum for a glimpse into the city’s past, or practice making fishy faces at the New England Aquarium.
