What is luxury Mall?
Boston's shopping malls may surprise you, especially if you are used to the suburban cookie-cutter experience where one mall looks much like another.
Imagine an eclectic mix of shopping and entertainment in a marketplace built almost 300 years ago in the most historic part of the city?
Or a sophisticated shopping plaza with soaring glass skylights at the foot of Boston's second-tallest skyscraper?
Or a village-like collection of top-brand outlet stores overlooking the Mystic River, just 5 minutes by subway from Downtown Boston?
Here is our guide to Boston's unique centrally-located shopping malls and plazas - plus a few special suburban versions as well.

But shopping is just the beginning of the fun you can have here.
Faneuil Marketplace's famed street performers entertain crowds every weekend and holiday, and a huge lighted Christmas tree, seasonal ice skating rink, and more restaurants, food vendors, and pubs than you can count add to why this is Boston's most entertaining mall. More about
