Is old stuff really that interesting? Apparently so. From stand-alone shops to dealer co-ops, Massachusetts is home to hundreds of antiquing opportunities. Rte. 7 in the Berkshires is antique alley with shops from Great Barrington to Williamstown. Rte. 133 through Essex, Ipswich and Rowley has dozens of stops along the way to find antiques and collectibles. And don't miss out on the co-op opportunities in New Bedford, Malden and Lawrence. Everything old is new again in Massachusetts.
We added up the total number of stores in Massachusetts, and we're pretty sure it's over a billion. Boston's Back Bay is headlined by two malls in the heart of the city: the upscale Copley Place and the always-bustling Prudential Center . Just across the Charles River is the CambridgeSide Galleria , with three floors, over 100 stores, and moorings for those that like to travel to the mall by boat. The Square One Mall in Saugus has almost a million square feet of retail space, Legacy Place in Dedham has an exceptional line up of restaurants plus the Showcase Cinema de Lux that lives up to its name, and the Natick Mall has more stores than any other mall in New England. Yup, that's definitely at least a billion stores.
NOTABLE AREAS/SHOPPING DISTRICTS
Who says you can't sightsee with a couple of shopping bags in your hands? In Boston, you can see nearly the entire city just jumping from store to store: from the tree-lined sidewalks of Newbury Street to the lively Downtown Crossing, and finally through the historical center of Boston at Faneuil Hall Marketplace . Mashpee Commons is styled after an old New England town center, but offers a modern open-air shopping experience. In central Massachusetts, the Brimfield Antique Show brings thousands of dealers, and hundreds of thousands of shoppers, to this picturesque community. And while Harvard Square in Cambridge has its fair share of interesting shops, nothing is more curious than the Curious George Store , the only one of its kind in the world.
Everyone needs an emotional outlet. And for some people, that means shopping at a actual outlet. Wrentham Village Premium Outlets is the Taj Mahal of New England outlet malls, with over 600,000 square feet of retail space. When you're out in the Berkshires but just can't handle one more beautiful vista, Lee Premium Outlets brings you back to civilization in style. The Northeast Knitting Mills Factory Outlet in Fall River offers huge discounts on sweaters and other knitted wear for those blustery winter months. If you really like smelling things (and who doesn't?), Yankee Candle Village in South Deerfield lets you sample over 200 different scented candles. And by sample, we mean smell. Please do not eat the candles.
Can you really shop til you drop? Apparently in Massachusetts you can.
