As well as some amazing shops on Newbury Street, the Prudential Centre is a good place to shop. Either eat at Eatalian or buy the pasta etc to cook at home - really good

The views from the observation deck were great! Well worth the $20 entrance fee. There are also exhibits on immigration to Boston and a small Theater that plays short films, plus some other interactive games for the kids.

Easy to access by T line, this nice shopping mall encompasses a large Barnes and Noble, full of books and movies. Perfect to pick your next enticing novel. Regular brands can also be found and the parking fee is ok.

Well I went when it was raining and it was fine. We in fact enjoyed the indoor attraction as there were audio guides and we could still see all the sites.
