After spending quite a lot of time travelling around North America, I can safely say that nothing beats the quaint area of New England. From the steaming hot summers to the freezing cold winters Boston is always a sight to behold. With Italian restaurants, sweeping parks and cosy coffee shops, the city is more a snippet of Europe than an American metropolis. If you want to explore Boston like a local, follow this guide to see how the Boston folk like to spend their time.

Where to shop
First of all, despite the tourists, the Prudential Centre is always a favourite for shopping. Located only minutes away from Newberry Street (which holds all your heart can desire), the Prudential has some nice stores inside including a big Barnes and Noble for the book lovers among us. If the Prudential is too crowded for you, just beyond the Copley Square tube station and past the public library you will find two big department stores handy for home and designer clothes shopping. Good for bargain hunters, Marshalls and Nordstrom Rack hold clothes and home accessories which stock great finds for the quality buyer.
