Where to Shop around The Westin Boston Waterfront

Boston has been at the center of American history, education and culture since the 1600s. The city has something for everyone, whether your interest is historic monuments, vibrant cultural events, or extreme seasonal beauty.

4 S Market St, Boston, MA 02109, USA
Sure, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market make up the most touristy part of Boston, complete with street performers, a light show, and the obligatory Yankee Candle store and Cheers restaurant; we nonetheless defy you to stay away. This part of the Boston waterfront has thrived on commerce since colonial times: Faneuil Hall was crowded with merchant’s shops as early as 1743, and the larger Quincy Market was added in 1824 to provide more space (it also was the site of speeches by Samuel Adams and other early patriot leaders). If you’re looking for a Red Sox hat or a “Boston Strong” T-shirt, you’ll find it here.
Charles St, Boston, MA, USA
Starting at the northeast corner of the Public Garden, and stretching to the end of Beacon Hill, Charles St. shopping offers a more boutiquey experience than its better known Newbury St. cousin. The feel is very European, with a mix of small specialty shops, unique restaurants and yummy desert cafes. Make sure to venture off the main drag, and you’ll be rewarded with one of a kind finds you won’t find elsewhere.
