If a student gets accepted in a college located in Boston, MA then there are a lot of activities to do and a lot of restaurants to visit. Boston even has a lot of shopping malls that college students can enjoy. Some of these malls are Cambridge Galleria, Dedham Mall, Faneuil Hall/Downtown Boston, and Prudential Center.
Cambridge Galleria: This mall is located at Cambridge, MA and it has a lot of activities/stores to explore. From sears to Banana Republic, this is a place to visit and get your shopping done, even window shopping. There is a food court that has many fast food stands like Mc Donald’s, which I do not recommend for various reason, and Saku Japanese Food that I highly recommend because they have great chicken teriaki and sushi. Let’s talk about the stores at Galleria mall, as mention before, there is a Sears which has everything that you might be looking for such as clothes, shoes, house appliances, and much more at a great price. There is also an Old Navy, which has great tops, jeans, and dresses.
Dedham Mall: If you want a similar shopping experience as Galleria Mall in Cambridge, but want to change the location then go to Dedham Mall. It has similar stores, Sears, Old Navy, and it even has TJ Maxx. This mall is small, but it has all the necessary stores you would need to get your shopping done. There is even a DSW Warehouse located next to TJ Maxx that would get your shoe shopping needs fulfilled. Dedham Mall is closer if you live in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Hyde Park, and Roxbury of the City of Boston. As a college student, this is a great way to get to know Boston, especially if you are not from Boston.
Faneuil Hall/Downtown Boston: Downtown Boston, the place everyone goes to for eating, shopping, school, etc. Faneuil Hall is close to Downtown Boston, so both are busy areas. At the main center of Downtown Boston, there is another Tj Maxx, Marshall’s, and H&M. Popular places to go shopping, in the same street there is a DSW shoe Warehouse and Payless, which have lovely shoes at a affordable price. All malls are crowded, but Faneuil Hall/Downtown Boston are not malls, but shopping districts.
Prudential Center: Shopping at Copley Mall, the person would need to have a lot of money. The Gucci store is located at this mall and many other brand stores that are great, but really pricey. Unless you are a rich person or can afford to buy at least one item, then this is not a mall for you. Even though, the shopping experience would be disturbed by the tourist who are ALWAYS stopping every five seconds or are walking very slowly, they could even be doing both. A lot of students like to go to the food court to eat and spend some quality time with their friends.
There are many shopping malls in the City of Boston that should be explored by college students who have decided to attend college in Boston. All of these location can be accesses by using the MBTA.
