Boston is famous for many things: the Boston Tea Party, the Red Sox, and its distinction as the cradle of America. But don't forget the incredible shopping found in this city, with thrift stores featuring clothes at a buck for a pound, high-end couture in the boutiques on Newbury Street, and everything imaginable in between. Hundreds of colorful storefronts decorating the streets of Boston dangle like gems on a necklace just waiting for shoppers to step inside.
