The Shops at Prudential Center and the Copley Place are two of Boston's most affluent shopping venues. Both are located in the heart of Copley Square, and combine unique boutiques, higher-end mall favorites, and scrumptious eateries--irresistible enough for guests to stay all day. The Shops at Prudential are located on the first few floors of, you guessed it, The Prudential Center--Boston's second tallest building. The atmosphere is upscale, with tall ceilings, large picture windows, and a clean, well-maintained space. Here, guests enjoy such stores as Lacoste, Free People, Ann Taylor, Express, Papyrus, 344, Saks Fifth Ave., Pandora, and Gucci. A long day of browsing and buying will surely trigger a hungry shopper. There are countless options; P.F. Chang's is a great choice for Chinese, and Legal Seafood proves to be some of the best seafood in Boston. Looking for a new dining experience? Take the elevator all the way up to the Top of the Hub restaurant for gourmet cuisine and an unbelievable view of the city. The Copley Place mall rivals the Prudential shops in class and sophistication. Shoppers can choose from such stores as The Art of Shaving, Victoria's Secret, J. Crew, Benetton for Men, Armani Exchange, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., Jimmy Choo, and Caché. The stores are spread out over multiple floors, with office buildings and condominiums located above. In the center, an exquisite fountain highlights the thought and design that went into building this mall. All of the railings are made of shiny brass, and the store frames are highlighted by beautiful wooden framing.
Whether you are looking for a new designer purse or a delicious lunch, a new pair of expensive shoes or a plain T-shirt, Copley and Prudential cater to your desires. Both are tailored with perfection to fit the needs of the seasoned shopper.
