Christmas Season

Its the Christmas Season..

In the Boston Area, its all about the Malls... Northshore Mall, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Square One Shopping Centre, Emerald Square, Burlington Mall, South Shore Plaza, Holyoke Mall at Ingleside, Independence Mall, Natick Mall, Shopper's World and the Cape Cod Mall.

There are some New England stores that are tradditional stores customers like to visit every year: Bob's Stores, Building 19, Christmas Tree Shops, Concord's Hand Design, LL Bean, Ocean State Job Lot, Paper Store, Spags, Zeb's Country Store, Yankee Candle, and the Vermont Country Store.

Here are some of my favorite shopping areas of New England:

Cape Cod Mall

This is a fun mall to find parking spot the day after Thanksgiving. Note: The Hyannis Police department tend to write up alot of tickets to people that park illegally near the Best Buy entrance and Barnes and Noble entrance.

This is a fun mall with a lot of stores. The movie theater at the mall is one of the best in the area.

The food court at the Cape Cod Mall isn't all that desirable. There aren't that many seats and the selection isn't that great. You should check out Cooke's Seafood down the street.

Cambridge Side Galleria

This mall features some of my favorite stores: the Apple Store, Best Buy, Borders, Starbucks, and Yankee Candle. When I worked nearby, I would stop in and enjoy the food court selection. My favorite lunch spot was Panda Express' Lemon Chicken, they have since moved.

LL Bean

The Freeport, Maine store a long drive from Metro Boston, but its well worth the trip. There are plenty of outlet stores near the LL Bean store, include the LL Bean Outlet store, and you could easily finish your entire Christmas shopping in one trip.

Christmas Tree Shops

My favorite are in Orleans and Hyannis. The Orleans store is small and usually has a lot of good items that sellout in the other Christmas Tree Shops. The Hyannis store is nice because they have a large selection.

Vermont Country Store

Its been years since I visited the store in Vermont, but I still remember the store. The online version is pretty good, it really shows what makes them a unique store to visit. Check out the Candy selection!
