Lifestyle and Shopping in Boston

►Buy the Expat Arrivals Guide to Boston in PDF format.


Boston’s warm and friendly atmosphere will make expats relocating here feel right at home, and with some great attractions and activities to enjoy, people of all persuasions will find something to suit their tastes. There is lots to do in Boston - shopping, exciting nightlife and a fabulous variety of restaurants, Boston also features good entertainment venues, world-class sports facilities and luxurious spas.

Expats will have a great time perusing Boston’s shopping districts where boutiques, department stores, malls and outlets overflow with jewellery, clothing, books and local goods. Head to Faneuil Hall Marketplace where more than 100 of Boston’s finest shops can be found, while those who can afford to really splash out should head to Newbury Street where designer names like Cartier and Armani line the street and Beacon Hill is the place to go for antique buys.

Not known for its pumping nightlife, Bostonians prefer a more relaxing vibe during the evenings. Visit the original ‘Cheers’ bar to enjoy a pint, or hit the trendy Museum of Fine Art to sip on a glass of wine. For a more relaxing night head down to the local pool hall or bowling alley to have a quick drink with your friends.
