New to Boston or simply looking for new stomping grounds? Summer is the perfect time to explore our dozens of neighborhoods, so for your shopping ease, we'll be mapping the top shops in each area over the coming weeks.
A new crop of doe-eyed students will swarm the streets of Boston next week, with the epicenter of their perch in Allston and Brighton. Are you in that scholarly group and not sure where to shop? Think the area is only good for dive bars and cheap eats? Both well-know and off-the-radar stores line the streets of these often paired-up neighborhoods—ideal for those seeking thrifty buys, all things bicycles, and goods for rural (hiking) and urban (skateboarding) sports. Here we've rounded up 10 of those spots, from the middle of Boston University to the Harvard fields by Soldiers Field Road.
