it's a great place to go, any season. lovely places. lovely stores. lovely people. gee, i wonder why all the celebs go there when they come to boston ?! altho some stores may have some stuck up clerks, overall, it's a great place to go. small unique boutiques and places like armani.. then there's bcbg and also gap, pacific sunwear, and american eagle. for all tastes and all sizes of the wallet. they also have great restuarants and cafes.
