Get to Know Boston: Shopping and Dining

Now that you've been accepted to Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), it's time to get to know your new backyard: the city of Boston!

Looking for amazing shopping and dining opportunities? You are in luck, because Boston has lots of great options.

Here are some of our favorite places for shopping and dining:

Faneuil Hall Marketplace

One of our favorite shopping and dining destinations is just a few T stops away! Get on the Green Line at the Longwood stop (just steps outside our campus) and hop off at Government Center. Just a short walk away? Faneuil Hall Marketplace, which is filled with great places to shop (like Uniqlo and Newbury Comics) and great dining (like wagamama and Anthem Kitchen + Bar).

Prudential Center

When MCPHS students need a break from studying, they head to the Prudential Center! At the “Pru”, one of the most iconic parts of Boston's skyline, you can do a little shopping or grab a bite to eat. You can even jump aboard a Duck Boat Tour or take in 360 degree views of Boston at the Skywalk Observatory.

Fenway Neighborhood

Just a short walk from our campus, you will discover a vibrant neighborhood full of great eats and plenty of shopping. It will take you a full year to truly experience the Fenway neighborhood. Have a sit down dinner at Yard House, Bar Louie or Sweet Cheeks, or grab a burger at Tasty Burger or Wahlburgers before taking in a game at Fenway Park. Go shopping for something for your dorm, or for everyday items. For homeware, groceries, clothing and more, visit the City Target, a newer addition to the neighborhood. You will also find West Elm, Marshalls, Blick Art Materials, and more in the Fenway neighborhood.

Longwood Medical and Academic Area

Students on our Boston campus enjoy healthy and tasty meals at our cafeteria on Huntington Avenue, but our prestigious neighborhood offers lots of other great dining options. Just steps away from campus, you will find Clover, b.Good, Pret a Manger, Bertucci’s, and more. Whether you’re grabbing a quick coffee or lunch, you’ll be sure to spot friendly MCPHS lanyards at all of these local spots.
