About BostonHi there,
I will spend 3 days in Boston (hotel is in the Downtown area) at the beginning of November. Other than the highlighted visiting places, I want to shop in an outlet such as Wrentham Village Premium Outlet or South Shore Plaza. Is it worthy to shop there? Any alternatives? Public transportation is possible and how?
Thanks in advance

1Wrentham Village is very good
dont forget LLBEAN.COM / RETAIL STORES
Google the above stores for transport options.

2Each has a webpage, which will give you directions.
Like this one for Wrentham.
Public transit to outlet malls is not common.

renting a car is the best way to go
If you can rent a car do it over 2 days as in :
mid-day to mid-day. as the above malls stay open until 9pm
before you leave downtown Boston
checkout "Copley Place" MALL
and the "Prudential Center" MALL
and have look on Newbury st
both malls are next door to each other and located in the "Back Bay" area
Where is your hotel located ? ....Whats the street its on ?
In your own time, Please give us an update ?

6Rent the car downtown for that special trip and combine that with some other site like Gloucester or Plymouth. The fees they tack on at Logan are incredible.

7There's a bus to Wrentham Mall. Gray Line or Boston Common Coach. See the mall website.
Worthwhile? Only something you can decide. For me, a discount on ridiculously expensive is still expensive. But there are a couple of brands that I do like at Wrentham and am willing to pay for.
South Shore is a mall like many others round Boston and the U.S.
IMO better bargains are to be had at Marshall's and TJ Maxx, located all over, including Downtown Crossing.

14The Mall is about a mile down the road from the Marriott, so you could even walk there. If you buy a load of merchandise you can take a taxi back to your hotel for a few dollars. Perhaps the hotel shuttle will even take you there.
For quick snacks, there is a food court upstairs. My favorite place is India Gourmet.
Don't bother with the outlets. The cost of transportation and the length of the trip will cancel any potential savings.
added: you didn't say the Marriott, but it's the first Burlington hotel that comes to mind. If you're staying anywhere on the Middlesex Turnpike, you'll be even closer.
