Love a bargain? 

Wrentham Village Premium Outlets is where you can find the biggest discount shopping savings near Boston.  Located just 37 miles south of the city, this discount shopping outlet mall is the biggest in Southern New England. 

You get huge mark-downs, especially if you come during seasonal sales, but there's another bonus as well:  no Massachusetts sales tax on clothing items priced under $175.  So if you live in a nearby state such as New York or Maine where you'd normally pay high state sales tax on clothes, shopping at Wrentham Outlets will save you even more!

If you're visiting Boston and don't have a car, don't worry. There are three easy ways to get to Wrentham Outlets, located at the I-495 and Route 1A intersection about 37 miles south of Boston.

1. Easiest: Relax on a Luxury Bus from Boston

Board one of the plush tour buses that provide scheduled round-trip service to Wrentham Village Outlets, and sit back and relax - no need to worry about driving or parking. 

You'll even get a complimentary VIP coupon book for additional savings.

2. Rent a car for the day 

If you are going to Wrentham Outlets with one or more other people, renting a car for the day may be the cheapest solution, although not the easiest - you'll have to navigate Boston's crazy traffic plus find parking once you get there (the lot is huge, but sprawling).  Although in fairness, once you are out of the city, the drive down Route 95 and I-495 is relaxing, assuming you miss rush hour traffic.

Zipcar has lots of convenient pick-up locations all over the Boston area.  Bonus:  take your Zipcar key to the Wrentham Village Information Center near the Food Court to get a free VIP coupon book.

3.  Public Transportation / Taxi 

From South Station or Back Bay Station in Boston, take the Franklin LIne of the Commuter Rail (check the MBTA website for schedules) to Franklin Station, about 4 miles from Wrentham Outlets. 

Then take a taxi to the shopping center -  Foxfield Taxi (508-543-2828) services this route.

For 1 person, this option may cost just a few dollars less than the luxury tour bus and won't be as fast or convenient - but if you're not familiar with driving in and out of Boston, it's easier than renting a car.
