Just south of the Boston Common and towards the West end of the Financial District is the Downtown Crossing area, one of the city's main shopping areas. Here you can find stores like Macy's, Saks, and Filenes Department Store, along with various bookstores, jewelers, and street vendors.
The area once known as the "combat zone" or "red light district" is no more. However, the area can still be a little rough around the edges, so it's best to be alert when you are visiting.
