Mass street has many unique and interesting shops and eateries, but we enjoy watching people watching on a Saturday morning. There seems to always be some interesting characters wandering Mass street on Saturday morning. It can be very entertaining after a basketball game.

The main street of a major university will produce all types of people. Good places to shop and eat. Make sure you plug that meter because the parking police are out in full force.
