10th Birthday Giveaway: Simon Malls!

10th Birthday Giveaway: Simon Malls!

Man, malls have come a long way! When I was a kid, my sisters and I hung out at a mall whose anchors were a gloomy arcade and a low-budget department store (and everything in between was pretty forgettable!). Now we’ve got access to malls where the locations are bright, pretty, and loaded with great retail options, whether you’re back to school shopping or updating your own closet.

It occurs to me that there have been two other mall evolution turning points since my days burning quarters on Pac-Man at the aforementioned mall of my youth. First, the food! While yes, you can still go grab a quick bite at a food court, if you want to sit down for a nicer meal it’s now easy to do that. Personally, I’ve had multiple tasty outings at the Burlington Mall’s Besito Mexican, Blue Stove, and Legal Sea Foods -- whether I’m meeting someone for a meal or am also planning on shopping. And the second turning point is that many malls now offer periodic family-friendly programming (as well as ladies’ night out type events). Serious wins all around!

Now, how cool this this? In honor of the Boston Mamas 10th Birthday Celebration, Simon Malls is gifting one lucky winner with a $250 gift card (good for use at any Simon property)! WOO HOO! To enter to win, opt in to any or all of the four entry options in the Rafflecopter widget below – each option gives you an additional entry! Two of the options will connect you with the fine Instagram feeds of Simon Malls properties, Burlington Mall and South Shore Plaza. Please note that winners for this giveaway series must reside in the United States and when you enter to win, you will receive periodic (totally cool, not spammy!) updates from Boston Mamas + our giveaway partners. Good luck!
