6 Tax Free Outlet Malls Close To Montreal

Quebec offers its residents many advantages, but it's not exactly cheap. That's why so many people in Quebec venture outside the province to do their seasonal shopping.

New Hampshire is an especially popular shopping destination. The New England state has no sales tax and, thus, attracts crowds of weekend shoppers from the neighbouring, tax-heavy states of Massachusetts and Maine. Quebeckers, too, make their way south to the "Granite State" to load up on cheap goods.

Listed below are 6 outlet malls in the sales-tax free state that are totally worth a day trip for Montrealers. All of these involve a voyage through the White Mountains National Forest and past several quaint colonial villages. The malls and outlets present the perfect opportunity to plan a New England excursion.
