2 things that kind of stink when you’re heading to the mall: parking and parking. I realize I just listed the same thing twice but that’s how bad I hate parking at the mall. I’m one of those people that will drop my family off at the door then go park where the spots are more plentiful so I don’t have to fight other cars or stalk patrons as they walk sloooowwwwwllllyyy back to their car. As a result I usually miss three quarters of our mall trip.

My hatred of mall parking led me to do a little research: what mall in Massachusetts has the worst parking problem? I figured this out by finding the 12 largest malls in Massachusetts by square footage. I then went to Parkopedia to find out how many available parking spaces each of those twelve malls have. I then divided the square footage by the total spots to determine the mall’s square footage per parking spot. The higher the number, the more no bueno.

Now that you’ve seen my methodology, let’s get to the findings! The 12 Largest Malls In Massachusetts Ranked By How Bad the Parking Is (we’ll go best to worst):

  • Emerald Square Mall

    North Attleboro
    Square Footage: 1,022,295
    Parking Spaces: ??? (Parkopedia didn’t know)
    Square Footage Per Parking Space:

    This is the only mystery on the list. If I discover the number of parking spots I will update the list.

  • Northshore Mall

    Peabody
    Square Footage: 1,385,195
    Parking Spaces: 8,210
    Square Footage Per Parking Space: 169

    Congrats Northshore Mall! Of the 12 largest malls in Massachusetts, you have the BEST parking!

  • Copley Place

    Boston
    Square Footage: 1,259,063
    Parking Spaces: 830 (underground)

    We have to cut Copley Place (and CambridgeSide for that matter) some slack! They’re right in Boston and had to stick that parking underground. With all that in mind, I’m sorry Copley Plaza but of the 12 largest malls in Massachusetts you have THE WORST parking. But we still love you. <3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZAKw1U9tEU
