Among my fondest memories of my summer spent in Boston, picking up a new book in Barnes and Noble, catching the B line to Copley and enjoying a good read in an amazing surrounding. There is a lovely fountain area just in front of the Pru that wasa favourite spot of mine to sit.

This place is a good starting venue to discover the western part of Boston city and offers all around very interresting architecture ranging from churches and the library to the new cloudscrapers If you are there and head to the commons take the southern road it will lead you directly to a nice food store.

The Square is a great place to really experience Boston at its best, with Trinity Cathedral's amazing architecture behind you and a lovely water element in front. Everyone passes through, so the scope of human experience is reflected from the lowest to highest strata. A great place to people watch and soak in real Boston.

A walk through Copley Square shows how Boston's history blends into the very modern and fast-moving city. You will see shops and boutiques and cafes all around, professionals hurrying by, designer fashions, college students (millions!), the occasional celebrity, and everywhere the history of the Revolution and our country's beginnings. It is a beautiful spot, quaint and feverish, where you can... More

We visited on a sunny day at the end of March. My family and I had never really stopped to explore that area before. As an amateur photographer, this was an excellent spot. I love pics of old and new buildings together. Beautiful church, beautiful view of the library. Lots of tourists sitting in park, throwing softballs, taking pics. Can't... More

Here, you can get some good pictures, but also check out the old church/cathedral that is there. Go inside and see it, very impressive!

This area has everything within walking distance. Fenway is close. Shops, restaurants, hotels. Cool area to walk around in any direction. We stayed at Marriott. Great.

Copley Square is easy location to connect everywhere. Easy fast food chains are there as grab-and-go foods. The view is always pretty a day and a night. Right next to it there's Newbury St andTrinity Church. You can take T in front of the library to go to Boylston St to get off to South Station and the opposite goes... More
