It's definitely worth visiting if you're in Boston. The shopping is great, they have everything from boutiques to your normal brand stores to Dolce Gabana. As for places to stop and eat, there's plenty of options too. The only downside to this area is parking. Street parking is still limited to 2hours with the meter and they actively ticket. Parking...

I currently live in Boston and I walk down Newbury street all the time and whenever friends visit, I take them to Newbury and Boylston streets as well! Newbury street is a must see when visiting Boston as it hosts a lot of stores, nail salons, cafes, restaurants, and anything you need! The stores and restaurants can be a little... More

The beautiful & elegant Newbury Street in the Back Bay is Boston's Rodeo Drive! Here you can every fashion you desire from Chanel, Prada, Dior to Victoria's Secret ….

The area is full of smaller, non-chain shops. I always go to the area to kill a few hours when we're in town. For the most part, the shops are on the lower level(s) of Victorian era/looking "row" houses and have a ton of character.

Nice evening or day walk in this trendy neighborhood. A few schick stores along. At night time lights on the trees makes a romantic appearance. Nespresso cafe next to Taj hotel, close to the gardens; passing streets in alphabetic order from Arlington up to Mass Ave.

Loved it, we went 3 times, so beautiful, richly decorated brick buildings, cobblestone walks, wrought iron fences, laterns, light strung on tree lined street. Top Notch shopping, don't miss Newbury Street!

I love the mix of stores, the historical feel and it is a safe environment. New stores just opened as we were there, Waterford Crystal was just opening it was beautiful, along with an art gallery then a walk to Starbucks and Joes American Grille it was a great day except for the cold!

A variety of independent upscale retailers of all sorts, a handful of indie bookstores, coffee/tea houses, clothing stores, designer stores, upscale 2nd hand stores, boutique dress shops, lovely outdoor/indoor small restaurants, specialty olive oil/vinegar store, and some chains: American Apparel, Nike, Forever 21, etc. Watch your step... bricks are VERY uneven. Love that pedestrians have the right of way at... More

Went to the Back Bay today after visiting Fenway Park. A bunch of expensive shops to look at but nice to see and stroll down.
