One of those streets I have always wanted to see - also remember the Newbury Award for children's books - not sure what the connection is. Had a lovely time strolling through the shops. Nice places to eat.

There are plenty of shops and art galleries to spend an entire afternoon exploring this street. Start at one end of the street and then wander back the other side of the street. Even if you don't buy, there is plenty of window shopping and people watching to do.

Newbury street is unique in the effect it has you. Whether you are hungry, wanting to shop, or just bored, this street will satisfy your every need. Small boutiques, cafes and restaurants with live entertainment, and paint nights, are all things you will see just strolling by.

A walk down newbury is pretty much guaranteed to lift your spirits no matter the time of year. Just window shopping, meeting friends for brunch, having your hair done....For tourists, a must do.

Newbury st is famous for a good reason! It is filled with nice shops and restaurants and has some fantastic stories that enhance its charm. From celebrities that have visited to family-owned three generational sites, it keeps surprising you! Take time to read a little about it before you go! Some favorite places like "Stephanie's on Newbury" is a must!

This street could be very dangerous to those who like to shop. A great mix of shops and restaurants to get lost in.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
