Newbury is a nice street to stroll around and browse some shops (or window shop since there are some pricey stores). There are a number of restaurants and cute cafes to try. What is so unique about Newbury is that several of the stores are in brownstone buildings, which is very iconic of New England and adds to the charm.... More

As per other reviews, of you want to shop come here. My favourite has to be the comic shop at the further end (away from the Common).

Newbury Street ends, or starts, at Boston Commons. At that end are the very high end shops and the fancy Taj hotel. As you walk down Newbury street you see that is has something for everybody- shops of all ranks and styles, cafes and restaurants, historic churches. A lovely stroll through a magical part of Boston

I live locally and this is a favorite place to walk, people watch, sometimes a bit of shopping. And because this is Boston, we think it is perfectly acceptable to sit outside at a sidewalk café when it is 50 degrees and sunny.

There are shops..shops...and more shops. Up to 3 stories of shops...basement..road level and at least 2nd level..some even more. Quaint little restaurants.. All walking as parking in Boston is a nightmare...Newbury st is no different. Prudential Center is an easy walk away...park there. Enjoy!

Ambiance, a taste of old Boston meets new. Great walking and near so much else. Accessible if you are walking and by car if you are patient.

Very charming street for shopping and dining. Old brownstones and former mansions, different stores and a whole different experience than any mall, some very upscale but others more affordable, all "outdoors" (so go on a nice day) -- worth the experience if you are from out of town, and for sure you know about it if you are from Boston.
