I don't know how this didn't come up as a top 10 site when Googling top places in Boston, but this should be right up there with the rest of them. Whether you want to shop, eat, grab a drink, people watch or just walk, this is the place to be. We were on our way to the Top of... More

A great street for shopping and dining. You can find a little for everyone. Big brands, small independent stores, expensive, cheap, man, women, kids. It's all there!

This is a great place to shop, people watch, and to eat lunch or dinner. Especially nice in the spring w the trees in bloom. Restoration Hardware has an impressive multi floor store that is worth a visit. Lots of classy name brand stores, including Ralph Lauren. Ask for Ivy in the women's section to get attentive and expert service.... More

If you are visiting Boston, makes sure you walk the length of Newbury Street. There are many cool shops and fun restaurants. Patagonia and The North Face have stores on Newbury Street. Boston is full of collage students, and they add an air of excitement to the area.

Second time here and still love it! The shopping, restaurants, cafes, people watching, architecture of the buildings... Could go on and on. It is central Boston in its finest. Next time would love to stay in hotel or guesthouse here or on Boylston.

I've been to Newbury Street a few times now and I have loved it every single time. It's right next to Boston Commons and you can get off the T at Arlington, Copley or Hynes, each near a different part of the street. There are lots of stores that you would usually see in an upscale mall like Anthropologie, Urban... More

Newbury is for Boston what 5th Ave is to New York. Lots of shopping, nice places to eat, beautiful street. I do recommend as mandatory for visitors.

The Brownstones are beautiful and the restaurants are good but this is like SOHO without the clutter. Shopping was very typical and predictable but the surroundings made it seem like this was better.
