This area is a great place to stroll through and do a lot of window shopping. Great unique area with shops, food and salons.
Newbury Street is a must see in Boston. Not necessarily the most inexpensive area of town, but it has a great concentration of shops and restaurants to choose from. The Brownstones have the typical Boston charm you'd expect and there are a lot of little hidden gems around.
Assuming that you want to shop, Newbury really does have it all. Big consumer brands like Urban Outfitters, Patagonia, Timberland, Anthropology, Nike, and Zara. Lots of boutique shops too (mostly for women). Great smoke shop / hemp product retailer. Lots of places to eat, drink and be merry.
Brownstone type architecture with high end fashion at one end and frozen yogurt at the other. But Boylston which is one block over is also now worth a look. The cross streets go in alphabetical order. There also is a Georgetown Cupcakes from the tv show on Newbury.
The area is very nice. If you like to people watch, this is the place you want to be. A great place for shoppers or even just for a nice stroll. My boyfriend and I walked passed on our way to the Fenway mark from the North end and didn't really get a chance to stop by any stores. The... More
Newbury Street boasts a wonderful streetscape with interesting shop windows, beautiful historic churches, and lots of local color. It has the character of a shopping area like London's Kings Road. You don't have to spend money to enjoy it. This is the best of what makes big cities unique.

This street is a great way to spend the day if you like shopping. If you don't my advice is to stay away. But for those of us who do, this is a terrific stop on your trip! My husband and I shopped til we dropped here. We had a wonderful lunch on a patio (in mid-November!). There are a... More
There are a plethora of shops, restaurants, and a cute market along this street. I wasn't in town for shopping but enjoyed the walk none the less. I walked it during daylight, ran it early one morning, and walked down to Steve's Restaurant late one evening - felt relatively safe at all hours. Definitely a pretty walk in the evening.
What a great place to shop! Unbelievable! So many well known stores & a ton of others. Great places to eat, get coffee, enjoy the beauty of Boston! Very close to The Gardens! Spent time there with my son who attends boston univ. Spent quality time, just walking & talking. Very relaxed atmosphere. Did not encounter any problems & the... More
