We walked the length of this rather impressive street twice during our recent holiday in Boston. One daughter had to visit and then revisit Newbury Comics at one end while the other did likewise in respect of Victoria's Secrets at the other. There were also a number of shops in between that they and their mother had to visit. I... More

Bring your walking shoes and take a trip to Newbury Street. Tons of shops, lots to see. Don't visit Boston without a stroll down Newbury.

If you have done the freedom trail and you are ready to window shop til you drop - don't recommend really shopping til you drop unless your pockets are deep- this is your place. There are many charming sidewalk cafés along the way to stop and quench your thirst or stop, eat and people watch - the most fun -... More

Is this for you? Well, do you like shops, restaurants, galleries, window shopping and walk around streets filled with people and lovely architecture? If your answer is yes, then this might be your place.... It surely is mine!!! Putting the shops aside I just cannot escape this feeling of attraction of the facades of all the houses all along the...

Not only is the architecture typically Bostonian but also the really good Mix of terraces, shops, art galleries, and so on... You easily can wonder around here for hours and hours and spend lunch or dinner as well. In contrary of the standard shopping squares or standard malls, this is a super nice atmosphere to spend your day!

Beautiful historic street with great shopping, cafes, restaurants, galleries and day spas. You can spend an afternoon going up one-side and down the other.

This is the place where Bostonian faux hipsters can be readily seen, but actually it's for everyone! Regardless of genders, races, ages - the culture that the surrounding area provides is amusing! Many different stores, shops, and cafes will entertain you. I miss a day jaunt to Newbury Street. But stores on Newbury street are usually pricier than indoor malls.... More
