This is my second time visiting Boston, and Newbury Street is again a must see. Most people come here for the shopping, but I enjoy just admiring the architecture. There is a certain charm to the building design. Although they all look quite similar, there is something beautiful and historic about them.

We enjoyed shopping and walking along Newbury Street. There were a lot of people out on a weekend so it was a bit crowded. If you love shopping and some high end stores, this is great for you. We mainly browsed and enjoyed the walk.

Great street for shopping. Every kind of shopping available from names you'll recognize to little trendy boutiques. Also there are many restaurants along the way to sit have a drink and rest.

I love Newbury Street. Each time I am in Boston I make the trip up. The street is stunning. Beautiful trees and architecture. On the street you will find neat bookshops, bakeries, restaurants and of course retail shops.

Newbury Street is really worth a visit, even if it's just to window shop. Many of the designers shops are there, but also some of the more general brands. Great restaurants and cafes for people watching.

Newbury Street this is a wonderful way to spend time in Boston. Its close to Copley Square so very easy to get to. The shops are in beautiful old buildings -very charming. The stores are a wonderful variety from Coture to affordable Botique. Something for everyone! Take your time and cover both sides of the street. Along the way there... More

A very pretty street in the Back Bay area that is filled with shops of all kinds from the higher end fashion to every day purchase needs. Has a bit of everything.

A definite must visit when in Boston. There are so many shops and eateries here. The sidewalks can seem small with the crush of tourists.
