One end is high end shopping and the other end is mid tier boutique shops. The restirants that pepper the street are fabulous. Really if you want good eats this is the place. If you like to go into shops to look at a mediocre selection at outrageous prices this is for you as well.

There is a nice mix of shops here along with bars and restaurants. It's nice to take a stroll along and leads to the park/common. I would recommend Newbury Comics as a must visit. There is a range of graphic tops and fashion brands through to cool items and collectables. We also bumped into Johnny Cupcakes in the Johnny Cupcakes... More

There is great shopping, Less expensive stores are on the Mass Ave end. Good food, snacks, coffee, people watching. Weekends on sunny days the streets tend to get crowded. Back Bay location is central to Malls, Neighborhoods. Take the parking meters very seriously. The meter maids do!!

Shopping streets like this have long since lost their allure for me. This one is like most others, with a wide array of expensive shops, shi-shi restaurants and no room to walk. Unless you are here for some retail therapy, don't go out of your way to visit.

A stroll down Newbury Street seems to be a must-do on a trip to Boston. A long street, with shops on both sides - quite a few familiar names but also a great option of smaller stores in the basement spaces, selling everything from hipster clothes to jewellery. Couple of good stand-outs too, including the Converse store at the Boylston... More

I'll start by saying that I enjoy shopping and the shops are cute, but they can get busy. There are some cute shops (there's a fairy-themed place,) there are designer boutiques, and there are chain stores (like a 4-level Forever 21 and a compact CVS.) There are multiple specialty cupcake bakeries, which speaks volumes about the street's trendiness.The street is... More

It's definitely worth visiting if you're in Boston. The shopping is great, they have everything from boutiques to your normal brand stores to Dolce Gabana. As for places to stop and eat, there's plenty of options too. The only downside to this area is parking. Street parking is still limited to 2hours with the meter and they actively ticket. Parking...

I currently live in Boston and I walk down Newbury street all the time and whenever friends visit, I take them to Newbury and Boylston streets as well! Newbury street is a must see when visiting Boston as it hosts a lot of stores, nail salons, cafes, restaurants, and anything you need! The stores and restaurants can be a little... More
