We did not visit this street until the last night; however, I am glad that we did visit as it contains an interesting mix of chic restaurants and shops. My Wife also had good things to say about an Ice Cream Parlour on the street. Lots of good shops but better bargains to be had within walking distance of this... More

Newbury street is Boston's main shopping street. Lots of designer stores and cafés here. We just strolled through as Boston has so much more to see than it's shopping!

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!
