A variety of independent upscale retailers of all sorts, a handful of indie bookstores, coffee/tea houses, clothing stores, designer stores, upscale 2nd hand stores, boutique dress shops, lovely outdoor/indoor small restaurants, specialty olive oil/vinegar store, and some chains: American Apparel, Nike, Forever 21, etc. Watch your step... bricks are VERY uneven. Love that pedestrians have the right of way at... More

Went to the Back Bay today after visiting Fenway Park. A bunch of expensive shops to look at but nice to see and stroll down.

Just take a walk down Newbury Street for a good Boston feeling. In the midst of attactions like the Library, the Churches, the high end shopping, etc., a walk down this iconic street is just fun. Peer and go into the art galleries, the little specialty stores, the cafes..

From spends and trendy to off the wall this street in Boston is a shopper's paradise. The Anthropologie is worth a look even if you do not wear their clothes, tons of other things than clothing. Easy to get a taxi to get wherever you are going, but VERY accessible on foot. I felt incredibly safe walking around.

I recommend this street because before Boston I have been in Ny and do shopping on the 5th Av is very noisy and exhausted because of the people going to every direction. Here in Boston I found this street similar to it because it has luxury stores (Chanel, Tiffany, Valentino...) and accessible stores (H&M, Madewell, Forever 21, Aldo...) on a... More

This is a great place to stroll down for some relaxed mid to high end shopping. A very good mix of US and European brands and independent boutiques. There are also a good array of coffee shops for refreshment breaks! A must for anyone visiting Boston as it has a unique "Bostonian" feel

Refreshing to see small boutiques, very few name-brand chain shops, in beautiful buildings. I don't like to shop, but it was a pleasure to walk down this street. Glad to see small shops are still alive and thriving somewhere in the USA. Worth your time, whether you are shopping or not.

Gorgeous architecture married with upscale shops and restaurants. Always a pleasure to stroll Newbury Street. Lined with high-end shops and world renowned designer labels. Inviting windows if you enjoy window shopping and personable service if you're in the market for these products.
