“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Yep, it's a place to walk thru, shop and eat all at an expensive price. Nice to say you went thru but wouldn't do it again.

“A shopping street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

A typical street with lots of designer shops which you find in cities round the world. Didn't see what the fuss was all about.

“Architecturally historic atmosphere, shopping, eating...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Well maintained historic neighborhood with high/mid-range shopping, eating and quality gift shops. It's great fun to discover the many hidden 'Boston-centric' shops. I can never get enough of the architecturally historic atmosphere. Strongly recommend a visit if you've never been.

“Very nice street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Good for a walk, to see or buy nice brands. There are also so nice places for a lunch or snack, like the Ben & Jerry's for an ice cream. Even if you are not planning to buy expensive stuff, you may find some few affordable options there, like H&M store at 100 Newbury St.

“A Great Place to Browse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you have time after touring all the historical sites in Boston browse down Newbury Street. Along shops like Guess, Burberry, Anthropology and Kiehl's there are some nice boutique stores and unique gift shops. Be sure to check out the Boston Olive Oil Company and the Alex and Ani store. There are also great places to dine!
