This really is a must visit square. There are water fountains, Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library combined with the modern high rises that reflect the architecture of the churches and surrounding buildings - it all makes for some spectacular sunset photo opportunities

Arrived on business at the Weston next to Copley square and was very pleased how gorgeous the square is. The array of people and cultures was very attractive and the assortment of vendors was peasant. Nice to see farmers doing lots of business in a downtown setting.

The Copley Square area feels as if it is anchored by the Westin, the Marriott and the Prudential Center. In between all of them is a vast array of shopping choices ( even a Tesla "dealership" ) as well as numerous restaurants. Most of this is all indoors, so if you get a rainy day on your trip, this is... More

We ended up in this area by accident but what a great area. My girlfriend got some shopping out of the way. The area is quite modern. It has the usual suspects of stores but has a really good atmosphere so we stayed and ate here as well. If you want to see all aspects of Boston this is a... More

Copley Square surround by the modern and tall building around. it kinda made the square look the a small green field in this busy area. But yet, besides shops and some cool restaurants. There are couple quite famous tourist locations around. such as Trinity Church, Old South Church, Boston Public Library also located here. It's quite nice for a walk.

The best part - IT HAS A TESLA SHOP. Other than that all the typical mall brands. The mall is clean and well laid out. But a bit small and gives a crowded feel easily.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
