Copley is kind of the heart of what makes Boston special. History, modern, commercial, art, it's all wrapped around the square. You don't have to make a special trip here. Your touring will at some point bring you right by it. It was wet and...More

As your walking down Boylston, Copley Square is a lovely mix of new and old. Getting to see the reflexion of the old buildings in the glass/mirror skyscrapper is impressive. A most pleasant square to shoot a few photos and enjoy the views.

Head over to Copley Place which has the best shopping in Boston for mostly upscale, designer fashions. Walk through the Mall over to the Prudential shopping are for more mainstream shopping, bookstores and various restaurants .

Regardless of what the weather outside is like, the Copley Square Mall, and surrounding Copley Square area is worth exploring. The building architecture in this area is stunning, and the shopping mall offers an array of dining and shopping options.

Worth the trip to see the library and trinity church. Everything us all right there. Given I would highly recommend just going to see these two sites - it’s worth walking around the square.

Snazzy mall... wide variety of shopping for all budgets. The same applies for eating options. The hotel has a connecting bridge, which is easy access. Thankfully I traveled for business, so I had to limit my shopping :)
