Good place to start bus tours

Centrally located. Good shopping around. Like the mix of traditional and modern architecture. The city tour buses all have a stop here.

No tourist should miss the opportunity to walk through Trinity Church smack dab in Copley Square. It must be included on formal tours but one can go there on one's own. It's gorgeous and will fill you with wonder and awe!

We've been parishioners at Trinity for many years and it's been a real privilege to worship at Trinity. It's a church that welcomes all from whatever faith, race, sexual preference- the clergy is excited to see everyone (not just at Christmas or Easter, either). The sermons are always thought provoking and inspiring, the architecture and design is breathtaking, and the... More

An historic architectural building. Go when music is playing or choirs are singing. Beautiful. In other words, go for a concert or religious service. Not only will you avoid the fees but also enjoy the ambiance.

A very well maintained church with amazing stained glass windows and a sense of serenity throughout. There is good information available, staff are friendly and the building is a fine example of Boston architecture. There is a modest admission charge, which is well worth it.

Large portions cannot be seen. It is a nice building but not amazing. It is also pricey and the explanatory material are not that great. Friendly staff.

Kneeling down in this church is a pleasure. Every seat has its own pillow with a beautiful embroidery.

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.
