Weekend in Boston

For the dedicated shopper - every brand you can think of has a store on this street along with some nice coffee shops. Nice use of trees to 'soften' the look of the street too.

Had dinner and strolled up and down on a Friday night. Lots of students and twenty somethings. Ate a a Bistro which was good but didn't quite have their act together. No chimichurri with beef as promised and missing some garlic in shrimp scampi, but then it was a 'french scampi' . The staff were very nice and some spoke... More

What a great place to stroll, shop, eat, stop for drinks or even a coffee. We stayed much longer than we thought we would. Just a great place to stroll and hang out. If I lived here I would come here often. So much in the areas around here too! (i.e Boston Public)

This is a beautiful street lined with expensive boutique type shops and restaurants/cafes. It's where you may bump into a celebrity who tend to frequent the shops on this street.

We took a Boston tour and Newbury Street was one of our stops. It was explained to us as the Rodeo Drive of Boston. Since I have actually been to Rodeo Drive a couple of times, I can't really say that it was as impressive as Rodeo Drive. However, there were lots of shops and several people walking around shopping.... More

Newbury is a fantastic shopping street. So many cute and quaint shops intermixed with high end designer stores. There is something for everyone depending on the size of their pocket book. For me, I was all eye no buy, and the window shopping was super satisfying. We ate at a great restaurant for lunch. We walked all the way from... More

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.
