My wife loved walking up and down Newbury Street to shop. Cool row houses turned into shops and places to eat and drink

Had good sushi for lunch while taking a break from doing ancestry research at the New England Historic Genealogical Society just a half block away. Popular area with all age groups.

I really enjoyed strolling along here and browsing through the various small shops or just stopping for a coffee or brunch. Especially good for a wind-down after walking through the Common or around the Freedom Trail. Make sure you visit the Wired Dog cafe and Emack & Bolio's nearby!

This street is always live! It has both upscale brands (like Marc Jacobs, Rag&Bone, etc.) and high street brands (like Zara, H&M). And also lots of great small cafes where you can grab a coffee and a small pastry or lunch and catch up with friends. Even if you go there by yourself, there is no way you won't run... More

Lots of designer and boutique stores along Newbury. Definitely a nice street to stroll, window shop, stop for coffee, etc. If you're not a shopper, then you can probably skip coming here, though it is a very nice setting.

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.
