Boutiques along with the new European shops like Cos, H and M and Zara mix with designer venues which starts at Chanel at Arlington St. and covers at least 8 blocks of great shopping.

I love Newbury street its such a good mix of good quality shops. There are some great kids clothes shops selling nice outfits for special occasions. Great home decor shops loved the rug shop. Lots of places to grab a coffee or a lemonade.

You can easily spend an entire day in Boston just on Newbury Street. It's a window shopper's paradise, and you will find a great variety of stores, from big chains to small boutiques. Plenty of dining options on the street as well!

Newbury Street has plenty of shops on it, but most of them are not meant for anyone who prefers to shop on a budget, or for a deal. The stores are mostly highend shops, but they are worth exploring. There are also plenty of great...More

Famous shopping street in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. There are a lot of high-end stores along this street so depending on how much you’re willing to spend, this might be more of a window-shopping destination. The atmosphere is fun and lively either way,...More

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

One end (the Common) or the other end (T station) - it doesn’t really matter.

There is but prepare for $3.75 an hour at the meters. Sunday is the best day considering free parking but take the train if possible.

Yes most appeared to be open, but I think reduced hours like 11am-5/6pm.

European Tourists in Boston? (9 Replies)
I've been noticing a ton of European tourists in Boston lately. Especially from the UK -- on the forum there are tons of posts from the UK. I also notice an influx of Europeans moving here, especially Irish... as well as many students from France, etc. I notice they all go Newbury street area, must remind them of home. Does anyone know why all of a sudden more are coming to Boston... i'm guessing the Euro has a lot to do with it.

You could do the JFK museum and Harvard on the same day. They are both on the Red Line (although you need to take a free shuttle from the subway stop to the JFK museum.). I think I would do JFK in the morning and then get on the train and go straight to Harvard Square, maybe stay thre for dinner. Pru/Top of the Hub and Newbury St. make sense together. Cheers and Boston Common (no "s") and Public Garden are close to each other. Maybe do Quincy Market same day.

We plan to be in Boston for the first time over Memorial day weekend with two 12 yo kids. Are there any special/to-see restaurants/eating-places near following sites (that would be fun to visit) ? - Museum of Science - Harvard - K1 Go-Karting on K1 Speed Boston, 40 Fordham Rd., Wilmington, MA 01887 - The New England Holocaust Memorial - Newbury street - Courtyard by Marriott Boston South Or restaurant in Boston in general that would be lots of fun to visit with 12 yo kids ?

In Harvard Square, Mr. Barley's Burgers. Know that they accept only cash and have no restrooms. All the burgers are named after different people. The Holocaust Memorial is near Quincy Market (food court) and the North End for Italian food. You could go to Regina's Pizza in the North End (not Quincy Market) or let the kids browse through the food stands and pick what they like. Newbury St. and nearby Boylston St. probably have about 75 places to eat. If it's a nice day it might be fun...More
