Top ways to experience Newbury Street and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Copley • 3 min walk
  • Prudential • 7 min walk

The are nice boutiques, some very upscale on Newbury Street. But most do not open until 11am, so do not go early!

Hundreds of stores and many restaurants and take-out eateries. Shops range from well known national chains and designers to unique local boutiques. Be prepared for crowds in good weather and on weekends - Newbury is a very lively and popular street.

This is a nice area for taking casual strolls. We came on a Sunday afternoon and there were lots of people on the street. Even though there are lots of eateries, finding a place to sit down to get something to drink and a snack was not easy.

Visit to the Newbury street is a must if visiting Boston and its surrounding areas.It is the most happening place in back bay with high end artsy shops and boutiques . Alot of eateries outdoors and indoors. I personally go there for CHANEL and H$M.

Another of Boston's distinct neighborhoods. If you're taking a girls trip, this is a must. The boutique shopping is plentiful. Saltie Girl is a great spot to rest for bloody marys and seafood.

When visiting a new city (or visiting for the first time in many years), we like to walk about and get a feel for the city. We walked Newbury Street at midday and again late afternoon. Lovely neighborhood with the old brownstones setting the feel of the street! Lots of boutiques and galleries to check out! And restaurants and cafes to enjoy!! Most are quite busy at lunchtime so make sure you have time to chill while awaiting your meal. We found a streetside cafe La Neta in the late afternoon to sit back and enjoy a brew while taking in the streetscape and the people while enjoying our Lorenza, an open-faced grilled corn tortilla topped with beans, cheese, steak, pico de gallo and guacamole. Hit the spot!!!
