We went here so my wife could pick up some yarn. The proprieter was a very wonderful black lady with a great accent. She was knowledgeable and helpful and very friendly. I do not know whether she was the owner or not. However, she certainly should be since she is so knowledgeable. Stop in a buy some yarn if you... More

Great street to walk in Boston Lots of fine stores, but bring your wallet. Some are quite expensive Plenty of places to eat or stop for a cup of coffee or whatever Must see to me in Boston.

As a Dallas native, I find that most cities have the same shopping. Newbury Street surprised me. There were lots of shops I've only known to be in England, and certainly plenty of the usual stores you find on high-shopping streets. Overall, the shopping and food was great!

Wonderful dining and shopping area, although a bit touristy. Quaint shops and lots of outdoor dining, wonderful to dine outside and people watch.

We had a few hours to kill, so we headed over to Newbury street, having heard about its eclectic assortment of shops. The shops themselves were great and the salespeople are really helpful. We had the most fun just looking around, though, and watching people interact with the displays. Some of the prices are a little high (it's Boston, after... More

This is my favorite street in Boston for shopping. There is nothing like walking down Newbury on a sunny day and pick an outdoor restaurant for lunch. You can people watch, window shop the Boutiques, get your hair done, its all great all the time!

This is a wonderful quaint area of boutiques and eateries. It is an easy walk from from Boston Commons. We had the great pleasure of staying at the Newbury Guest House, which was delightful. Also nearby in Copley Square with the Convention Ctr, and the Prudential Building which houses an incredible shopping mall.

This is the beautiful street where along with both high end and department store shopping is tree lined with some of the greatest archeological sites including a Gothic Church designed with historical value.

So after a fewer hours at the Boston Museum of Art, I strolled through Fenway Park to spend the afternoon exploring Newbury street galleries Andy shops. The street is lined with boutiques, restaurants and galleries all the way to Boston Common which kept me happily occupied for hours. I urge any visitor to take advantage of the opportunity to stroll... 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.
