Newbury Street was filled with pedestrians walking the different shops. It was fun of activity and filled with many quant and many high end stores. It was great to be amongst the hussle and bussle of the city. Be warned though, it will be very touristy. So if you are not in the mood for that, go some other place.

Newbury Street is very fun and a great family and shopping experience. There has even been talk of making the street pedestrian-only!

We stayed at The Marriott Copley Place and then walked to Newbury Street. We had a lovely lunch outside at a cafe and then walked to the boutiques. One in particular was Alexis Bittar jewelry and the manager couldn't have been any nicer. I would highly recommend this area while in Boston, another being the Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall..lots of...

Really nice and upscale neighborhood. All kids of stores (shake shack, clothing boutiques, restaurants, etc.). Located in Back Bay so can spedn an afternoon roaming arounf this area, Boyleston, Mass Ave and the brownstones, Copley Square, and waterfront. Not great for kids but great for couples. Also close to Copley all for traditional mall shopping (great mall too).

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.
