Newbury Street is the fashionable shopping street in Back Bay, Boston. Situated alongside luxurious condominiums and brownstone apartments, it is perfect for strolling, eating or just browsing. On a warm day the trees and flowers are in full bloom.

Not a lot going on in February so we found this area boring and dulldrum for such a long cold walk. Would not be too excited to return any time soon.

This is the street to go if you high fashion (read expensive) and a makeover. Empty your wallet and go high class for a day.

The Newbury St. is one of the best walks you can have while in Boston. It has the class, it has the good vibes and the stores, each surpassing the one you just left behind. There is a beauty in the charm of this place. You will find the architecture of this place enticing, the buzz in the air energizing... More

Newbury street has everything! Architecture, a great variety of retail outlets, plenty of ethnic food restaurants-Chinese, Greek, Indian, Italian, Mexican, coffee places, art galleries and more. You will probably need more than a couple of hours to visit and walk from the Boston Common to Massachusetts Avenue. Make sure you pay a visit to little and unassuming retail stores...you might...

One of my favourite streets in the world. From the Common the street is lined by elegant shops and later they give way to restaurants and then to lovely brownstone residential buildings with stoops.

We really like to stroll Newbury street when visiting Boston. My wife has a favorite jewelry store with great choices of antique jewelry. I like the Patagonia store and the neat little independent coffee shops. Overall a great place to hang out.

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.
