A street of terraces converted to fashionable shopping

LOVED Newbury Street....You really got the feel of a movie setting, and true Boston. It is appealing to all ages, and even if you don't want to shop, it is a MUST!!!

Newbury Street has high end shops and boutiques. We just liked walking around and doing window shopping. It's worth going for the architecture alone. Took us about 45 minutes to walk slowly from one end to the other. We started at the Boston Park end and then went down Bolyston. The Prudential centre is nearby as well as Copley Square

This street is paradise for a shopper. Lots of lovely antique stores, art galleries, and very high end shops all to help you part with your dollars. Makes for nice windowshopping.

Lot's of good high-end shops in this area, but not open very late. Check hours before heading to this area. There are also very few dining options in this section of town. Make sure to eat up before heading over.

On the Saturday that we strolled along Newbury Street, there were countless musicians entertaining the walkers including two large a capella groups, There are so many interesting boutiques and the architecture is quite beautiful. We came upon Newbury Street quite by accident and were very glad we did. It really added to our appreciation of the beauty of Boston.

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.
