After long awaiting the opening of Eataly Boston, we got to go! We ordered the special of the day which was striped bass. It was expertly prepared and absolutely delicious. The restaurant is in the midst of the market. The atmosphere is exciting!

The Prudential Mall has been undergoing renovation for about 6 months. Now, all the new tenants have not fully opened there are enough new stores to go for a fun shopping experience. If you are a foodie, a must try is Eataly which has replaced the old food court. It is very similar to the one at the Flatiron in... More

One of the few malls in Boston, the Prudential Center boasts a flagship UnderArmer store and a good size Lord and Taylor as well as some nice places for a bite to eat once you've done your shopping.

A mixed feelings, as eataly does. Yo can go simple with a pasta, pizza or expresso o go full luxury with seafood and prosecco. Beautiful design and superior service. Full of details and superior cured ribeeye, cold cuts and cheeses. Try the burrada or one of the breads. Welcome the by supporting the enormous investment in a newly renovated pridential... More

I don't think there's anything you can't find here. It is miles and miles of shopping and eating. The shops are lovely but I do wish there were facilities and they were better marked. Also, I find it odd that there are not any water bottle filling stations. If there are, I didn't see any. Maybe it's so that the... More

Excellent trip to this 50th floor viewpoint. $18 dollars for an adult ticket. Panoramic views , although when we visited a small area was closed due to a private function, and a lot of interesting hands on exhibits relating to the city , history and culture. Fun quizzes and press button tests were ideal for children and adults. We were... More

The Center is located in the lower levels of the big Prudential Tower in Downtown Boston. The tower and center are connected to the Sheraton Hotel that can be accessed directly from the shopping area.There are a lot of shops, mostly clothing and also a number of restaurants. Nothing very special, the usual brands are available and food places are... 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.
