There's always great shopping at The Pru which we Bostonians refer the center as, a little bit of everything within a short walking distance.

If you are looking for downtown shopping in Boston, this is the place, as the Prudential Center not only has its own collection of incredible shops, it is a hub connecting the shops of Copley Place with a skywalk , and then you can continue through the Pru onto the shops of Boylston Street and then Newbury street.

Large variety of stores and shops. Very clean and modern. A fun place to visit and look around and come to shop. Also some nice places to grab a quick bite to eat or sit down at a restaurant.

it is very good mall. I keep going there when I visit Boston. I can have a walk, buy some stuff.. recently when I visited, the food court was closed, I am not sure why. and I don't know if it is open again or not. in general, the mall is neat.

Adjacent and inside are some of the best eateries (PF Chang, Cheesecake Factory, Eataly) in the Back Bay and easy access to the 52nd floor and dining or drinks at The Top of the Hub. Based on the crowds and the name brand stores , this place seems to be doing very well.

You have to stop for dinner at the Top of the HUB in the Prudential Center. The view of the city at night in spectacular! Besides that, the food is very good also.

Always enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Prudential Centre. Good variety of shops. The new food hall was opened the day I was leaving-so looking forward to trying it out next time in 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.
