It is a very nice area, with several things to do. The library is very nice, great murals, nice little garden, and the church is a nice breath of history. All around it tons of choices for eating, and nice stores nearby

Plenty of good shopping and restaurants around this area. Not far to walk from here to other exclusive shopping streets and also Boston Library.

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

Honestly I would try to stay close to the city or close to a T station. Unless you have a car, Chelsea, Woburn & Peabody are hard to get to and you will waste too much time travelling. I think your best bet is to go for... More
