This is an interesting area of Boston, from skateboarders trying to kill themselves on the steps, to the Boston Marathon finish line being setup (see photo attached).

I came to Boston in 1986 to go to college and immediately fell in love with the library. Copley Plaza became a favorite haunt, between the mall, library and various shops on Boylston St.

Nice church, though didnt go in due to charge (you shouldn't have to pay to pray), hare and tortoise are amusing and a great place for hop on hop off bus.

Copley Square is Boston's version of European squares. It's always busy and full of interesting sites. It is also the best place to see how historic buildings interact with skyscrapers.

All accommodations with spectacular views. First class service from coming in the door to room service to turn down. Love the concierge and valet services. We stayed here on our 2004 trip to Boston.

Copley Square always impresses me. High end stores in a very clean atmosphere. The vast majority of the stores have very friendly service and cater to anyone who walks in.

We visited Copley Square a couple of times over our 4 day stay, we returned on New Years Eve to view the Ice sculptors which were fantastic.

You'll find everything here from a Walgreen's to high-end shopping. There's even a Tesla store right in the midst of other shops. You can walk in and check out the latest cars. It's just a fun shopping experience.

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
