All reviews trinity church boston public library old south church hancock tower farmers market boston marathon stayed at the marriott ice sculptures boylston street finish line high end shops newbury st people watch great place to walk green line walk around beacon hill
Snazzy mall... wide variety of shopping for all budgets. The same applies for eating options. The hotel has a connecting bridge, which is easy access. Thankfully I traveled for business, so I had to limit my shopping :)
The mall is solely composed of high priced, 5th Ave. type stores, connecting hotels in the most confusing manner imaginable. The square itself is worth a brief look. Take public transit as parking is very expensive.
Located in front of the Fairmount Hotel, this little square is very active. During our stay in Boston this little square hosted the Mexican Day of the dead celebrated on November 1, a farmer's market every Friday, weather permitting with an amazing selection of mushrooms...More
Around the square are the beautiful Public Library (pop inside for a few minutes--it is striking), the old church whose rector presided over the funeral of Abraham Lincoln and who also wrote the carol, "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem", also nearby is the Finish Line...More
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.
Copley Square is an open area that never closes. It is more vibrant before 6pm. Shops in Pru mall close at 6-7pm on Sunday. Restaurants are open late. Library is open noon-5pm. I am not sure about trinity church or... More
Copley Square is an open area that never closes. It is more vibrant before 6pm. Shops in Pru mall close at 6-7pm on Sunday. Restaurants are open late. Library is open noon-5pm. I am not sure about trinity church or observatory at Hancock. You can always go to top of the hub to see the city from above! Enjoy!
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
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 airbb and vacationrental and hope you find a good option. Also use kayak and hopper for other hotel options.
