This is a great area to walk around and window shop. There are lots a high-end stores as well as other stores (which unfortunately charge high-end prices). Great place to go and wander around and window shop.

Worth a walk down Newbury just for the window shopping. High end, gorgeous stuff, in a very attractive part of Boston. Chanel, Brooks Brothers, many designer names. Leave your wallet at home.

There is but prepare for $3.75 an hour at the meters. Sunday is the best day considering free parking but take the train if possible.
