Neighbourhood: 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.

A Must.

Visit to the Newbury street is a must if visiting Boston and its surrounding areas.It is the most happening place in back bay with high end artsy shops and boutiques . Alot of eateries outdoors and indoors. I personally go there for CHANEL and H$M.

Another of Boston's distinct neighborhoods. If you're taking a girls trip, this is a must. The boutique shopping is plentiful. Saltie Girl is a great spot to rest for bloody marys and seafood.

Old Boston street has new city vibe with eats, arts, and boutiques!
Jul. 2021
When visiting a new city (or visiting for the first time in many years), we like to walk about and get a feel for the city. We walked Newbury Street at midday and again late afternoon. Lovely neighborhood with the old brownstones setting the feel of the street! Lots of boutiques and galleries to check out! And restaurants and cafes to enjoy!! Most are quite busy at lunchtime so make sure you have time to chill while awaiting your meal. We found a streetside cafe La Neta in the late afternoon to sit back and enjoy a brew while taking in the streetscape and the people while enjoying our Lorenza, an open-faced grilled corn tortilla topped with beans, cheese, steak, pico de gallo and guacamole. Hit the spot!!!

Great Place to Shop, Eat and Observe
May 2021
What a great little street! My wife and I liked it so much, we visited 2-3 times while in Boston. Really nice restaurants, although some are a bit pricey, and some really nice shops with unique fare. Bought some custom greeting cards, a pair of Allbirds shoes (they are made from either wool or a tree byproduct) and had interesting meals and ice cream. You can also get something to eat or drink and just watch the people.
Many dog walkers with cute dogs as well. Highly recommend!

What fun on a spring evening!

This is a great walking, shopping, people-watching street. And if you can, stop at Amorino Ice Cream for the most beautiful (and delicious) Ice cream you have ever had!

Boston chic!
Apr. 2021
This is Boston chic, such a beautiful street, perfect for a midday stroll with some shopping and eating.
The whole street has multiple stores offering a wide range of options. It also features cute little cafes, restaurants and bookstores.
It has beautiful trees, perfect brick buildings and the vibe to go along with it.
It is really such a nice spot in Boston, especially on sunny days.

MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY!

The "5th Avenue" of Boston. Many merchants impacted by Covid. But in its hey day, and when we are back, just stroll and feel like you are a Kennedy or a Kardashian - celebrity and rich central in a City still cemented in its roots.

Great for shopping and people watching!
Oct. 2020
You are here to shop, to eat and to people watch. Parking is definitely a challenge as most of the surrounding streets are set aside for resident permit parking. We were able to find a spot since residential parking permit rules take into effect at 6pm, so read signs carefully. Great shops and nice restaurant options. Allocate a few hours to walk around and enjoy the area. I compare this to Georgetown in DC or Soho in NYC. Packed sidewalks so if you are trying to avoid crowds this isn't for you. Everyone was wearing masks however and I was very impressed by that.
