The area
Address
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.
How to get there
  • Copley • 3 min walk
  • Prudential • 7 min walk

    Nice walk in Boston’s Back Bay
    It’s a great place to walk and enjoy a nice day out. There’s lots of shops and food spots to choose from. Not the easiest place to park, so I’d recommend Ubering there or taking public transportation

    Very upmarket shopping area
    You will have to dig deep to shop along Newbury street, it is a very well kept area with high end shops selling high end merchandise with high end price tags to match. The eateries seem to match this area also, lots of well dressed attractive looking people hanging out here. Lovely area to visit even though like me you may not stop to shop.

    Beating commercial heart of Boston
    Newbury Street is the beating commercial heart of Boston. This street is jam-packed night and day, and is lined with so many stores and restaurants that you could walk down this street every day and find something new to see every day. Stores and restaurants are pricier closer to the gardens, and become more affordable as you make your way down the street. I love looking at the elegant brownstones while I'm here as well. There are always people here, so if you love being surrounded by other people, then this is the place for you.

    Newbury street is a great place to eat.
    This is a great street with lots of shops & restaurants. We ate at Eva’s one night, wouldn’t go back- expensive & portions small. One night we had a late drink and snack, which was excellent at Piattini’s restaurant. Would go back to eat here.

    Shopping...Something for Everybody
    A group of us visiting Boston, wandered over to Newberry St. We weren't disappointed. Lots of well known stores and one-of-a-kinds. All of us had a chance to buy something special in Boston. Fun street....

    Nice for just a walk even if you don’t buy anthing
    Nice place to talk a walk on a beautiful fall day. The restaurant’s look inviting and the shops are unique and worth popping your head in. Only reason I didn’t rate higher is because it’s a pricey street. So if you’re looking for bargains this isn’t the street to find it on.

One trip to Newbury street is a must while in Boston , this time we came to see watches at Brietling Rolex and Hublot. There was some protest going on for animal rights.

We walked this street on Sunday morning. It's lively and fun with a market atmosphere and lots of families. We had coffee and pastries while people watching.

Walked down this beautiful street on a sunny afternoon when all the cars etc are prohibited from using - so space for lots of pedestrians to walk freely and admire the high end shops, stalls and street performances. Great atmosphere and plenty of places to eat

Our hotel was on this street and boy, did we pick the right place in the center of the action. It was bustling and had no limit on the places to shop or eat. Make reservations for dinner as many places were full.
