    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
