We stayed at the Marriott in Copley so we did some exploring up and down the streets. Beautiful buildings, museums, shopping, just about everything you could think of.

We enjoyed walking around the square as it has character and a great atmosphere. The design of the buildings surrounding it is also really neat and beautiful.

As in any major city, a square with green trees, benches & tables, water fountains - provides a welcome reprieve and resting place. In day hours, Copley Square buzzes w/ people and activities. The open air market was a pleasant surprise on a Tuesday. For...More

The church was scaffolded so limited views and access. Cute statues of the tortoise and the hare. Bustling area with places to sit, drink and eat. Pretty outdoor area.

Stayed 3 days in Copley Square area. Lots of high end shopping. Buildings attached so don't have to go outside in bad weather for the malls. Lots of local restaurants and boutique shopping also along the streets.

There is nothing special in this shopping mall, apart from its location and the fact that "The Cheesecake factory" is in there. It ideal for a rainy day in Boston

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
