When I lived in Boston, I had a skin care practice on this fashionable street. It's super upscale now with many brand name stores, boutiques, good restaurants and hair/skin care salons. Walking from the Public Garden all the way to Massachusetts Avenue along Newbury window shopping, stopping for ice-cream or a bite to eat, and people gazing could be an... More

Family went when it was very cold outside, but if weather cooperates it would be much better when warmer as this is several blocks long, both sides of the street of elegant shopping and eats. If in Boston, add to the bucket list.

I loved strolling on Newbury and popping into little specialty shops, getting a cup of coffee and even a manicure.

OK - when I come to Boston I am always on a detour to Newbury Street. Starting at the Commons one goes from Fifth Ave. NYC level shops to the far end, simplifying down to a very good TJ Max. Lots of original boutiques, salons, fun stops for food treats and the like in between. And people watching -- oh... More

Great to start a walk in either the Boston Garden or on the Common, take a swan boat ride, then head up Newbury to enjoy the high end shops and galleries. The New England Watercolor Guild has their headquarters and gallery here. Tiffany's has a new store anchoring one end of the Street, opposite a multi floor Burberry's. There are... More

If you like Indian food be sure to go to the Kashmir! Stephanie's is a great breakfast/brunch place to eat.

Newbury Street is the fashionable shopping street in Back Bay, Boston. Situated alongside luxurious condominiums and brownstone apartments, it is perfect for strolling, eating or just browsing. On a warm day the trees and flowers are in full bloom.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
