When traffic in the city can get dull and boring, Storrow Drive at least provides you with a great view of the Charles River. It is also much safer than Memorial Drive in Cambridge (opposite side of river) as Storrow Drive has a divider.

It passes the BU campus on the south and the Charles River Esplanade on the north and ends just east of the Longfellow Bridge (MA 3) by Lederman Park. It’s three... More

Better than usual to travel into and out of the Back Bay on our visit. The other option is to take Exit 22 from the Mass. Turnpike. That will bring you into Copley Square or the Prudential Center complex. (Two choices from the exit)

As long as it's not rush hour - using Storrow Drive to get through the city is your best bet. You can hop on and off and get from one neighborhood to another (North End to Allston) pretty quickly. Only problem is there are a lot of bad drivers on it who don't yield to the rest of traffic. I... More

This curvy road that runs along the Charles River with views of sail boats and crew shells is fun to drive along on your way in or out of Boston.

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.
