We enjoyed a nice walk and window shopping. Lots of places to stop for a coffee or snack. Left the kids back at the hotel and took a nice walk. Sidewalks seem to be expanded and tons of crosswalks. Great brownstones.

There are some one of a kind shops in this area where you can find fun things, but most stores are expensive brand name stores here.

Great way to spend a day in Boston. Beautiful old buidling with quaint shops and boutiques lining both sides of the streets. Very clean and so pretty in the spring with the tulips and other colorful flowers.

Enjoyed strolling down the Back Bay streets and viewing the architectural features of the varied row houses. Usually doors and iron work, as well as the pretty seasonal plant beds and planters. These residents must keep local florists/Garden Centers busy.

Very fun, lots of fun shopping. Funky, quirky and everything in between. Also lots of sidewalk cafes. A great place to spend the afternoon strolling around. Great photos can be taken of the shop fronts, brownstones and people here!

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.
