Experience Newbury Street

Located in Boston's back bay, Newbury Street is the ultimate Boston tourist shopping destination.  The street is filled with rich history, high end shops, quaint gift shops, galleries, restaurants and salons. So find an ATM and pack those wallets full of green.  You'll need them.

The area at one point was nothing more than part of Boston harbor. An underwater gold mind ready to be discovered.  Boston construction of the area was started in the mid 1800's.  Many of Boston's highlands as well as neighboring areas where dug out to fill what is today the back bay area. The area was filled to Claredon St by 1860, Exeter St by 1870 and completed in 1882. European design elements for the area included grid patterns, wide boulevards and parkways.

Originally the residential area was very prestigious and exclusive. A very desirable place to live because of the modern design, heating and plumbing. The area was said to eclipse the Beacon Hill scene at the time of inception.

Today the area is said to be the "Rodeo Drive of the East".  It serves as Bostons hot spot of style and fashion. It mirrors exclusive districts in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. Offering shoppers a very unique experience with beautiful brown stone architecture which house shops on basements as well as first and second floors. You can also find a fair share of street vendors. The more expensive boutiques line the Boston Public Garden end while you'll find the less expensive on the Mass Ave end.
