Newbury Street: shopping nirvana


The most famous street in Boston is one of the country's best shopping destinations.

Newbury Street is Boston's top shopping street. The epicentre of the very chic Back Bay neighbourhood, this eight-block-long street is the most emblematic in the city. Its 19th-century brownstone buildings, with their long bow windows and small gardens, and the proximity of Boston's large green areas, give it a unique atmosphere.

Here, independent boutiques and vintage shops share space with major US and international brands. Chanel, Hermes, Madewell, and American Apparel are all present and accounted for, and J. Crew and Gucci are just around the corner. There are also numerous art galleries, third-wave coffee shops, and trendy restaurants.
