"Back Bay" Back Bay Tip by KarenandCory

Back Bay, Boston: 7 reviews and 5 photos

Favorite thing: The Back Bay neighborhood, well known for expensive housing and first-class shopping, is dominated by brownstone townhouses. Outdoor cafes and upscale shops line Newbury Street, the perfect place to people watch.
Take a stroll in The Public Garden.
In Copley Square, visit Trinity Church, John Hancock Tower, and the Boston Public Library.
