I was told Back Bay was the place to be and that is so right. The shops, restaurants, and attractions on Newbury St, Mass Ave, Boylston St, the Esplanade, and more make this a great area. Minutes away from The Fens, Fenway Park, and Boston...More

This is a lovely area for a walk around. The old houses and quiet streets have some very interesting hidden gardens between the rows of houses.

What a great little neighbourhood. Our hotel was right in the middle, and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Bars, restaurants, Boston Common, are all right there.

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

Hi Sandra, Any and all info regarding where we can watch our cousin in the marathon this weekend would be a tremendous help. I hear there's bleachers somewhere for spectators, and fun things for the crowd to get involved. Any clue about any of this, or where exactly it is in Back Bay? Thanks!
