We stopped by the Back Bay area to watch the sunset and it was gorgeous. Love the multicoloured skies. Looks surreal !

The Back Bay offers a variety of sights and sounds. Stroll among the boutiques, people-watch outside the Boston Public Library, dine at the many great restaurants along Huntington or Boylston Streets. There's a little bit of everything here, from bargain shopping to high-end fashion.

I make it out to the Back Bay every chance I get. Nice place to view and browse. Good art galleries in the area and nice restaurants. It is a bit expensive, but would be a great place to stay during your visit to Boston....More

The hotels are expensive and there are nice upscale shops. It has a subway station so it is easy to get around.

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
