The trains were easy to negotiate making the Back Bay convenient to all of our destinations. It is difficult to find lodgings in the historic area -- making Back Bay the best best.

went into Prudential Center and many stores to shop for anything you need inside. Saks 5th Avenue and Microsoft Store and Ralph Lauren Polo were some of our favorite stops

You get a little tired looking at all the immensely expensive brownstone homes, but it is an attractive area. For really nice view, go over to the Charles River - you need to find one of the bridges over Storrow Drive to get there.

Great place to hang around in Boston. It´s magical. You will find A LOT of trees, typical Boston streets and places where you can breathe fresh air.

After a full day of meetings I look forwrad to heading out for a run around the Charles River. The skyline views are pretty in each direction. The path is well lit with plenty of people walking, running, or riding bikes. I always felt safe.

Boston's back bay is a nice walking tour. Great architecture and historic places to see here. Spend a few hours walking

We stayed in this area when we visited. Conveniently located to the Amtrak station with excellent to good hotels in the price range. Good restaurants and places to walk, but still within easy access to the bus selling city.
A very good area to base yourself if visiting as a tourist.

Back Bay is a neighborhood that preserves the feel and look of when the city started. Little brick houses with tons of trees. Lots of Cherry blossoms in the late spring. You can go visit Berklee College of Music, take a shopping or dining walk down Newbury Street or simply walk to the Boston Commons park.

We walked around Back Bay for fresh air after the transatlantic flight on a Sunday afternoon. The walk on the river/harbour front was nice (mind the cycle trails) - tranquil away from the traffic. The Newbury Street and shops/food areas/churches need further time to explore. That will be another visit I'm affraid
