The Back Bay area in Boston is quite beautiful. There are lots of restaurants to choose from and nice little shops to shop at, too. A nice park to visit, as well.

So we spent a week in Boston recently and stayed in Back Bay.
The streets are so well laid out and the front gardens are so well tended. Great for shopping and eating out. There's so much to see and we always felt safe. Worth a stroll around.

Lived in the area 25 years ago, we came back as a family touring colleges. We stayed at the large Marriott, and we walked all throughout back bay. It used to be a very up – scale, "hip"area. And it still is!
Lovely residential, and city streets to walk on, close to everything! Walking distance to the parks (Swan boats on the lake) "T" and fun restaurants.

I would highly recommend coming to back bay, as it is a great location in Boston!

Here's a tip! If you are in the area during the summer, with kids, be sure to ride the swan boats! It is a quick 15 minute boat ride on a small lake. Even the teenagers had a blast! If you are thinking of moving here as a single person, this location has a very young "vibe".

Please press "helpful" if you found this review insightful, as I wonder if anyone actually read these.....
