Beverly Hills has Rodeo Drive, and Boston has Newbury Street. Serious shoppers will want to head over to this famed street, where they’ll find eight blocks of luxurious goods. Both independent boutiques and national brands hold court here in historic brownstones, which are mixed with newer construction to make one of America’s unique shopping strips. A handful of restaurants and cafés also line the street, so you can give your feet (and your credit card) some needed rest.
If it’s cold or rainy out, you might want to head over to Copley Place for some retail therapy. This upscale mall houses a series of shops, restaurants and bars spread across multiple downtown blocks and buildings, and connects major hotels such as the Boston Marriott Copley Place and the Westin Hotel. It also connects to the Shops at Prudential Center. Upscale shopping options include Tiffany & Co., Jimmy Choo, Barneys New York, Louis Vuitton and more. Of course, if all you want is a Boston keychain, you can snag one of those at a kiosk in Faneuil Hall.
The best Boston shopping is at:
· Newbury Street for art galleries and upscale shops
· Malls like Copley Place/Prudential
· Antiquing on Charles Street and independent boutiques
· Fanueil Hall Marketplace for kids
Just steps away from the hotel in the heart of Back Bay is Newbury Street, Boston’s most enchanting shopping area. Eight blocks long, the street is lined with boutiques, brand name shops, restaurants and art galleries. During the warm weather months, the street overflows with window shoppers and outdoor diners.
