Boston’s most exclusive shopping street offers convenience, charm, and cache. The Newbury Street brownstones contain boutiques, high-end shops and expensive restaurants. Look for the mega Nike store, understated Armani emporium and the refined Brooks Brothers, as well as second-hand clothing stores, sex shops and comic book stores.
The main commercial artery of the Back Bay is also home to first-rate art galleries. If you get hungry, there are plenty of excellent eateries and cool cafes.
You don’t have to have deep pockets to partake of Newbury Street’s most appealing activity: people-watching. So take a seat at a sidewalk cafe and watch the pretty people do their thing.
