Famed Newbury Street shopping in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood brings together internationally known designers such as Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren, trendy boutiques, national retailers, and individually owned shops.

A large number of Newbury Street art galleries make this a popular destination for gallery strolls.
Newbury Street is located in Boston's elegant Back Bay neighborhood. All the shops can be found along 8 blocks sandwiched between the Public Garden and Massachusetts Avenue.
