Back Bay Boston
The Back Bay neighborhood runs along the Charles River on the opposite side of Cambridge. Upscale shopping, boutiques, art galleries, and fabulous restaurants makes this trendy neighborhood a must-see on your Boston visit. The area is home to Copley Place, Prudential Center and The John Hancock Tower, Trinity Church (one of the country's 10 finest buildings), and shopping along Newbury Street.
Much of the Back bay is built on a landfill. As a result, it is one of the few places in Boston where streets are actual laid out in a straight line. The Green line runs through the neighborhood providing easy access. Historical buildings include the Gibson House, First Baptist Church, Boston Public Library, and the Institute of Contemporary Art.
Be sure to walk down Commonwealth Ave, Boston's first planned neighborhood from the 19th century. It was modeled on the Boulevards of Paris.
