Back Bay - Boston - Reviews of Back Bay - TripAdvisor

It's easy to understand why the Back Bay is one of America's most desirable neighborhoods. Newbury Street, Boylston Street and Commonwealth Avenue are lined with unique shops, trendy restaurants and vintage homes, making the Back Bay an extremely fashionable destination for Boston residents and visitors. In fact, it's not uncommon to spot celebrities strolling up and down these picturesque streets. This bustling neighborhood also houses the two tallest members of Boston's skyline, the Prudential Center and the John Hancock Tower, in addition to architectural treasures such as Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library.

Many cities do not have one "downtown" area. For example, in NYC, "Downtown" is a neighborhood. Same with Boston. In fact, Downtown Boston has fewer amentities for residents than neighborhoods such as the Back Bay or the South End.
As for a "small loft", do you mean an actual loft, as in a former wharehouse/industrial building?

Sites of Boston in winter

Hi My family and I have a guest visiting from the Fillipines. She and my 11 yo daughter will be visiting Boston most likely by car tomorrow. My 9 yo may be along too.
My friend expressed an interest in Paul Revere's house and Harvard University for tomorrow. On Tuesday, she will visit the Museum of Fine Arts and possibly the Gardner Museum. Though I am from Boston and am familiar with many of the sites, I would appreciate any advice about one other site to combine with Harvard and Revere's house keeping in mind the ages. It will be VERY cold too.
We are choosing from among USS Constitution, Bunker Hill, Old North Church, Back Bay, Copley Square, Fanueil Hall, etc.

More on Boston

Per Mr. Revere, but Duck Tours are fun, though necessarily tourist laden. If you want to see the classic old brownstones, take a walking tour of Beacon Hill (and/or nearby Back Bay). I also recommend a trip out to Cambridge for the funkier more Berkeleyesque side of Boston.
If you have a chance to get outside of the city, try the quintessential Rockport ( which is like a slice of Maine, only 1 hour out of town.
My favorite nearby escape is to DeCordova Museum and Outdoor Sculpture Garden ( In addition to the outdoor sculptures and excellent local modern art collection, it has my favorite gift shop and the most irreverent curator's comments that I've ever seen
