Newbury Street boasts two miles packed with unparalleled shops, restaurants, and salons in the Back Bay area. This whole area was nonexistent until the late 1800s, where construction crews filled in part of Boston Harbor and created all of Back Bay, including Newbury Street. The street has served as a luxurious residential area since the late 19th century, and today, as Boston's premier fashion hotspot. Often perceived as a location for upscale retail only, this unique street accommodates all tastes and price ranges for those seeking some Boston charm. The gourmet Pazzo Restaurant and Marc Jacobs caliber stores are matched equally with one-of-a-kind bohemian boutiques and family-friendly cafés.
Ever wonder where New England pop-culture giant Newbury Comics originated? The first location was founded here by two MIT students as a small comic shop in 1978, with the flagship store still standing at #332. For makeup lessons or a fresh new haircut, head over to Diego salon, nationally renowned for styling news anchors and top models. To capture a taste of Boston nightlife, check out Daisy Buchanan's for mouth-watering burgers, an impressive beer and wine menu, and the opportunity to spot local professional athletes.
You'll never lose your way on Newbury Street. Whether you are close to hopping onto the Massachusetts Turnpike toward the west end of the street or hopping into the Frog Pond near the east end, all of the cross streets are alphabetical, beginning with Arlington Street near the Boston Common.
