You can easily spend an entire day in Boston just on Newbury Street. It's a window shopper's paradise, and you will find a great variety of stores, from big chains to small boutiques. Plenty of dining options on the street as well!

Newbury Street is a great place to stroll and shop. There are many stores of every type and lots of places to stop for food or drinks. Been here before and will say that it is more enjoyable when the weather is a little warmer....More

Nice place to walk but everything is super expensive. I’m talking high by an order or magnitude! Who can afford this...and most of it is junk! Even the chocolate stores were ridiculous prices. Keep your wallet in your pocket! Nice walk though.

We went to find a specific shop which was disappointing when we found it. The shops are probably more suited for younger people than us.

This is a great area to walk around and window shop. There are lots a high-end stores as well as other stores (which unfortunately charge high-end prices). Great place to go and wander around and window shop.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

One end (the Common) or the other end (T station) - it doesn’t really matter.

There is but prepare for $3.75 an hour at the meters. Sunday is the best day considering free parking but take the train if possible.

Yes most appeared to be open, but I think reduced hours like 11am-5/6pm.
