OKay yes, it is a little pricey. But there are also some really nice/eccentric shops. It also depends which end you start on. If you start on the end near the Arlington T Stop you will hit Burberry and Chanel. If you start on the...More

I work on Newbury St lately. Lots of places to eat and drink. Boutique type salons and shops. Lots of snobby folks and people suck driving on the street so watch out.

If you want shopping, , dinning, boutiques and salons then you must visit Newburyport street. It is in the Back Bay Area and you will find international designers here.

Lots of shopping available, even on a Sunday. And watching the mix of locals and tourists make their way along is entertaining in its own right.

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

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.
