BACK BAY

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. With its charming brownstones and peaceful streets, Back Bay is one of Boston's most exclusive neighborhoods.Back Bay continues to attract attention for its famed high-end shopping, ritzy hotels and upscale restaurants, and world-renowned architecture—all promising that this highly-sought after neighborhood’s popularity continues to rise, even if its water levels don’t. 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.
