The Back Bay lays claim to some of the most exclusive real estate in Boston. A stroll down Newbury Street will take you from haute couture to haute cuisine, offering exclusive fashion boutiques and elegant restaurants with world renowned chefs. Commonwealth Avenue has some of the most elegant townhouses in the city, along with the pedestrian-friendly Commonwealth Avenue Mall - a picturesque, tree-lined green, dotted with sculptures and park benches. Marlborough Street has become a lovely refuge from the bustling shops. Back Bay is also home to the Public Gardens, Boston Common, the Charles River Esplanade and the historic Boston Public Library.
In many ways, this area is like the center of Boston. From here, you can access many attractive neighbourhoods of the city easily, either by car, foot or the subway.  But besides its ideal geography it just has a sort of magical attraction.  Most people visiting Boston as tourists or locals come to Newbury Street or the Public Gardens every time they visit.

The Mall's 32 acres were designed in the French boulevard style by Arthur Gilman in 1856.  His goal was "to obtain the uniformity which seems to us essential to the future beauty and dignity of the finest street in the city". Today, sweetgum, green ash, maple, linden, zelkova, Japanese pagoda and elm define this formal avenue, along with monuments decorating its expansive central promenade.
