Back Bay Real Estate Information

Back Bay, with endearing brownstones and quaint, quiet streets lined with trees, is easily one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Boston. The historic area is a center for popular night spots and great places to eat out, making it an interesting and exciting place to live. You can feed the local ducks down by the Charles River as you rest on the grass, or take a walk to Newbury Street and enjoy some retail therapy while getting some fresh air - or just admire the beautiful, expensive townhouses sitting just across the road and through a lush, green park full of trees.

Following Newbury Street will take you to a place that feels like a hidden paradise; a beautiful area named the Public Garden, across from the Boston Common but in a world of its own. It was the very first botanical garden in the United States, and boasts a beautiful pond in it's center while the border is covered in flower beds. The pond is actually quite well known, thanks to the swan style paddle boats visitors can ride across it - it is also the oldest public park in America, having been established in 1634.

Just a stones throw away from the Public Garden you will come across Copley Square, one of the most famous landmarks in Boston. Here you will see locals relaxing and eating their lunch on the lawns, tourists appreciating the incredibly architecture and in the warmer months you can often find young children playing around in the fountain to cool off. Then there is the beautiful Trinity Church, built over a period of five years between 1872 and 1877, it is widely considered to be one of the greatest archeological designs still standing in the United States today. One last landmark to make note of is the new John Hancock Tower; it stands at 791 feet high, boasting 60 floors and as such is the tallest building in New England.

When you come to the border of Copley Square there is the Copley Mall as well as the Prudential Center to check out - they make up two of the most popular restaurants and shops in all of Boston; you can enjoy some retail therapy at high end stores and boutiques before a meal at a high end eatery, even lobster!
