The most grand neighborhood boston and the world has ever seen: Back Bay.

Boston's Back Bay was built with the goal of creating the most grand neighborhood in the world. Modeling the malls of Paris, Back Bay is the only "planned" neighborhood in Boston. And with planning comes great success.

Back Bay is one of Boston's most iconic and well-known neighborhood. Located just west of the Public Garden and Boston Common, Back Bay is bordered by the Charles River to the south and west, Beacon Hill to the north, and the Financial District to the east. Back Bay is home to some of Boston's most popular attractions, including Newbury Street, Copley Square, and the Prudential Center.

What makes Back Bay a great place to live?

There are many reasons why Back Bay is such a desirable place to live. First, the cluster of restaurants, shops, and cultural institutions centered in the Back Bay speak to its prime position within the city.

Back Bay is home to some of Boston's best shopping, dining, and nightlife. Newbury Street is particularly popular, with its high-end designer boutiques, fashion chains, art galleries and patio cafes set in elegant brick townhouses. Yet the area maintains a residential feel, with apartments perched amid Newbury Street boutiques. Back Bay residents have the city at their fingertips.

Another reason why Back Bay is such a great place to live is its architecture.

One of the things that makes Back Bay so unique is its architecture. The neighborhood is filled with beautiful Victorian brownstone houses and grandiose churches. Mansions dot the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets, many on Paris-inspired Commonwealth Avenue. Back Bay is considered one of the best preserved examples of 19th-century urban design in the United States.


If you're looking for a quintessential Boston experience, look no further than Back Bay. From its beautiful architecture to its desirable location, Back Bay has everything you need and more.
