This affluent Boston neighborhood that rims the Charles River is best known for its rows of four- and five-story brownstone residences, shops, and restaurants.

Back Bay is infused with Gothic and Victorian architectural styles. The Prudential Center, Copley Place Mall, and Boylston Street are tourist hot spots, packed with endless shops, bars, and eateries. Copley Square is the neighborhood's historical center. Here you'll find Trinity Church, the Boston Public Library, the John Hancock Tower, and for out-of-towners, a network of hotels connected by glass-encased pedestrian tunnels.
