THE BACK BAY

The Back Bay is a man-made neighborhood, taking its name from the body of water that was filled to create one of the city's most active and well-known districts. With boundaries roughly defined as Massachusetts Avenue on the west, Arlington Street on the east, the Charles River to the north, and the Prudential Center and Copley Place developments on the south, the Back Bay has carved its own niche as a shopping mecca and an upscale residential area.

In addition to shopping along trendy Newbury Street, visitors to the Back Bay area are attracted to the beauty of the Commonwealth Mall, which is a park that runs down the center of Comonwealth Avenue. Other sights include the architectural landmarks in Copley Square, including the main branch of the Boston Public Library, and the serenity of the Esplanade along the Charles River.

Parking in Back Bay is difficult to come by, but the neighborhood is easily accessible to the MBTA's Green and Orange Lines.
