    Favorite thing: Newbury Street is the place where affluent, trendy, and beautiful people go to see and be seen. Your chance of running into a Ferrari or Porsche, or a Euro-wannabe, is higher here than anywhere else in Boston. The place is an eclectic mix of posh designer outlets, chic boutiques, sidewalk cafes, ice cream parlors, and ethnic restaurants. Most shopfronts are housed in the tidy townhouses typical of Back Bay, giving them a charming Euro feel. Even if you're not into people watching, it can be fun to walk around here, day or night.. Newbury street ends at the Public Garden while Copley Plaza is just a block away to the south and the Esplanade a few blocks to the north, so it's really the hub of things.

    Fondest memory: Ben and Jerry's, Emack and Bolio's, Herrell's, J.P. Lick's, all ice cream shops :)
