Back Bay Travel Guide

Hotels in Back Bay

The epitome of Boston sophistication, the Taj Boston, formerly the Ritz-Carlton, is perfectly perched in downtown Boston overlooking both the Public Garden and the Frog Pond at Boston Common. The hotel, originally opened in 1927, feels like a luxurious, opulent private residence.

Restaurants in Back Bay

With kitschy decor that includes lobsters painted on the walls and brown paper tablecoths, Jasper White's Summer Shack attempts to capture the feel of a rustic seaside clamshack in Boston’s gentrified Back Bay neighborhood.

Things to do in Back Bay

Taking up an entire, five-story building in Boston’s fashionable Back Bay, this Newbury Street day spa features natural wood accents, fresh flowers, and natural light, allowing the space to exude a clean, relaxing vibe.
