Newbury Street Shopping Mecca

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Chuckk on December 3, 2004

You won't find Home Depot here or many bargains. This is all high-end merchandise, with famous brands from Gucci to Benetton, art and antiques stores galore (too many to mention), the usual GAP, and even a CVS (drug store). The holiday season is a very special time of year, with decor, lights, and nip of winter in the air. Make sure you visit just before evening to get a taste of old street-lighting fixtures, sprinkled bright lights throughout the street. See photos. There are restaurants on every corner, and most shops are open till 9pm. Parking on the street is metered at 25 cents for 15 minutes, so bring your quarters for up to two hours' parking at a time.
