As far as I’m concerned, Newbury Street is the perfect shopping destination. Stroll the boutiques along the brick row houses to find stylish clothing, amazing shoes and bespoke accessories of every type. If you want a local to bring you to the best boutiques of Newbury St, this is the walk for you. I'll take you to my favorite independent shops for sophisticated styles, street-chic fashions, rustic handmade threads, retro-hip sports gear and the best hot chocolate in the world. There's something for everyone on your shopping list.
