Getting around in Boston
Unlike most of the United States, Boston's narrow streets and dense building makes getting around by foot, public transit, or even bicycle often easier than driving. The subway, or "T" as we refer to it here, allows visitors and residents to access the majority of the city without the necessity of a car.
About Back Bay
Back Bay is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Boston, and is known as the home of the city's tallest skyscrapers, its historic brownstones, the natural beauty of Commonwealth Avenue's tree-lined mall, and Newbury Street's world-renowned shopping.
Until the mid-1800s, Back Bay was little more than a swampy tidal bay nearly separating the peninsula of Boston from the mainland. From the 1850s to the 1880s, an ambitious landfill project nearly doubled the size of the city and created the entirety of the modern neighborhood we know today. For more information:
