The fact that it was once an actual tidal area helps explain the remarkable density of beautiful, 19th century architectural gems to be found in this much-admired district near downtown Boston. Back Bay breathes history. From its row upon row of brownstone homes to its tree-lined cobblestone streets, this is a wonderful, vibrant neighborhood that is distinctly its own while also offering residents close-in access to high-end shopping,
many of the most important cultural hotspots and, of course, Fenway Park. Whether you're looking to dine out, take in a concert, catch a game, or play one of your own, Back Bay puts you at the center of it all.
