Newbury St., in Boston, Mass., is associated with having an urban European neighborhood look. While I have never been to Europe, family members and friends have told me that the similarities between this Boston street and historic, retail sections of a European city are uncanny. The outdoor cafes, high end shops, boutiques and galleries that you often won't find in your basic cookie-cutter mall, some stores with a bit of upscale bohemia, indie book stores, myriad well-kept 19th century brownstone buildings as well as a "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" people-watching paradise lend Newbury Street this casual Euro vibe.

Located in the Back Bay area. Newbury St., this chic neighborhood is ideal for a stroll, window shopping, a casual outdoor patio meal (in the warm weather, of course), and as a Boston travel experience that you just won't find in many cities -- that is, a historically intact neighborhood that doesn't try too hard to wear its influences on its sleeves. Unlike those phony, modern developments that try to recreate something of the past, Newbury St. is the "real deal!"
