History

Back Bay arguably has one of the most unique histories of any distinct neighborhood in Boston. A century and a half ago it was covered in water – nothing but swampland. However, as the population of the city drastically increased, so did the demand for land. City planners undertook an enormous landfill project and turned the area into what it is today. Interestingly enough, Back Bay is the only portion of the city to be designed with a genuine street grid pattern. Furthermore, finding your way through the neighborhood is easy, as cross streets are in alphabetical order (Arlington, Berkeley, Clarendon, etc.).

Getting Around

Back Bay is located in Downtown Boston, which means you probably should avoid getting there by car. Yes, it’s possible. Will you find parking? It’s difficult but not impossible if you’re ok paying for parking at a parking house. We would recommend avoiding to drive it it’s possible and instead take advantage of the multiple other transportation options.

You can easily get to, or travel from, Back Bay using the subway, or as the Bostonian call it, the “T”. Both the orange line and the green line are located in or near the border of Back Bay. You can also catch an AmTrak train from Back Bay Station. In addition to driving and taking the “T” you can also use the bus as a transportation option as several routes service the area. If you’re just hanging around Back Bay for the day, you should be walking. Back Bay is a great area for walking, and you won’t be sorry you did either as the neighborhood has tons of things to offer easily accessible by foot.
