Located at the crossroads of the Fenway, South End and Back Bay neighborhoods is Symphony, where the best of all that Boston has to offer is within blocks of each other.
Symphony is perfect for those who want to be in the middle of it all. A step in one direction brings you to Boylston and Newbury streets, prime spots for shopping and great dining. Or you can take a step back and hear the smooth sounds of a saxophone at one of the country’s best concert halls. It’s a neighborhood with a world-class city for its back yard.
At the heart of it lies Symphony Hall, home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Spend an evening walking around and you’ll see the next generation of international talent making their way to nearby New England Conservatory, Berklee College of Music or the Boston Conservatory.
If visual art is more your pace, Symphony does not disappoint. A short subway stop away is the Museum of Fine Arts and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. You can also walk towards the South End galleries where you’ll find art from artists in all stages of their career.
Stop by the Reflecting Pool at Christian Science Park for a break. It is beautiful in the evening when lit up. The plaza was designated a Boston Landmark in 2011 by the Boston Landmarks Commission. There you’ll find the Mother Church, Mary Baker Eddy Library and the Mapparium, a three-story-tall globe made of stained glass.
Nearby Prudential Center is a shopper’s paradise with high-end brands and specialty shops. Eatlay Boston is an Italian lover’s dream. You won’t leave empty-handed with all its fresh food and mouth-watering delicacies.
And, if school is bringing you to Boston, Symphony is just a short ride away from numerous colleges and universities in the area, including Northeastern University, Wentworth Institute, Simmons College, Emmanuel, The School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
