Copley Square is a gift to photographers. The contrasting styles of Trinity Church, the massive Boston Public Library and the modern skyscrapers, is awe inspiring. From Copley Square it is a reasonable walk to the Common, the State House and the temptations of Boylston St.

Staying in the Copley Place area puts you in the middle of everything--fine hotels, great restaurants and high end shopping at Copley and the Prudential Center.

Green lawn with occasional farmers’ market worth a stop to see the first public library in the US on one side and Trinity Church on the opposite side. There are also notable skyscrapers and ither churches around.

Located in Boston's Back Bay, Copley Square was originally known as Art Square, due to numerous surrounding art and cultural institutions. It was renamed in 1883 after Colonial Artist John Singleton Copley, whose statue stands proudly in the square. Admire the unique water fountain, search...More
