I visited Paper Source on a recent trip to Boston. I had to go out of my regular routine to go to the shop, but it was worth it. The store has two large rooms of paper, stamps, paper decorations, fun gifts, and paper and envelopes in just about any color you can imagine. The staff was really helpful. I... More

I got informed that PS have a $25 fee for changing the presses to multilingual typesettings, because swedish includes 3 special characters that don't exist in english. I thought the fee was really expensive so I decided to... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
