You can do either. It's about a 15 minute walk.

Easy walk either down Stuart or boylston. Only take a cab if bad weather.

You can also take public transit, the T Orange Line, from Back Bay to Downtown Crossing Sta., which is one block from the Common. It's a nice walk tho. If you want to look at shops, walk down Boylston or Newbury Sts. For a walk down a grand boulevard, walk down Commonwealth Ave.

Taking a train to Boston Common would involve a 3-block walk to the Green Line station (Copley). Going inbound, the next stop is Arlington which is where the Public Gardens are located. In my opinion, this is the prettiest spot in the city. The stop after that is Boylston which is where Boston Common is.

I'm with the others here; it's a nice walk. Enjoy the scenery.
