There are numerous outdoor cafes for watching the world go by. One block away from the Arlington Street and Copley and Hynes/ICA stops on the Green Line.

One block over is Boylston Street, which also has a lot of stores and restaurants. And a couple blocks over from that is Copley Place, which is the place to go if you want to pretend you're in a Dallas mall while in Boston - it's a large indoor mall anchored by Neimann-Marcus (and is connected by human hamster tubes to the Prudential Center, anchored by Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue).

Comments
