Got a couple of days in Beantown? Check out this gloguide to make the most of it!
Article 24 - Start your day in brunch heaven. May I recommend the Lobster MacMuffin? When in Rome...
Cambridge / Harvard Yhard - Iconic Boston. The Cambridge area is lovely with lots of coffee shops and things to see. Make your way to Harvard campus and spend the afternoon wandering through the brick building and history. The weekend we visited, there was an event with music, crafts, art installations, and giant see-saws!
Flour - Stumbled on this spot and fell in love! Everything was fresh and delicious, you really can't go wrong. In addition to your dish, you've got to try the housemade raspberry seltzer and the Boston creme pie.
Fenway Park / Red Socks - Depending on the time of year, try to catch a ball game. Whether you're a baseball fan or not, the energy of the crowd and the stadium are quite an experience! Plus the Fenway area has dozens of restaurants and bars to explore.
Yankee Lobster Co - What better way to start the day than with an authentic lobster roll? This gem is tucked away in Boston's South End, just down the street from the Boston Tea Party site. Cheers!
Harpoon Brewery - To wash down that delicious lobster roll, why not try some local brews and UFOs (unfiltered offering)? Sample a UFO flight, nibble on a pretzel, and carboload for the day of walking ahead.
Boston Common - Enjoy the performers, grab some food from a vendor, or just sit by the lake and people watch. This is a great place to start your day.
Freedom Trail - The heart of Boston. This is a great way to see the city, experience a little American history, and best of all, it's free! Start near the Boston Common in front of the Massachusetts State House and make your way into the North End. Here's a map. Since it's self paced, you can stop along the route for a bite, drink, or photo op.
Yvonne's - Quick Freedom Trail detour for a cocktail. Well, not just a cocktail, a glamorous speakeasy where there may be fire.
Italian food in the North End - You should end up in the North End right around dinner, which is perfect because the North End is known for Italian Food. For a quick, tasty, affordable bite, I recommend Dino's! Trust me, you'll want an extra side of white sauce.
Modern Pastry - The sweetest way to end the day. This popular spot usually has a line around the block, but what most don't know is that there is that this shop has 2 store fronts! There's a smaller store just next door that has all the goods.
Boston is full of history, life, and activities and this list only scratches the surface. What are some of your favorite Boston spots?
