Hi Everyone! So over the weekend the boy and I went to visit his parents in New England! We went into Boston on Saturday and New Hampshire on Sunday. It was such a fun weekend! We go into Boston quite a bit when we visit his parents so I am going to share with you my favorite spots just in case you ever visit Bean town!
Over the weekend we saw his sister new apartment in Boston! It’s so quaint. Then we shot over to the North End to have Regina’s Pizza, Bova and walked around.
Here are some of the “must sees” I personally think you do not want to miss out when visiting Boston!
Must Sees are:
The Boston Commons- It’s like Boston’s Central Park. You can rent paddle boats and go around the lake. Grab a blanket, good book and chill. Go for a run. Have a picnic. Whatever your heart desires.
Take a walk down Newbury St- You can find anything and everything on Newbury St. They have great shopping and the layout of the stores is super cool too. Each block Newbury crosses it’s like a price bracket. If you start by The Ritz Carlton you have Chanel, Burberry, Valentino, etc. If you keep walking down you will hit BCBG, Michael Kors, etc. Walk down a little further you will hit “normally” priced clothes and the street ends with the Salvation Army. Plus mid-way Newbury St, you can see the Green Monster. There is something for everyone down on Newbury St.
Fenway/The Green Monster- If you are in town and can catch a Red Sox game, do it! I’m really not into sports, let alone a boring one like baseball that takes 4 hours for a game but the atmosphere of just being there is awesome. You get your sausages and peppers sandwich before the game with the “Sausage King” then you go in and get your $10 beer and some peanuts and it truly is magical. I know that sounds so lame but it is. If there is no game, Fenway does offer a tour and you can learn the history about the Boston Red Sox and they even take you up to the Green Monster!
The Custom’s House- the Marriott Custom’s House is a high end hotel. I wish I could afford to stay there for a night but it’s like $500 a night. One thing they do offer which is really cool is the hotel has an observation deck. I think it’s around $2 a person (or even free- I don’t remember) to go to the observation desk and get a whole view of Boston. Don’t forget to look up when you are in the lobby.
The North End- The north end is Boston’s “Little Italy”. You can pick any random restaurant and have one of the best meals you will ever have. I have never had a bad meal there. You feel like you’re back in the old country with the cobblestone roads, the wonderful Italian food smell in the air, all the Italians out sitting in their chairs. For dinner, seriously pick any restaurant, you will not have a bad meal. If you want amazing pizza go to Regina’s. There’s always a line out the door but it moves pretty fast. The longest I have ever waited in line was 15-20 minutes. That place is a well-oiled machine with the best pizza in town. Want to get an after dinner coffee or dessert? Go to Victoria’s Café. Delish! Want to bring some pastry home? Skip over Mike’s; it’s such a tourist spot. Go to Bova’s or Modern. They are just as good maybe even a little better.
Other things to see: Prudential Center, Cambridge (Harvard Square and MIT), The Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall/ Quincy Market, Paul Revere’s House, Boston Aquarium, Go to the harbor, Cheers (yes, as in the TV show), the farmer’s market.
