Planning Your Next Travel Adventure? Here’s Why Boston Is Worth Visiting
Visiting Boston is like visiting a small city but with all the perks and sights of a big one. The city has a very European feel which brims with history and is very manageable to visit on foot and explore the charming neighborhoods. Renew your love for train travel, catch a flight or seaplane to Beantown.
We stayed in Beacon Hill at The Liberty Hotel (a former prison!) on the Charles River across from Cambridge where we explored the tech history of Boston and Cambridge with the walking tour, Innovation Trail. On this outing, one goes face to face with breakthrough discoveries in medicine, science, entrepreneurship and technology and get a better understanding of Boston’s legacy of world-changing innovation.
In addition to sports, people in Boston care about their food. From classic New England seafood fresh off the boat, and urban food halls, to bars with style and attitude to boot. Have lunch at Little Whale in Boston’s Back Bay.
It is the city’s poshest neighborhood which is comprised largely of 19th– century brownstone residences converted to retail and restaurants. This seafood hot spot, nestled on Newbury Street near designer boutiques, and art galleries is an ode to the seaside raw bars and clam shacks of the New England coast .
See a show, but elevate your food experience first at Time Out Market. Boston’s Time Out Market, located in a former 1929 Sears distribution center is now a culinary destination. Situated in the heart of the buzzing Fenway neighborhood, the Industrial-chic venue spanning over 27,000 square feet offers a diversity of cuisines. From the top foodie trends, authentic dishes, to natural and healthy, this space encompasses the best eats, sips, and culture of Boston.
Explore Boston’s latest venue, MGM Music Hall at Fenway. This new addition to the Boston live music scene in the vibrant Fenway Kenmore area highlights a flexible theater which holds 5,000 guests, and positions itself as the premier mid-size indoor live music venue. Recently opened in the fall of 2022, the theater has multiple levels with various food, beverage, lounge areas and can be used for a general admission or seated show. It even has a roof deck with stunning views.
While visiting Boston, stroll the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, one of the top things to do while in Boston. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston played host to the Obama portraits traveling exhibit as well as home to more than 100 galleries.
Indulge in a leisurely lunch with waterfront views alongside Boston’s Lovejoy Wharf at Alcove. This warm, and trendsetting restaurant features a versatile mix of raw bar, European, and farm-to-table American fare, and an exciting beverage menu.
Take a boat tour up the Charles River, in Charles Riverboat Company Sightseeing Cruise. Sip and scope out views of the Boston skyline as well as the buildings on the campuses of MIT, Harvard and Boston University.
Finally, a visit to Boston wouldn’t be complete without catching a game. Boston is notorious for its passionate fans and although the Celtics lost in overtime it was a great game. Another tip: Pre-game is key. Start the night off “pregaming ” at Banners Kitchen & Tap, which is right outside TD North Garden. Minus a visit to perhaps a Vegas casino, there probably isn’t a better place to watch a game as the screens are huge and numerous.
Before you leave, sightsee around the charming and colorful Boston Garden and Boston Common, centrally located in the middle of the city and downtown, Faneuil Hall and the booming Seaport area and make sure to toast the end of your Boston journey at Trillium Brewery.
