Escape to Boston for the Weekend

Escape to Boston for the Weekend
Destination(s): Boston

Day 1:Boston is a great city and small enough to get around by foot. The public transportation system known to locals as “The T” can easily take you from one end of the city to the other quickly and easily. For a weekend getaway to Beantown, grab a cup of coffee and start your first day of adventure off with a stroll through the beautiful Public Garden. In the warmer months, don’t miss a ride on the famous Swan Boats, a favorite of both kids and adults. Adjacent to the Public Garden is the Boston Common, the country’s oldest park. A visit to Boston would not be complete without a walk along the three-mile Freedom Trail. What makes the walk so special is that you can do it at your leisure, stopping along the way to catch some sights or take a break for lunch. Just follow the red painted bricks that will take you by 16 national historic sites, including churches, meeting houses and burial grounds. If you stay continuously on the trail, it should take a few hours to complete. Once you have finished, make your way over to Cheers and grab some lunch on a barstool where Norm used to sit on the famous TV show. Head back to your hotel room just up the street at the Beacon Hill Hotel, relax and take a shower. The hotel has a cozy restaurant which is great for a light bite before a night on the town. Walk over to Park Street train station and jump on the Green Line to Symphony T Station. Handel’s Messiah is playing tonight at Symphony Hall, home to the Boston Pops. When the show is over, take the T back to the hotel and get a good night sleep for tomorrow’s adventures. Day 2:Grab a cup of coffee at the hotel and head over to the train station again. Take the Green Line to the Prudential stop and head over to the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory. You won’t believe the 360 degree views that can be found from this location. You’ll be able to see from Fenway Park all the way to Cambridge and beyond. Make your way past Boylston Street and up Lansdowne Street to the Boston Beer Works for lunch. Don’t miss their blueberry ale with floating blueberries and the sour cream and chive French fries but be sure to arrive early as this place gets “wicked” crowded before a Red Sox game. Stroll down Yawkey Way and visit Big League Tours for a behind the scenes tour of Fenway Park, the perfect start to a game. Finish up the day with a game at Fenway Park (Green Monster seats maybe?) and be sure to indulge in a steamed Fenway frank hotdog for the ultimate experience.Day 3:It’s your final day in the city so be sure to take it all in. From the hotel, you can walk through Government Center and over to Faneuil Hall. Also known as Quincy Marketplace, the shopping center is loaded with shops, restaurants and snacks. Head over to Durgin Park for lunch (Boston baked beans and Indian pudding are a must), the famed restaurant where the servers have attitudes! A visit to Boston would be incomplete without a stop at an Irish pub so head over to the Green Dragon Tavern for a quick pint before finishing up the day at Faneuil Hall. Located just a few steps from the marketplace is the North End, home to some of the best Italian food in the country. Relax with a cigar and cognac at Stanza dei Sigari on Hanover Street and end the trip with a slice of pie from Pizzeria Regina. read more about Escape to Boston for the Weekend... Read More
