Hi all! The hubs and I are going to Boston for a belated honeymoon this summer. I’d love suggestions on things to do, must sees, places to stay, places to avoid, restaurants, and anything else you can think of! We both love history, we’re foodies, and we like getting out and trying new things.
Thank you! ☺️

    We go up to Boston and Maine every fall. Go to the Boston aquarium, do the Paul Revere trail, take the ferry and spend a day in Salem, tons of history and tours and great places to eat, if you have time drive up to Portland Maine for a day. The lobster comes in off the boat and right to your plate. You could even catch it yourself on a tour and they’ll cook it for you!

    Congratulations! So much to do in Boston. Here's a few I recommend:

    Duck Boat Tour - very entertaining

    Fanieul Hall - always live performances going on, shopping/browsing, plenty of eating options

    Aquarium - besides the exhibits there are plenty of choices of on water adventures - whale watches, speed boat activities etc...

    Boston Museum of Science - perfect for high temp or rainy day

    Back Bay/ Copley Place - shopping... historical libraries/churches

    Freedom Trail - guided tour or do it on your own

    Like Art? - Museum of Fine Art or Elizabeth Gardner Museum

    North End - best authentic Italian food eva... Mike's Pastry is a must.. Paul Revere house is another site in this area

    Our state has been slow to reopen.. but under normal circumstances there are always festivals going on throughout the city...

    Getting around the city does not require a car/ plenty of public transportation options. Have a geat time!

    Agree with this post. I'm from a town about an hour away. Quincy Market is a must, aka Faneuil Hall, (The bakers and fresh fruit smoothies are amazing!!) The aquarium has incredible whale watches and the largest shark and ray touch tank on the east coast. The museum of science is one of the venues I'm considering because it's an incredible all day adventure and the lightning shows take my breath away. I love doing the Freedom Trail if you enjoy history, but the Duck Boats are a fun and silly option as well.
    For the museum of science, you'll want your own car just because of how it is situated and it has its own parking lot. For Faneuil Hall and the Aquarium you can park at a nearby parking garage but I actually recommend trying the subway. It's easy to navigate and puts you really close to the places you want to go. I use the subway and trains because Boston driving can be pretty horrendous.

    Agreed with the PPs list of activities, just a few to add Smiley smile Then for most restaurants in the Boston area, make sure you have a reservation. I'm not sure how many of these are open now, but hopefully will be by this summer!

    Harvard Museum - If you find yourself in Cambridge (lots of great food here as well), stop by the museum to look at the Blaschka Glass flowers. They are crazy realistic models of plants and flowers made out of glass that no one has figured out how to replicate yet.

    Lawn on D - Cute park in the Seaport district that has great photo ops with the glowing swings.

    Arnold Arboretum - Gorgeous park Smiley smile

    Courtyard Tea Room at Boston Public Library - My favorite and most unique high tea in Boston in the in courtyard of the library

    Ruka - A fantastic Japanese Peruvian restaurant, beautiful interior as well.

    O Ya- This is a very pricy restaurant, but certainly worth the splurge if possible. The best sushi/omakase and great service especially if you can get seated at the sushi chef counter. PABU is also a great omakase option and more affordable than O Ya.

    Oleana - This is in Cambridge, but has the most amazing Mediterranean restaurant the cutest outdoor seating. In order to get that patio seating, you need to line up early, but it's definitely worth the wait.

    Time Out Market - For a quick foodie tour around Boston, I highly recommend this. Think of it as a food court with populated with pop-up's of some of the top restaurants in Boston and more experimental food options (O Ya, Union Square Donuts, Mamaleh, the list goes on). There's also a beer garden right outside of Time Out Market.

    Thank you for the recommendation! We definitely want to make our way to Salem. Maine is on the bucket list so maybe we’ll make that happen too!

    Go to a Boston Bruins game!
    Also you must go to the Boston Museum of science! It is an all day event there and you may not even get through all of it that’s how large it is. They also have a planetarium!
    You can also check out the Museum of fine arts! This too is also an all day event and you may not even see everything because it’s so large!

    Strega on the water is an awesome restaurant, but as far as Best Food, definitely check out the north end!! Great Italian food! Also, you must check out Mike’s pastry! They have the best cannolis!

    So much history there; it's everywhere you look! As a westerner, I especially loved visiting a couple of 200+ year old graveyards. We just don't really have that in California. I also recommend heading to Concord for the North Bridge site (of Lexington & Concord battle fame), Walden Pond, and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House. Smiley heart

    Tour Fenway Park -- it's the oldest continually operating ballpark in the country, and try to time it so you can attend a game as well (if things are "back to normal" by the time you visit). Sam Adams Brewery offers really interesting tours. Depending on how long you'll be there and what all you want to do, you can make a day trip to Newport RI and tour the mansions. Enjoy!

    I live in the North End and it’s definitely a must for places to eat. One of the cool things related to COVID is Hanover St (main restaurant street in north end) turns into this very European vibe with all of the outdoor dining they’ve allowed due to COVID and I know that will be taking place again this year! Happy honeymooning!

    I live in Boston! I agree with all the expert advice on places. Catch a whale watch if you haven’t had that experience yet. Fanieul Hall definitely not back to pre pandemic splendor yet. Many restaurants just getting up and running. The street vendors are what made it fun and until we get back to full tourism they probably won’t be out. Have a great time! The Arnold Arboretum is also beautiful in the summer. Definitely hot up the North Shore area of Rockport..

    I’m from the Boston area. I agree with the posters above. Not sure if it’s currently open but Lolita is literally the best place to go for margaritas. I’ve never had their food but have only heard good things. They have two locations in the city and the vibe of them both is really really cool!

    I definitely second this! Fenway is such a cool stadium and you can sit on top of the infamous green monster! I also recommend eating at Yankee Lobster if you have time and trying one of the lobster rolls or the clam chowder 😍
