How to Do A Boston Weekend Like A Boss

Boston, Massachusetts is the heart of New England.

With a population of over 7 million people, it’s a bustling city with a little something for everyone.

Famous for its chowder, accent, and champion sporting teams, Boston is a fantastic place to visit at any time of the year!

Where to Stay:

The Copley Square Hotel, built in 1891, is the city’s second-oldest hotel!

The ultra-luxurious accommodation features spacious rooms and unbeatable views of historic Boston.

Located conveniently in Copley Square, you have quick walking-access to shopping centers, the gardens, and many delicious restaurants!

Another incredible place to stay is the Liberty Hotel.

This grandeur building actually has a rich history behind it, as it used to be the Charles Street Jail.

This prison was established in 1851 and operated for 120 years.

The 298 jail cells have been renovated into comfortable suites, but decorated with authentic bars on the windows!

A blend of history and high-style elegance, this hotel is the quintessential Boston experience.

In addition to Copley Square and Liberty Hotel, there are hundreds of hotels within the city that fit all budgets, as well as countless airbnbs!

Where to Eat:

If you’re looking for award winning entrees, head over to Fox & The Knife for a fine dining experience.

The refined Italian restaurant, located in South Boston, is inspired by Modena, Italy.

Reservations are tough to get though, so plan in advance.

Another delicious but more affordable restaurant in the area is Daedalus, a modern American-styled rooftop bar.

The outdoor seating offers a relaxed atmosphere for any casual night out on the town.

Be careful when looking at their online menu though, as it changes almost weekly!

Where to Drink:

If you’re in need of a quick coffee break, head over to Tatte Bakery.

This aesthetically pleasing, Boston-based bakery is committed to quality latte’s within a homey, pleasant atmosphere.

Renowned for its pastries, Tatte has become a beloved location for Bostonians and tourists alike.

You cannot visit Boston without having a beer or a cocktail at the infamous bar, Cheers.

Known for its’ 1980’s sitcom, the bar is always full of friendly customers and live music.

The menu is themed with meals based on the show’s characters, and you’ll get to take home a souvenir glass!

Things to Do:

There's so much to do in Boston, you can never be bored.

If you're looking for a historical tour check out the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, where the night of Dec. 16th 1773 is played out everyday by actors, and you’ll be a participating member!

Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., tours will lead you through the historical site and you’ll end up in Abigail’s Tea Room, as well as the gift shop.

Located in the Back Bay area of Boston, Newbury Street is where you’ll shop till you drop (or at least until your bank account does).

High-end fashion to consignment shops, incredible restaurants to one-stop coffee shops, you can find it all on Newbury!

And of course, the sporting events.

The New England Patriots, the Red Sox, the Celtics, and the Bruins are decorated in hundreds of championships and awards.

Try to catch a game at Gillette Stadium or Fenway Park... and grab a Fenway Frank!
