Recently I teamed up with All For Color to create a Boston City Guide for them! I knew I couldn’t be selfish and had to share it with you guys too!! If you want to see their blog post click here! Another amazing blogger teamed up with me and you can find her’s there too! Now, onto the post..
Boston is one of the most diverse cities in the world. I’ve been fortunate to live locally my whole life. Follow this Boston city guide and make the most out of your next trip! Pro-Tip: Don’t forget to bring your sneakers, Boston is a walking city!
The number one shopping destination is Newbury St. Located centrally next to the Boston Common it spans eight blocks. The best shopping spots lie here with a mix of high and low. Stop at the new Chanel store, maybe visit Valentino, then work your way down to H&M, Zara, and more. Some of the best consignment stores are there too. Pro-tip for the big vintage hunters, hop on the green line to Allston for some of the best vintage shopping there is! Don’t forget to hop one street over to Boylston St and go into the Prudential Mall. The mall is filled with great new stores like Artizia and Under Armour. You’ll have no problem pleasing everyone! Pro-Tip: Once you’re in the Prudential, head on up to Top Of The Hub for one of the best views in Boston!
As the city of champions, Bostonians take their sports teams very seriously. Get off the Green Line at Kenmore and walk on over to Fenway Park for a tour of America’s Oldest Ballpark. If you’re in season, I recommend catching a game. Pro-Tip: sit in the bleacher section of a very Boston Red Sox type of experience, plus maybe you’ll catch a ball! Don’t forget, the TD Garden is just a trolley ride away if you’re looking to see the Celtic’s or Bruin’s play. When you’re in Boston, you can’t go wrong with any team.
Besides being all about our sports. Bostonians love history. Hey, it all started here! If you’re in the North End, a very quaint and historic place itself. Check out the Old North Church where Paul Revere lit the two lanterns. Hop on a Trolley Tour or walk the Freedom Trail. Pro-tip, Paul Revere house is along the trail so be sure to stop there! Another beautiful sight is America’s Oldest University, Harvard. It’s located just off the Red Line Stop named after it. While you’re at it, be sure to check out the newly renovated Boston Public Library, the perfect place to people watch!
Boston is blessed to have some amazing museums in it’s realm. The Museum of Science is one of my personal favorites. An entire day can easily be spent wandering through all of the interactive exhibits. The Museum of Fine Arts and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum are constantly featuring new artists and exhibits. Even if you’ve been before, it is worth a trip back! Pro-Tip: Visit the courtyard garden at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum for picture perfect scenery (and coveted Instagram spot). Also, don’t forget to just look around, the streets of Boston make for a great photography day! The architecture is amazing.
There really is no shortage of yummy places to eat in Boston. In the mood for coffee or a cute cafe to stop at? Check out Tatte Bakery & Cafe. It’s a personal favorite of many locals and their multiple locations makes it a very convenient stop. Another must is Jugo’s or Juice Press for fresh juice, smoothie or acia bowl. Some of my favorite spots, perfect for either lunch or dinner are Row 34, Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar, Yvonnes, Sweet Cheeks Q, Oak Long Bar & Kitchen, and Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant. Pro-Tip: Go to Lincoln for their insane brunch instead. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
