Boston is a city that is rich with so much history. From the Paul Revere House to summer nights at the Hatch Shell, I always find a reason to fall in love with my city. Here are my top 5 to hang in Boston:
Faneuil Hall Marketplace located in Downtown Boston, Faneuil Hall Marketplace has been dubbed “The Cradle of Liberty.” There at least 70 shops, restaurants, nightlife spots, and historical affects in this area. I come here at least 3 times a week. Whether I’m in the mood to grab some calamari or I want to snap a few pics for my blog, Faneuil Hall is a great place.
4 S Market St
Monday-Thursday 10am-7pm, Friday and Saturday- 10am-9pm, Sunday- 12pm-6pm
Frost Ice Loft is a relatively new favorite spot of mine. Living in New England, you get used to frigid temperatures but never I really found a way to enjoy myself in the freezing cold until I came here. Just a few steps away from Faneuil Hall, it’s the only indoor bar furnished entirely of ice. Typically there is a DJ and some of the best cocktails that I’ve ever tasted. I brought my cousins from Haiti to Frost Ice Loft and at first they didn’t want to go in but 1 hour later, I couldn’t get them out! They loved it. Insulated capes and gloves are provided with admission.
200 State Street North Building, 3rd floor
Monday- Thursday 12:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Friday & Saturday 12:00 pm – 10:00 pm, Sunday 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Boston Public Market is actually one of Boston’s latest additions to our city’s landscape. The Boston Public Market is an indoor, year round marketplace for locally sourced groceries and specialty agricultural products, where residents and visitors can find fresh, seasonal, locally-sourced food from Massachusetts and New England. Boston Public Market has almost every type of food you think of. From apple cider donuts to large cuts of uncured bacon this is my new hiding spot. It’s not like your typical market, there’s a huge interactive tablet on the wall, space for relaxing, play area for kids, and cooking classes in the rear of the market.
100 Hanover Street at Haymarket Station
Wednesday – Sunday 8:00am – 8:00pm
Rose Kennedy Greenway is a public park located in the North End. The Greenway is comprised of sunny lawns, swinging benches, fountains, and even a carousel. This is the perfect place to go on a date, read, have a picnic, or even bask in the sun. I frequent the Greenway on my lunch breaks because it’s the perfect escape from reality. Plus, the swinging benches always get me!
185 Kneeland Street
The Blackstone Block is another one of Boston’s historic places. I am huge Harry Potter fanatic and I often find myself coming here because it reminds me of Diagon Alley. Built around Mid-17th Century, The Blackstone Block has always been a part of the central marketplace surrounding Faneuil Hall. My favorite oyster spot, Union Oyster House is right in the center of Blackstone Block. Also, the Green Dragon Tavern is my hidden jewel. In college, this alley was EVERYTHING!
