My Favorite Spots in Boston

Boston is beautiful. Exploring this historical city never gets old. Here are some of my favorite spots.

Boston Public Garden

Known for the iconic Swan Boats, the Boston Public Garden is one of my very favoite spots in the city. It’s a garden on the verge of the city and it is the perfect mix between the two. It may not be very big, but it is truly worth the view.

Boston Public Library

The courtyard at the Boston Public Library is breathtaking. The whole library is beatiful, but there is a special place in my heart for sitting in this courtyard to read or catch up on work.

Beacon Hill

The Beacon Hill neighborhood is full of beautiful houses and cobblestone streets. Beacon Street itself, is one of the most expensive streets to live on in the city. When I grow up I want to live on Beacon Street with a house on the Cape, is that too much to ask?

The North End and the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Parks

The North End is one of the oldest parts of the city and definitely has the best food. The park was my go-to spot to meet my friends for a cannoli’s, and the view isn’t too bad either.

 

 

 

Newbury Street

Known as the Rodeo Drive of Boston, but you can actually afford some things. This beautiful street is lined with shops, boutiques and resturaunts for the best of Boston. The outdoor restaurant patios are perfect for the summer when you spend your time walking up and down the street.

The Harbor and the Charles

No matter which side you’re on, the waterfront views in Boston are spectacular. One of the best ways to take in the skyline is a Sunset Cruise on the Harbor or the Carles River.

 

 

 

The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular

Although this is an event not a place, it was still one of my favorite experiences in Boston. Starting the day at noon, eating lots of food, hanging with friends and waiting until the show started at 8 p.m. was an unforgetable experience. The show itself was amazing, with performances from Andy Grammer, Leslie Odom Jr. (from Hamilton), and of course the Boston Pops. There is no better way (or place) to celebrat the 4th of July.
