BOSTON!!! I’ve been dying to visit this city for years, and I am so glad I finally got the chance (especially in the fall). I’m going to tell you how I got the maximum Boston experience in 48 hours. Scroll down to read my Boston Travel Guide:

Boston Travel Guide


I was only able to be in Boston for 48 hours, so I wanted to make sure I experienced as much as possible! First, I started with booking the flight. I ended up getting a direct flight from Houston to Boston via jetBlue. Overall, the traveling experience with jetBlue was PHENOMENAL (and can we talk about that legroom???!!). I would highly recommend this airline for any of your upcoming travels.

Next, I began looking for places to stay. Y’all………… Boston in October AIN’T CHEAP! Haha… but seriously, most (decent) hotels near downtown Boston cost between $200-$300/night (CRAZY!). So next I started to look at Airbnb. I HIT THE JACKPOT! I found an amazing rental in the most ideal location. All of the spots I wanted to visit were only a short Uber ride away. The Airbnb was located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. Click the below picture for the Airbnb link!

Next, lets talk about must-visit attractions!

Honey Pot Hill Orchard

  • Hands-down my favorite thing I did on my trip was visit Honey Pot Hill Orchards. We don’t have orchards in the south, so this was definitely a treat! I looooove apples, but there is truly nothing better than eating an apple straight from a tree! I was in heaven! They also had pear trees! If you’re visiting during a different time of year, I still recommend checking this place out! They have seasonal fruit all year long! It’s about 40 minutes from Boston.
    • price: $20 for a small bag + $2/person for the hayride

  • While you’re at Honey Pot, you NEED TO try the apple cider donuts. Talk about melt-in-your-mouth amazingness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ll seriously dream about these donuts haha!


  • Salem is a must-visit town, especially in October (I mean they have witches, costumes, ghost tours, and more!!!!). I took the train from the North End station to Salem. The train ride only took 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can take a boat, but this is more expensive and takes longer. If you choose the train, I recommend downloading the MBTA mTicket app on your phone to purchase your ticket.
    • price: round trip train tickets were only $16!

  • The train station in Salem is in walking distance to the town square. If you’re visiting Salem, I definitely recommend signing up for a tour! This ensures you get a detailed description of this historical town.
    • I booked the 2-Hour Salem History Walking Tour, and I loved the tour guide, Kenneth. He had such a deep knowledge of Salem, and I learned SO MUCH! He was still able to make the tour fun too! Make sure you wear comfy shoes!

Fenway Park

  • Unfortunately, the regular season of baseball was over when I visited, but I still made sure to stop by Fenway Park (i.e. the oldest baseball stadium in the country). If you are a baseball fan, it’s definitely worth a trip. They also offer tours, if you’re interested!

Newbury Street

  • Now who doesn’t love shopping? Newbury Street is the place to do some damage! They have everryyyyyythingggg you could ever want (I’m not exaggerating)!

Boston Common/Garden

  • This area is SO PRETTY! It seriously gave me Central Park vibes. If you’re looking to take a stroll through Boston, this is the place to do it!

What I didn’t get to do:

  • There are two places that I missed out on because I didn’t have time: Harvard and The Freedom Trail. I’ll save these for my next trip!


The food in Boston was unreal! There are truly so many options, but I would highly recommend the following:

  • Breakfast:
    • The Friendly Toast
    • Tatte Bakery and Cafe

The Friendly Toast – Barbacoa Benny (this was UNREAL)

Tatte Bakery & Cafe – Croissant Sandwich (SOOOO GOOD)
  • Dinner:
    • The Barking Crab – I ordered New England clam chowder and the scallops entree (SO GOOD)
    • Giacomo’s – (CASH ONLY) I ordered chicken parm and tiramisu

The portions at Giacomo’s were INSANE. This was authentic Italian!
  • Drinks:
    • Bleacher Bar – has a window looking into Fenway Park! Such a good way to see Fenway without actually having to pay for a tour
    • Lookout Rooftop & Bar – this is on the roof of the Envoy Hotel and gives the most incredible view of Boston! Don’t worry about the cooler temps…. they have many space heaters to keep you warm!

Overall, I had THE BEST time in Boston. I truly loved all of the places discussed above. What are your favorite places in/near Boston? Do you have a trip to Boston coming up?
