I recently went to Boston for a quick, weekend getaway. This is my second time to Boston, and I always have so much fun when I’m there. Below I am recapping my fall weekend in Boston.
FALL WEEKEND IN BOSTON:
WHERE TO STAY
We stayed at the AC Marriott Downtown! While I loved this hotel, I would highly recommend staying in another part of town. We chose this location to save $$$, but we basically had to Uber everywhere. So in the end, I would’ve preferred to spend more money to stay in Beacon Hill or on the North End and Uber less.
WHERE TO EAT/DRINK
Tatte Bakery and Cafe – This is where I go for breakfast everyday when I’m in Boston! The coffee is incredible. I highly recommend the breakfast sandwich (add arugula)… SO GOOD. Also, the pastries are delicious. You just can’t go wrong at Tatte’s!!
Caffe Vittoria – *CASH ONLY* The cutest little cafe in the North End. We got espresso martinis, and they were delicious!
The Barking Crab – This is a seafood restaurant right along the water. It’s super casual, and a great spot to get a lobster roll!
Florence Cafe – All I want when I go to Boston is some bomb Italian food! We found Florence Cafe while walking around in the North End, and it was DELICIOUS! I highly recommend checking this place out, but try to make reservations!
Mike’s Pastry – So many people recommended a visit to Mike’s Pastry. We tried to go in person 3 different times, and the line was down the block! So instead we ordered on Uber Eats 😂 The chocolate mousse cannoli was my favorite!
Sons of Boston – This is a little bar near the North End, but I went twice over the weekend for this one beer: UFO Maine Blueberry. OMGEE OBSESSED!!!
WHERE TO ADVENTURE
Honey Pot Hill Orchards – What is fall without visiting an apple orchard? This orchard is about 45 minutes outside of Boston, but it’s 100% worth the drive! You can Uber or rent a car to get there. Entry to the orchard is cash only, but they have an ATM. They have a ton of different apples to pick from! The main draw for me are the apple cider donuts. HOLY MOLY Y’ALL!!!! They. Are. Delicious!!!! Best donuts I’ve ever eaten.
Beacon Hill – This area is everything I expected of Boston! Lots of shopping, cobblestone streets, and brownstones. Definitely head to Acorn St. to get an iconic Boston picture.
Fenway Park – If you’re a baseball fan, I highly recommend visiting Fenway! It’s so cool to see this iconic stadium in person. They have several bars in the area (I recommend Bleacher Bar – there’s a window looking into the park).
Salem – We didn’t head to Salem this trip, but the fall season is the perfect time to visit Salem! It’s a short train ride away and perfect for a day trip.
