Everything You Must See in Boston

A Weekend in Boston

A Weekend in Boston

Boston, Massachusetts is a beautiful city that cannot be missed when visiting the East Coast of the United States. This quaint U.S. city is located in New England and is filled with charming neighborhoods, amazing restaurants, fun bars, beautiful parks and a lot of history. (It is also a great city with a lot of Irish influence, reminding me of my time in Ireland.)

A Weekend in Boston

During fall 2017, my cousin Alexie and I visited Boston for a well-needed girls’ weekend and we ended up having the time of our lives. In addition, visiting New England during autumn was definitely a beautiful site to see since the colors of fall foliage were in full swing. (If you are looking for a great fall getaway, you cannot do wrong with New England.)

In this blog post, discover the best things to do during a weekend getaway in Boston.

Getting to Boston:

A Weekend in Boston

Since I am from the New York City area, I did a mini road trip to Boston. From the New York City area, it takes around 3.5 hours to get to Boston, depending on traffic. From Philadelphia, it takes 5 hours to get to Boston and from Washington D.C., it takes over 7 hours to get to “Beantown”. If you decide to drive to Boston and either don’t want to put miles on your car or even if you do not have a car of your own, it is best to rent one.

If you are not from the Northeast of the United States, it is best to book a flight through Skyscanner into Boston Logan International Airport.

Where to Stay in Boston:

A Weekend in Boston

Thanks to Crawford Concierge by SitInMySeats Travel, the hotel that my cousin and I stayed in was EPIC! The Liberty Hotel is located in Beacon Hill, which was my favorite area in the city. Before it became a luxury hotel, The Liberty Hotel was the Charles Street Jail. The jail was completed in 1851 and operated for over 120 years.

A Weekend in Boston

From 1851 through 1973, the jail housed some of Boston’s most notorious criminals. The prisoners later revolted because of poor living conditions and the jail ended up being declared unfit as it violated their constitutional rights. On Memorial Day weekend in 1990, the last prisoners were moved to the new Suffolk County Jail.

A Weekend in Boston

In the early 2000s, the old jail was remodeled into a beautiful and innovative hotel. Apart from renovating the building, the jail’s granite exterior and expansive interiors remained unchanged. The jail cells were wrought-iron gates featured within the hotel lobby, restaurant and bar and are examples of preservation. It was so cool staying in an old jail! Plus, the place was rocking with millennials having fun at happy hour and travelers from all over the globe enjoying Boston’s historical culture. When I arrived on a Friday night, I was exhausted because that was when I was still working a corporate job, but once I entered into the hotel, my energy soared. There was so much excitement going on around me that I couldn’t wait to unpack in my hotel room and join in on the fun!

In addition to The Liberty Hotel, you could find numerous hotels to suit your budget in Boston. There is also a variety of Airbnb options as well in this great city!

Food and Entertainment in The Liberty Hotel:

A Weekend in Boston

Liberty Bar: Before we enjoyed our first night, we had to eat dinner, so my cousin and I shared an amazing burrata, truffle and arugula pizza at Liberty Bar. (It was amazing!) This bar is a great place to casually grab food and drinks. It is also the perfect happy hour spot.

A Weekend in Boston

Alibi: For some late night dancing and fun, my cousin and I went to Alibi, which is a great place to dance the night away. Set in the old “drunk tank” of the jail, Alibi features original brick cell walls. There are also celebrity mug shots scattered along the walls of the bar. Some of the celebrities we saw were Jay-Z, Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber and Matthew McConaughey. These celebrities weren’t inmates in this specific jail, but it was interesting to see their mug shots. We had such a blast dancing and meeting new people at Alibi.

Clink: During a girls’ weekend, it is obligatory to get brunch. Since The Liberty Hotel had so many great places within it, we decided to have brunch at a cool restaurant called Clink. The restaurant features restored jail details and architecture, but have big windows that let the sunlight shine in. I enjoyed one of the best brioche French toast dishes with Canadian maple syrup and Vermont maple sausage on the side. My cousin had the smoked chicken quesadilla. Even though I am not a Bloody Mary fan, I thought it was awesome that the restaurant had a DIY bar to make your own! Alexie took advantage of it while I had a mimosa.

In addition to the above, The Liberty Hotel also has another fine dining restaurant called Scampo, an outdoor venue called The Yard, an upscale bar called Catwalk and they also have great room service.

Where to Eat and Drink in Boston:

A Weekend in Boston

Pauli’s: Since we were in New England, it was only right that my cousin and I get a lobster roll. Prior to going to Boston, I was recommended a delicious lobster roll joint in the North End area called Pauli’s. You can choose between a hot and buttery lobster roll (Connecticut roll) or a cold mayo roll (Maine roll). I got the Connecticut roll and Alexie got the Maine roll. In addition to lobster, you can also get Italian sandwiches, salads, burgers, wraps and more! Pauli’s is a great place, but it gets crowded and there isn’t much seating room.

Dolce Vita Ristorante: Later in the evening, we decided that we wanted to enjoy Italian food since Boston has a renowned “Little Italy” area. Located in the Faneuil Hall district are numerous Italian restaurants, bakeries and cafés to enjoy a delicious meal or treat. I was recommended to check out Dolce Vita Ristorante on Hanover Street. The owner, Franco Graceffa, was super friendly and welcoming as we stepped into his restaurant. The restaurant is spacious with a lot of seating and there is even a wine bar area if you want to enjoy antipasti or light appetizers. For my main meal, I savored fettuccine with jumbo shrimp and scallops in a white wine tomato sauce with fresh sun dried tomatoes. Alexie had a delicious gnocchi dish in a vodka sauce.

A Weekend in Boston

Drink: Located in the Fort Point area is a craft cocktail bar called Drink that blends classic cocktails of the prohibition era with modern artisanal ingredients. A friend who goes to Boston quite often recommended this great speakeasy to me! Drink is a hotspot in Boston, so there was a line to get into the bar area. We only had to wait 15 minutes and once we got in, I fell in love with the atmosphere. It was the perfect place to enjoy a drink crafted just for you! That’s right, the bartenders at Drink are pros at making the best craft cocktails based on your preferences. After you find a seat, a bartender will make his or her way over to you and ask you what flavors you like in a cocktail. Since I like my cocktails more sweet than strong, I told our bartender that I like anything maple syrup-related, molasses and rum. In addition, Alexie loves spices, so he made the perfect drink for both of us. I couldn’t recommend this place more!

Mike’s Pastry: Located in Boston’s North End, Mike’s Pastry was founded in 1946. Owner Michael Mercogliano created a one-of-a-kind cannoli that keeps locals and tourists coming back for more. It is at this amazing pastry shop where you could get cannoli and pastries, Italian cookies, pies, cakes and gelato. It is a MUST if you are visiting Boston.

Tip Tap Room: Of course, brunch calls for every morning ritual on a girls’ trip. Located right near The Liberty Hotel is Tip Tap Room. This great American bar and restaurant features an open space and delicious food and drinks. Both Alexie and I enjoyed the smoked salmon omelet with their delicious coffee. I had a mimosa along with that. It was delicious!

Top Things to do in Boston:

A Weekend in Boston

Get Lost in Beacon Hill:

A Weekend in Boston

A trip to Boston wouldn’t be complete without getting lost in Beacon Hill, the city’s most charming area. Featuring beautiful Federal-style houses, Beacon Hill is known for its narrow, gas lit streets and brick sidewalks. It is regarded as one of the most desirable and expensive neighborhoods in Boston.

A Weekend in Boston

We were lucky because the weather wasn’t as cold as we expected it to be, but it was still a little chilly, so we stopped in a cute coffee shop called Peet’s Coffee to pick up a nice warm drink.

A Weekend in Boston

As we continued to wander around Beacon Hill, we stopped at another gem called Rouvalis Flowers. This welcoming corner shop offers a warm and welcoming feeling right when you walk in. The smell of fresh flowers and pines (for the season) filled the air! There were also a variety of different home good pieces, ornaments, coffee mugs and more. It was lovely!

Walk through Boston Public Garden and Boston Common:

A Weekend in Boston

Two great places to walk around in the city are the Boston Public Garden and the Boston Common. The Boston Common is a 50-acre urban park that hosted the British troops during the American Revolution. The Boston Public Garden, on the other hand, has different walking paths, beautiful Spanish moss trees, adorable animals and a pretty bridge that goes over a little pond. They are both great places to walk around and see some nature within the city.

Make a Visit to the Cheers Bar:

A Weekend in Boston

Right across the street from the Public Garden is the iconic Cheers Bar from the Nick At Nite sitcom, Cheers! I used to always watch Cheers at night when I was in elementary school, so of course the bar was on my bucket list and I thought it was funny that we just stumbled upon it un-expectantly rather than searching the entire city for it.

A Weekend in Boston

The Cheers Bar is actually bigger than what you could imagine. There are three rooms in the place: the original bar where they shot the sitcom, a restaurant area and another bar that overlooks the park. There are several gift shops in the bar and it is even attached to a beautiful hotel! My cousin and I enjoyed a beer in Cheers’ famous glass mugs.

Visit the Paul Revere House:

A Weekend in Boston

If you are big history person, than you will totally love Boston! Since my cousin and I were only in Boston for a weekend, we didn’t have the time to see all of the historical sites. One place you must see is the Paul Revere House. Built in 1680, this colonial building was home to the American patriot Paul Revere during the American Revolution.

Shop Your Way through Newbury Street:

A Weekend in Boston

If you are a big shopper, than you definitely have to head to Newbury Street, which is located in the Back Bay area of Boston. It is on Newbury Street where you could find fashion stores, consignment shops, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, beauty salons, bars, art galleries, tourism offices and so much more!

Stroll around Boston Harbor:

Known as the site of the Boston Tea Party, Boston Harbor is a peaceful place to stroll around and admire the beauty of the city. The Boston Tea Party took place on December 16, 1773 when members of the Sons of Liberty dumped crates of tea into the Boston Harbor as a protest against the Tea Act and its provisions for taxation of tea. Nowadays, it is home to the Port of Boston, which is a major shipping facility in the Northeast.

Attend a Sporting Event:

Whether you’re visiting Boston in fall, when the New England Patriots are playing or in the spring, when the Boston Red Sox play, I highly recommend attending a sporting event because the spirit in the city is unreal. Fenway Park (where the Red Sox play) is a great place to visit year round since concerts are also held there.

Enjoy an Afternoon at a Brewery:

A Weekend in Boston

Samuel Adams Brewery: Known as Boston’s most famous lager, Samuel Adams is a must-visit when you’re in the city. Please note though that the brewery is closed on Sundays. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to go since we didn’t know that originally. Each year, beer enthusiasts at Sam Adams travel to Germany to select the world’s best heirloom aroma hops for their lager.

Harpoon Brewery: Since Sam Adams was closed, we made our way to Harpoon Brewery, located in South Boston on the Boston Main Channel. Harpoon Brewery is a lively and fun bier hall that features delicious beers straight from the source along with German and American food. My cousin and I got the UFO flight, which consisted of coffee, vanilla bean and fruity-flavored beers. We also enjoyed the views of the water from the brewery.


A Weekend in Boston

I hope you all enjoyed reading about my cousin’s girls’ weekend in Boston, Massachusetts. If you have any questions about my time in Boston, please email me at info@browneyedflowerchild.com.
