306 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210, USA
By Sunday, it was time for some serious day-drinking at Harpoon Brewery. For like 5 bucks, you go on a short tour with one of the cool guides through their brewing process. The facility is remarkably small. Highlights? The near-continuous jabs the...

257 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113, USA
There are two well-known pastry shops within about a block of each other in Boston's historic North End: Mike's Pastry and Modern Pastry. The two are engaged in a constant battle for supremacy, and any good Bostonian has a strong opinion in favor...

Chinatown, Boston, MA, USA
After spending a day walking around Boston--eating yum cha in Chinatown, going to the Institute of Contemporary Art, navigating through a pop-up street market--we decided we were a little peckish. As soon as we exited the arches designating...

465 Huntington Ave, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Sheltered from the city, this gem of a Japanese Garden is located on the Fenway side of the museum. An oasis within the urban environment, this exquisite, contemplative garden contains over 70 species of plants and 200 rocks and is, like the...

74 Union Park St, Boston, MA 02118, USA
One of the great draws of Boston is the fantastic neighborhoods. Each has a different flavor, and all are filled with small specialty stores. I love to support local shopkeepers, and the South End is a super place to do it. Boutique owners in this...

Charles St, Boston, MA, USA
Starting at the northeast corner of the Public Garden, and stretching to the end of Beacon Hill, Charles St. shopping offers a more boutiquey experience than its better known Newbury St. cousin. The feel is very European, with a mix of small...

540 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02210, USA
Award winning chef Jody Adams has brought the influence of her travels to this neighborhood restaurant. Located at the edge of The Rose Kennedy Greenway, and close to the harbor, this groundbreaking LEED Gold building is a visual delight. Small...

Charles River Esplanade, Boston, MA, USA
When people bring out their folding adirondack chairs and fishing rods to the Charles River Esplanade, you know it’s spring, finally. And then you see rows and rows of cherry blossom trees that line up the river, and wish it was always springtime...

4 S Market St, Boston, MA 02109, USA
Named after Mayor Josiah Quincy, Quincy Market was designed as an extension to Faneuil Hall in 1824 by architect Alexander Parris in the Greek Revival style to house meat and produce merchants. Today the building contains a variety of food vendors...

If you come to Sportello for a quick meal you'll undoubtedly linger over a glass of wine. Hand-selected to compliment each dish, their wine list is artisan-focused and reasonably priced. What's more, the modern space is warmed by their Italian...

4 Charles St, Boston, MA 02116, USA
During an ordinary walk to the gym on a grey afternoon I passed a Colonial character. He did not beg for attention in any way, he simply sauntered along with traffic.

343 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116, USA
Boston has one of the most successful bike sharing programs in the country. With over 100 solar powered stations and 1000 bikes available, the Hubway system makes it easy to ride around the city. 24hr and 3 day passes are available for only $5 and...

Boston Harbor, Boston, MA, USA
During the Boston Harborfest this summer, tall ships entered Boston Harbor from all over the world. They were decorated with flags, and had perfectly immaculate "swabbed decks". The best part of the festival, for me, was being able to speak--with...

52 Brattle St, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Located in the heart of Harvard Square, {additional location in Boston proper} this inviting cafe is guaranteed to take the chill off winter. The mulled cider is wonderful, but drinking chocolate, especially the dark variety, is a rich, decadent...
