Imagine getting a 6,000-pound wood stove into a food truck. Stoked did just that, and this persistence shines through in their pizzas. You'll find all the usual pizzas here along with daily specials and vegan options. The buffalo veggie is my...

When you've been called "the best coffee in the world" by the likes of NPR and the NY Times, you've got the bar set pretty high. Thinking Cup does justice to those beans, and is a really great spot to get your morning or afternoon fix. Their cafe...

I usually think of tea when it comes to Japan, but one visit to Ogawa changed my mind. Aside from the gorgeous latte art they are known for, this artisan coffee house from Kyoto is committed to the perfection of the beverage through sourcing,...

Boston is a great walking city, and there's no better way to get behind the scenes then with guides who love Boston. Committed, trained volunteers run the guided walking tours that cover everything from architecture, going green and neighborhoods...

One of the first things I like to find when visiting a new destination is a place to take a good walk. Winding through the city's waterfront neighborhoods, the design of the HarborWalk allows the public to connect with the cleaned and restored ...

A horrid thought, but this is the spot where that famous cry originated in 1775 at the Battle of Bunker Hill. If you dare, climb the 294 stairs of local granite, where you'll be rewarded at the top of the obelisk with a spectacular view of the...

Boston is celebrated for its seafood and the Barking Crab, located along the Fort Point Channel, is one the best paces to grab a lobster while experiencing the waterfront. Not a typical Boston seafood restaurant, The Barking Crab is "funky" casual...

A floating museum is certainly a bit out of the ordinary, and this walk back in history does not disappoint. Live actors, interactive exhibits of artifacts, and authentically restored tea ships will transport children as well as adults back to the...

The Emily Dickinson Museum includes both the Homestead property where Dickinson resided from her birth in 1830 and the Evergreens property where Dickinson's brother and sister-in-law lived. Dickinson wrote much of her poetry between 1858-1865 at...

One of my all-time favorite crabs, and I'm obliged to them for their contribution—the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy their deliciousness. Only available in appropriate season, and with only lemon, clarified butter and a little loving work...

I really like clever. With names like Storming of the Basil, Kale'n It and the Revolution, this food truck makes the grade. The Affectation was a home run with bacon, arugula, goat cheese and a fig reduction. Who says I don't eat meat anymore?...
