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...

French toast with fresh strawberries—the picture from South End Buttery explains itself! Great brunch location. *Tip, they also have an amazing deli, so stop in to pack the perfect picnic. Self-described as "an eclectic combination of fresh...

Sure, Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market make up the most touristy part of Boston, complete with street performers, a light show, and the obligatory Yankee Candle store and Cheers restaurant; we nonetheless defy you to stay away. This part of the ...

The Trinity Church in Boston located in the back bay area. This is a historical landmark of America, worth a visit if you are into architecture. Check out the court yard at the back as well. ***Update*** Another reason for you to check out the...

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...

119 Beach St, Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA 01944, USA
My favorite beach in the Northeast is named for the way the sand squeaks underfoot. The quintessential New England seaside town of Manchester-by-the-Sea feels straight out of the 1950s and lightyears away from nearby Boston. Catch the train if...

Sometimes I take Boston for granted. I become annoyed with the traffic, crowded sidewalks, or the million and one other things that make city living challenging. On these types of days, I have a simple remedy. I walk down to the Charles River,...

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...

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...

Brick oven classics come out of the kitchen in this North End mainstay. The traditional beehive shaped, wood burning oven makes great thin crusted pizza with all the traditional toppings. Mushroom and artichoke just happens to be my favorite....

The North End of Boston is the oldest residential area in the city, a small neighborhood inhabited since the 1630's. It's an understatement to say it's loaded with character, and no other spot in Beantown will transport you to another world as...
