A Weekend Guide to Boston, Massachusetts
Boston, Massachusetts one of the country’s oldest and most historic cities. It’s the perfect balance of small-town charm and big-city hustle. Enjoy a stroll along cobblestone streets. Visit Harvard, the most profound university in the world. Catch a Red Sox game at Fenway. Eat at some of the best Italian restaurants. Boston has a little something for everyone!
I wanted to share my exact weekend Boston itinerary with you all since I worked hard planning my first trip to Boston. First things first, I would recommend renting a car in Boston to get the most out of your stay!
- Check into your hotel.
- We stayed at the Kimpton Marlowe Hotel. It’s located in Cambridge but is only a quick ride to downtown Boston.
- Visit Harvard Square and walk around the campus and town. The architecture and the cute little shops and restaurants are the best part of Harvard Square.
- Have a late lunch at Russell House Tavern. I highly recommend the burger and delicious Mojitos!
- For dinner, Uber to North End which is Boston’s Little Italy.
- North End in Boston is super fun and lively at night. After dinner, you can people-watch along the streets and post up in a park.
- Visit Mike’s Pastry Shop it’s an iconic pastry shop located in Boston and always has a super long line. We visited right at closing so luckily didn’t have to wait long.
- Start the morning off at Caffe Nero for a light breakfast and coffee.
- Walk around Boston Common and Boston Public Garden for the most picturesque Boston sights (and the park where Good Will Hunting was filmed).
- Visit the Back Bay neighborhood to do some shopping.
- Explore the Boston Public Library (a must-see!) it’s architecture alone is reason enough to see this gem!
- Uber to Faneuil Hall Marketplace for lunch. It’s a marketplace that houses many different food vendors and shops.
- Post up at Fanueil Hall for drinks and watch the street performers perform.
- Grab an early dinner at Bambara. We loved the warm atmosphere and great cocktails!
- Grab brunch in Beacon Hill and explore one of the cutest neighborhoods in Boston.
- Rent bikes and bike along the waterfront of Cambridge (this was easily my favorite part of the trip).
- Stop at Cambridge Square and grab a coffee at Blue Bottle.
- If it is baseball season make sure to visit Fenway Park. We went for a night game and the matchup of the century — Yankees VS. Red Sox
- Make sure to get there early to partake in the block party they have prior to every game, such fun energy!
