Hello everyone and happy Friday! Its our last day here in beautiful Stowe Vermont but I wanted to stop in to give you our travel guide to our recent stop to Boston Massachusetts. We spent about a day and a half in Boston so if you are looking for what to do on your next 24 hour trip here here is what we did.
The Godfrey Hotel – Make sure you book your tickets in advance as they start to get a bit more pricey during the fall season. We really like staying at The Godfrey as it had a modern feel and great staff. They are located right in the center of all the fun places you will want to see. Which are just a walk or uber away.
TIP * When looking for a place to stay try to stay with the back Bay Area as it is an ideal spot for sightseeing.
Freedom Trail ( guided tour ) – Initially Chris and I were just going to do the self guided tour but trust the me the hour and half guided tour is so worth it! The really paint a picture for you while they describe all of the history that has happened here in Boston. We did the 10:30 am tour and found that it was a great time.
Brattle Book Shop – This is close around the corner from our hotel and is a great set to find a good book.
Acorn Street – This is the most photographed street so you know I was all over it! There are a ton of people taking pictures here but worth it for a cute pic or two! If you have time walk around beacon street and look at the cute houses.
* TIP bring a pair of walking shoes these cobble stone streets as pretty as they are, are a bit hard to walk on if you you have a sort of heeled boot.
Isabella Gardener Museum – After we checked out from our hotel we stopped at this museum and saw so much gorgeous architecture. There were even opera singers that you can watch while you sit surrounded by the beautiful building.
Boston Public Park – If you love squirrels you are going to love this park! Chris and I walked around this beautiful park watching the dogs chase squirrels. This would be a great spot to also grab a few sandwiches and have a picnic.
Cheers – If you have heard of the show this a great stop to make.
Area Four Pizza – Chris and I took a quick uber ride to for some amazing pizza! We almost did get a chance to eat here since they were booked and we didn’t have reservation but they were super nice and were able to accommodate a table for us. We ended up going for the NOT Pepperoni wood fired pizza! YUM!
Tate Bakery – Our first morning in Boston we grabbed our cozy coats and headed to Tate bakery for tasty lattes and warm flaky pastries.
Cheers – Chris really wanted to go here so as a nice wife I agreed. If you have ever heard of the show Cheers this was the original bar/restaurant where they shot the show. This place can get a bit crowded but a great place to look at all the memorabilia and drink a few beers!
James Hook & Company – YOU MUST get the lobster rolls! Seriously they are so good! We ended up splitting the hot butter lobster roll with a side clam chowder. Grab a seat outside and enjoy!
Trillium Beer Garden – This was Chris’s favorite. we bundled up grabbed a few beers and then hit up the food trucks.
Omni Parker Hotel – Here you will find the ORIGINAL Boston creme pie!
Chris and I had so much fun in Boston and hope to make it back in time for a game at Fenway Park! If you can make sure to take a drive to see Salem, Massachusetts. Since we we’re driving up to Vermont we made a pit stop into Salem and saw a lot of the movie spots from Hocus Pocus! We spent about 2 hours here and thought that was perfect before heading to Stowe, Vermont. I’ll have my travel guide for Vermont for you all next Friday! Stay Tuned!
