Your New York friends might disagree, but Boston is actually a slyly cool town. With its rich heritage, professional sports dominance, and devotion to drink (despite those pesky blue laws), the Hub is a wonderful place to spend a day, week, or lifetime. So before you die, or worse, move, you’ll want to experience the best our fair city and the surrounding area has to offer.
Experience 360-degree views of the city from Boston’s highest restaurant and bar. Go before 8pm to avoid the drink minimum.
2. Picnic on the Common
Established in 1634, America’s oldest park is a fun place to hang out, play "Wonderwall" on your guitar, and watch all kinds of interesting people. In summer, catch the Frisbee dudes, AcroYogis, and student musicians. In winter, ice skate on the frog pond and warm up with a hot chocolate at L.A. Burdick on Clarendon St.
