Candlepin bowling is unique to New England, and therefore a definite must-do in Boston. Unlike normal, 10-pin bowling, the bowling balls are small and the pins are thin, making it a bit easier to play. And because Sacco’s is located inside a Flatbread Pizza, you can get food delivered right to your lane while you bowl. Renting a lane will run you $25 for the hour, plus $2 for the bowling shoe rental.
Shop on Charles St
Forget Newbury St. The cute and colorful boutique shops, gourmet grocery stores, and restaurants on Charles St are the real shopping destinations when you’re looking for a nice relaxing stroll. There's no hustle and bustle of Newbury here. Charles Street is located in the historic district of Beacon Hill, where you'll see cobblestones and brick townhouses lining the streets, which calls for a charming walk. Of course, depending on what you buy, prices are going to vary.
