24 hours in Boston, Massachusetts <3
June 8th was Delta’s inaugural flight from SFO to BOS. We decided to join in on the fun and spend the day in Boston. Delta went all out for this special day with a photo booth, complementary clam chowder and “Sweet Caroline” playing as we boarded! Leaving SFO at 11am got us into Boston around 8pm.
WHERE TO STAY: We stayed at the Boston Marriott Long Wharf located in the heart of Boston. Right across the drive way of the hotel were outdoor bars along the wharf. So we didn’t have to go far to get drinks! Everything seemed to be walking distance or a short/cheap Uber ride away. The hotel itself was really nice and the beds were extra comfortable. Our view overlooking the harbor was the cherry on top!
WHAT TO DO: There’s so much history to see in Boston. With a little less than 24 hours we did the best we could with the time we had. We walked around downtown to admire the old architecture. Boston felt like America’s Europe, with history around every corner. It was a surreal feeling that we were walking in the same areas that America’s ancestors roamed. We eventually made it the Boston Tea Party museum. You can pay for a tour/boat show. The boats were packed with kids so we decided to explore on our own. The entry point is a gift shaped filled with really cute tea sets and nik-naks. There’s a door that leads outside to another building which was the tea room. I felt like I was on the set of Little House on The Prairie. The room was filled with tables with board games made out of potato sacks. It was too hot to drink tea but the flavors sounded tasty!
WHERE TO EAT: We grabbed breakfast from Wheelhouse . These breakfast sandwich are incredible!!! It was so hard to choose but I went with a classic one with egg, cheese and bacon. It was so hard to choose from, everything sounded and looked delicious!
For lunch/early dinner we headed over to the Barking Crab. Be prepared to wait a while to get seated. We grabbed a drink from a hotel bar located right across the way. To be honest the wait is worth it, I would gladly wait 3 hours in order to eat here again. The seafood was fresh and the menu had so many options to pick from. We started with a lobster dip and fried oysters. Then for the main meal we ordered lobster rolls and snow crab. No one had time to speak to each other as we ate, we were that in love with our food!
WHAT TO WEAR: When packing the weather showed it was going to be “San Francisco” cool. So I packed my favorite jeans, a long sleeve and green bomber jacket. It ended up being extremely warm!
NIGHTLIFE: Four words… So. Many. Irish. Bars. (lol)
Can’t wait to return to Bostons for more fun, history, and food!!!!
