Boston is probably one of the few cities in the US which are beautiful throughout the year. However, fall is definitely my favorite season and my reason can be easily justified. As the leaves turn color and fall off the trees, Boston Common’s beauty is unforgettable. Along with its historic architecture, walking around the park will definitely make you feel like a child again!
Back Bay, Fenway and Beacon Hill
Wander around the luxury shopping district of Back Bay visiting boutiques and little stores on Newbury Street, taking a break in between at its various coffee shops and restaurants. In case you’re one of those who enjoy a good walk with a hot beverage, then definitely visit LA Burdick for a hot chocolate to go and hit the road again.
If the weather is too cold for you but still looking for that shopping spree day, then Prudential Center, right next to Copley Square, will do. In addition, a good day indoors can definitely be spent at The Museum of Fine Arts, which holds one of the most comprehensive collections in the world and possesses materials from a wide variety of art movements and cultures.
No matter whether you love art and architecture or you know nothing about them, a walk in the most beautiful neighbourhood in Boston, Beacon Hill, will make you appreciate nature and the famous brownstones’ architecture. Let your self get lost in the narrow streets, enjoy the decorated house entrances with pumpkins and all sorts of halloween extravaganza and feel the nature through the fallen leaves surround you.
Waterfront and Cambridge
Waterfront is a location that could be advantageous for many families as it offers the Faneuil Hall, a marketplace usually crowded, depending on the time of the day, which offers shopping and dining. During the weekends there is also a carousel that kids – why not even parents – can ride and have fun. In addition, you can spend the rest of the day by having a stop at the Aquarium, located just a few minutes away from Faneuil Hall.
Plan a day to cross the bridge and visit Cambridge’s hot spots. Visit Harvard University’s open campus with lots of historical buildings and enjoy Harvard Square which is usually full of young crowd. In case you get hungry you can always try, perhaps the most famous restaurant in the area, Mr. Bartley’s burger cottage. There’s usually a queue but it’s definitely worth the experience.
