Boston City Guide

Boston City Guide

Boston is one of America’s most beautiful cities and it is especially fun to visit in summer. During the warmer months it seems everyone in Boston is outside and enjoying life. Due to its small size it’s a super manageable city to explore on foot. Within one weekend alone you can squeeze in a whole lot of history, art, culture, eats and fun!

To get things started, we’ve put together a quick list of our favorites. If you’ve got a limited amount of time, stay at The Colonnade – it has a super central location and we love the rooftop pool. After your morning run along the Charles River, replace those calories with a cup of coffee and one of the warm sticky buns from Flour Bakery and Café. Head to Newbury Street to do some shopping or take a drive and visit Ku De Ta to get your hands on some KP accessories! Enjoy brick oven pizza, craft beer and tasty homemade ice cream on the patio at Picco and visit the wonderful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the afternoon. In the evening head to Sportello for the best pasta in the city and then go downstairs to Drink! for a tailor-made cocktail to suit your palette.
