BOSTON

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, it looks like all I did last week was literally eat my way around the city of Boston.  Well, that’s partially true.  I also checked out some fun places I’ve been wanting to visit, along with my tried-and-true favs.

Boston is one of my favorite cities.  I love the history it holds and the hometown feeling I get every time I visit.  Being located so close to the coast, the beaches are only a short drive away, which is a nice escape and quick change of scenery on a hot day.  On this trip I ventured to Revere Beach, which is America’s first public beach est. in 1896.  I also explored the gorgeous Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and the Boston Public Library for the first time.  Check them out if you’re in town, they are all worth it!

I can honestly say Bostonians are some of the most genuinely kind people I’ve met.  Always offering great recommendations, and happy to help with directions which is not my strong suit.  I seriously can’t even follow my iPhone map walking directions.  Anyone else have that problem?

Anyways, I was on a food mission this trip and I sampled A LOT of cuisine.  Here is a list of the restaurants I visited.  If you’re in the Boston area they will not disappoint!

I know, I know this is a TON of food and I was only there for 3 full days, but I go by the “taste everything, eat nothing,” policy on these trips so I can try it all.  Let me know if you make it to any of these spots and what you think!  Recommendations for future trips are always appreciated too. 🙂
