This is an excellent boutique hotel in a very central location in Beacon Hill. The lobby is a modest size and understated in its décor as are the hallways, but the rooms are replete with extras. The marble bathroom rooms provide amenities beyond shampoo, conditioner and soap, such as lip balm, a tv and heated towel rack. The bath sheets ...

TT's is a great small venue for live music. I used to go here all the time for indie acts and I always liked that it's lower key than a lot of other nearby and comparable venues. Standing room only, but that's the indie way, isn't it?Popular withAdventure

Along with Brookline's Booksmith and Harvard's Coop, this is one of my favorite book stores in the Boston area. Proudly independently and locally owned, Porter Square Books hosts lots of readings with local and national authors. The store also hosts Cafe Zing, which serves up some good coffee and snacks.

I once was spoiled living right next to Boston's infamously delicious North End. Now that I'm spending most of my time in Somerville, I've been wishing for a specialty Italian market and I was in luck! Sessa's has cured meats, cold cuts, pasta, pasta sauce and lots of cheese. But my biggest surprise was finding the elusive Kinder hippos that ...

"Cat paw, Cat paw, Cat paw". That's going to stay with me forever. The sushi making class definitely deserves a 4.75. I love eating sushi - since god knows how long ago and this is the first time I came to a class to learn how to properly roll a maki roll. A 90 minute introductory class is super entertaining ...Popular withFoodies

Grolier is the oldest of two poetry-only bookshops in the United States (the other being Open Books in Seattle, WA). Nestled behind the giant Harvard bookstore and a mediocre burger places that claims to sell "nachos" (please, I'm from California. You cannot pass your jarred Pace Picante nonsense off on me), Grolier is down the crooked, cobbled street of Plympton. ...

It’s a little tradition of mine to try out at least one sheesha/hookah bar out everywhere I visit. I must say that out of all of the sheesha bars I’ve been to around the world, the Sheesha Lounge in Boston is one of the most authentic lounges I’ve seen in quite some time! The staff is really personable and very ...Popular withAdventure

This spot is almost too sweet! Decadent chocolates, french macaroons and more fill the cases of this store. You can order coffee and sit at the window or do as I did, take your treats to go! I was particularly taken with the bergamot macaroon and know I will be headed back soon for another.Popular withFoodiesTrendstersLuxury

The Anderson Memorial Bridge is one of several motor and pedestrian bridges that connect Boston and Cambridge across the Charles River. Located on a gentle turn of the river near the Havard and Radcliffe boathouses, this is a choice location to watch the Head of the Charles Regatta. Recently the bridge has been undergoing some much-needed repair work, and has ...Popular withHistoryDesignOutdoor

Although the bridge itself isn't much to look at, its location on the steepest turn of the Head of the Charles course makes it arguably the best place to watch the regatta -- you are guaranteed to see at least a few crashes on race day! The rest of the year, this remains a common and useful point to cross ...Popular withHistoryOutdoorLocal

I didn't dislike this mall, but it was just a normal mall like any other. They had some high end stores here and you can enter through the Westin at Copley Square, but the whole mall is definitely a bit confusing as you can enter from various hotels and it all connects randomly so it's hard to find what you ...

I don't think the White Horse Tavern has much to make it something extraordinary. It's a decent bar with pool tables in the middle of a nice stretch of good dining in Allston. It's a fun place for a night out, but it is not a place you make a destination.Popular withAdventure
