In today’s blogpost we are spending one day in Boston. We will visit the Skyline Observatory, stroll through Back Bay, eat our way through Little Italy and go on a food tour!
Must do in Boston : Skyline Observatory
We have been to the skyline observatory, on the 52th floor of the Prudential Tower, to have an overview of the city from above! It is really impressive to see modern glass skyscrapers next to small Victorian houses and churches of the 19th century. A must do when in Boston!
Go see the Victorian houses of Back Bay
Back Bay is the prettiest and most elegant neighborhood with lot of Victorian houses and many sightseen like the Boston’s Public Library, Boston’s Trinity Church, Coplay Square and Common Park, the oldest city park of the country.
Eat your way through Little Italy
In North End, there is the little and picturesque neighborhood of Little Italy. There, it is nice to walk around Hanover Street and Salem Street for some ice cream. At Mike’s Pastry they have every imaginable cannoli, even lobstertail cannoli!! (filled with cream). Close by there is also the Haymarket, the open-air market running on the weekends.
Food tour in Boston
Food was a highlight during our New England road trip itinerary so we also planned a food tour with the lovely guys of “Off the beaten Path”. It is an interesting tour on the neighborhood of Fenway to discover some of the most iconic street food in Boston.
We started right from the Fenway Park stadium which is home of the very famous and beloved Red Sox baseball team. Who never wanted to experience a real American baseball match? And why not do it “inside” the game field? This is what you can do from The Bleacher Bar, an unique bar built in the former storage room of the stadium. From the huge window you literally are on the game field and can watch the game at the same level of the players.
On the menu lot typical stadium fast food 🙂 snacks, sandwiches and beer of course: 38 variety of brands between draft, bottle and can beer!!
We had the meatballs sandwich, really yummy!!
Note: You don’t need to buy a match ticket to enter in the bar, so during the most important matches this bar can be obviously very crowded but I would say that the unique experience must be really worth it!
Our other stops of the tour has been:
- Regina Pizzeria, apparently one of the best fast food pizza since 1926, probably because the only fast food pizza I ever saw cooked with an brick oven!
- Neighborhoods Cafè, a family-owned artisan coffee shop, offers salt and sweet crepes, cookies and great coffee!
- Eventide, for ice cream, smoothies, oyster and wine!
- Craft Beer Cellar, for beer lovers is a must! Selection of beers from all over the world!
