Playing Tourist in Boston…

by agirlandhermutt on August 10, 2015

Between the crazy weather, nasty traffic, ridiculous cost of living and loads of people (students), it can be easy to lose sight of how great Boston is. This past weekend we had GORGEOUS weather and I decided to be a tourist in my own city.

What I wore

I rediscovered this really cool necklace my parents got me a couple of years ago that I LOVE. I’ve been wearing it religiously for the past few days.

What I did…

We explored the new Boston Public Market. The market is just amazing. All kinds of specialty vendors, food to go, and even a craft beer shop. It reminds me of a small version of Eataly.Untitled

We people watched in Faneuil Hall. Watching people try to operate selfie sticks is my new favorite past time.

We walked a big chunk of the Harbor Walk.

We did a little Geocaching. A few non successful hunts and one really good find!

What I ate…

I tried to get a lobster roll from James Hook but the line was ridiculous. If you are ever in town, definitely make a pit stop here. If you live here, come back when it isn’t crowded.

But I did get Oysters! from The Daily Catch. There was also a salad from Flour. It was good, but not photo worthy. I did complain about mixed greens and how they look like weeds on Snapchat though. 😉Untitled


A really fun beer that I just HAVE to try. We found this at Bees Knees Supply.

Gorgeous flowers. Everywhere.

What was supposed to be just a little trip down to the Public Market ened up being a full day in the city that was just so lovely. Final results?Z


I tend to stick to the usuals. My usual restaurant, my usual bar, my usual routine. It was nice to branch out a little and appreciate some new (and remember a few old) spots in Boston!

Get out and explore! Enjoy!


PS. One of my reviews is Yelp’s Review of the Day! Check it out!

I lived in boston for a few years and never did any of the good touristy things- just stuck to the duck tour and the US Constitution. Now that I don’t live there anymore, there are so many things I want to see/do/eat there!
