WHERE TO EAT and WHAT TO DO in BOSTON
We spend two days exploring the city of Boston! We start out by making our way to the North End of the city and having lunch, and eventually head to a craft beer tap room. We then explore Beacon Hill and the Boston Common, finally making our way back to our hotel called Revere Hotel Boston Common. Our day ends with an awesome meal at Myers & Chang. The next day starts with a run through the Public Gardens and the Charles River Esplanade. We eventually finish off our time in the city with brunch at Little Donkey and a walk around Cambridge.

Boston’s North End:
The North End, Boston’s Little Italy, is a maze of narrow streets with some of the city’s oldest buildings. On the self-guided Freedom Trail, tourists pass historic sites like the 1680 Paul Revere House and the Old North Church, which played a key role at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Italian restaurants, coffeehouses, pastry shops and old-school delis pack the area, especially on lively Hanover Street.
Myers+Chang is all about fresh product, exotic herbs, redolent spices. Alison Hearn served as opening executive chef to develop a menu that reflects Joanne and Christopher’s personal interpretation of Chinese, Thai, and Vietamese specialties. Today that philosophy is carried on by Chef Karen Akunowicz, who works closely with Joanne and Christopher to offer creative and craveable dishes served by people passionate about great service and dedicated to having fun.
Boston Public Garden:
The Public Garden, also known as Boston Public Garden, is a large park in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, adjacent to Boston Common. It is a part of the Emerald Necklacesystem of parks, and is bounded by Charles Street and Boston Common to the east, Beacon Street to the north, Arlington Street and Back Bay to the west, and Boylston Streetto the south. The Public Garden was the first public botanical garden in America.
Boston’s Charles River:
Along the Boston side of the Charles River, which separates the city from Cambridge, is a roughly three-mile leafy path known as the Esplanade. To take in its full charm, begin your walk near the Museum of Science (at Monsignor O’Brien Highway and Storrow Drive), which, not incidentally, is a great place to occupy kids for several hours. As you amble west toward the Boston University Bridge, you’ll pass playgrounds and marshes and places to rent sail boats and buy lemonade (you are, remember, visiting in good weather). You’ll also be swarmed by flocks of wild geese and packs of joggers. More often than not, the joggers will leave you alone, but beware of the geese — they are easily riled and nasty.
Little Donkey, Boston:
Located in the heart of Cambridge’s Central Square, Little Donkey is the latest collaboration of James Beard Award-winning chefs Ken Oringer & Jamie Bissonnette.
The concept offers a global small plates menu driven by the chefs’ travel & its diverse new neighborhood. Guests will find themselves sampling unique flavors from around the world- from Jersey to Japan – heavily influenced by availabilities in local markets.
Just across the Charles River from the city of Boston, Cambridge commands a cult following all its own. This scholastic city combines working-class perseverance with high-class entertainment and university class schedules. From the quiet residential streets in its western edge to the hip squares and happening courtyards along its numerous college campuses, this constantly evolving area will continue to attract thinkers, dreamers, families, and professionals for semesters to come.
