Boston is a really great city and with the corona virus still wreaking havoc on our world, we decided to take a break from our day to day life and enjoy the city for a weekend.
Where we Stayed
We stayed at the Boston Intercontinental Hotel which is located at 510 Atlantic Ave, Boston. It was beautiful and the service was amazing. Room service took care of our every need and parking was included in our package. We had views of the city from our room and the hotel is within walking distance of many cool places. Now because of COVID, some of the amenities at the hotel were closed like the spa, pool and gym, as well as some of their restaurants. We ate at Miel, one of the hotel’s restaurants. The food was delicious and well prepared. Our room was perfect. It featured the most amazing bed I have ever slept in! (my bed at home will never feel the same LOL) Our room also had a huge bathroom, with a shower and bathtub. It is really a cool design of having those big windows that could open up the bathroom/tub to the bedroom. It gave a cool open concept feel. The room had huge floor to ceiling windows and light blocking curtains.
Where we ate at
One of the places that we also ate at (yes I am a big foodie!), is The Granary Tavern, located at 170 Milk Street Boston. The food was so tasty and the service was top notch. The restaurant has both outside and inside seating.
We also tried out The Shaking Crab restaurant, located at 140 Boylston Street, Boston. I follow them on Instagram and is always drooling when they post pictures of their delicious seafood boils, so I was gonna use this trip to Boston to finally try their food. I had the garlic noodles along with The Jumbo Shaker (snow crab and shrimp). I also had corn. The Shaking crab definitely lived up to my expectations as I thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
On our last night, we had a lovely dinner at Fin Point Oyster Bar and Grille, located at 89 Broad street, Boston. The food was everything! Very big portions and very delicious. My fave was their chicken over mashed potatoes, with baby carrots and beets (Talk about an explosion of flavors!) It was a very big plate of food and I couldn’t believe that I ate so much food. To top things off, we indulged in their chocolate mousse for dessert an it was amazing.
What we did
We love art and museums and decided that we would visit the Science Museum, located at, 1 Museum of Science Driveway. The museum gets lots of visitors, so I was impressed with the fact that they had sanitizers placed at every turn throughout the facility. Everyone wore their masks and there were plenty of signs reminding guests to wash their hands. Though this was a fun activity, I thought this museum is more for students. My favorite part was the Planetarium, where they showed a film called Destination Mars: The New Frontier.
We also visited The Institute of Contemporary Arts, located at 25 Harbor Shore Dr, Boston. They have some very awesome exhibitions that are being shown right now.
We had a great time in Boston and we will definitely be going back to the Intercontinental. Have you done anything fun lately? Let me know in the comments. Be sure to check out these placed if you are ever in Boton. Thanks for reading! xoxox
