All I wanted this fall was to take a trip to somewhere with charming foliage and cool weather. So I decided to book a quick vacay to Boston, and I couldn’t have been more impressed by just how beautiful it actually was. This was one of my favorite trips that we’ve been on so far. Boston is so rich in history, so historically beautiful and the weather was absolutely perfect.
Sights and Attractions In Boston
Boston Common The leaves were all changing that views were perfection. I’ve never seen fall so beautiful. I could’ve wandered this park all day.
Beacon Hill is the cutest area I’ve ever seen. It reminded me a little of Greenwich Village but even cuter! There are brownstones with decorated stoops and the most charming cobblestone streets. Acorn Street was my absolute fave and it’s a huge photo attraction.

Quincy Market is a nice market area with vendors and restaurants galore. We walked through and did a bit of shopping. They were already putting up the Christmas tree and beginning to add lights. I’m sure its all done and ready for the holidays now.
What to Eat
We spent a few hours walking around the Boston Public Market and then headed to Little Italy for some of the most delicious pasta I’ve ever had.
Legal Seafood is my all time fave. The lobster is to die for. Like its what dreams are made of, and if you stay at the Revere, it’s right across the street from the hotel.
Regina’s Pizza It was so good y’all. They use the freshest ingreidients, and it was definitely my top 2 pizzas I’ve ever had. (Adrienne’s in NYC is my no. 1)
Duck Tour and The Freedom Trail – Both of these were so much fun. I personally enjoyed the duck tour more, but they were both equally interesting and fun. I would suggest doing tours like these on your first day in the city because you’ll learn about other things that you want to do and spots you want to visit on your trip. We did the tours on the last day and didn’t have time to do some of the things we heard about from the tours themselves. For instance, our Duck tour guide told us about a football museum that I’m sure my husband would have loved to visit, but it was our last day in the city so we ran out of time for it.
Salem was about a 45 minute train ride out of Boston, but trust me, it is worth the trip! Of course there is the witch museum which takes you through the Salem witch trials, and that was interesting, but honestly the best part of our trip to Salem was how incredibly beautiful it was. The kind of charming beauty that makes you want to just move right in. It looks exactly like it was taken out of a movie. There were so many gorgeous colonial style homes, picket fences and Fall leaves. I feel like every corner was a perfect photo opp. The entire place was stunning!
Where to Stay in Boston
We stayed at the Revere Hotel Boston Common. I absolutely recommend this place as it was super cute, contemporary and sleek. It was the perfect location, and it was walking distance to nearly everything that we did!
The staff were extremely helpful with suggestions for things to do around the city and the robes and slippers in the room were extra comfy (because thats really important). Lastly, they had a great breakfast bar and a nice lounge to relax after sightseeing all day.
We had a king room, that was modern, cozy, and came with the most amazing view of the city. Y’all know I’m a sucker for cityscapes, and the view from Revere Hotel was incredible (see below).
