Beacon Hill/Acorn Street
With being a fashion blogger I am always looking for spots to take the best OOTD pictures. Beacon Hill has got to be one of my favorite spots I have taken outfit pictures to date. The old exteriors and the cobble stone streets are perfect for all you Instagram lovers in search of a place to get perfect pictures. Acorn Street in particular is a must-see. This street is one of the most photographed streets in America.
Whenever I travel I seem to always make it a point to visit bookstores. This one in particular is ADORABLE! Brattle Book Shop is a charming bookstore with half of its inventory outside and half inside. A lot of the books, if not all, are old and rare. Seriously a must see in Boston and it is located very close to the Boston Common which is another one of my must-sees.
Boston Public Library
This other historic, old building is another must-see. The Boston Public Library is not only gorgeous inside and looks like something from a movie but, the outside courtyard area is also stunning. To get to anything in Boston you primarily walk so since the library was one of my mom and I’s last stops for the day we relaxed a bit in the courtyard area and rested our feet and enjoyed the peaceful view. A lot of people study in this library despite being a popular tourist destination so be mindful of that when exploring this eclectic spot.
I am all about finding the best view of a city and I believe the Boston Harbor is the best place to get the skyline view of downtown Boston. You take a bridge over the water away from the buzz of the city to the more calming side. My mom and I found a bench in front of the water and just sat and watched the boats go by and admired this beautiful city. Fun Fact: the picture below Aerie featured on their website. I attached the link if you are interested lol! When I first started my blog one of the goals I had was to be featured on Aerie or work with them and after only a couple of months it already happened!
Boston Common/Public Garden
The central park of Boston: the Boston Common is a must-see. It is soooo beautiful and probably one of the most popular things to see in Boston. It’s located around a busy street and a lot of shopping areas for reference. The public garden, which is in the Common has a beautiful pond with a bridge to take pics on and just beautiful trees and scenery all around. This is definitely the spot for the nature lovers.
Little Italy/Mike’s Pastry
I heard about Mike’s Pastries from one of my friends, Nour, and also a lot of the Pinterest posts I was looking at for Boston recommended this popular desert shop for their iconic cannolis. They definitely did not disappoint. My mom and I got two cannolis and two of their other specialties thinking we would be able to finish them between the two of use before we left the next day but my we were wrong. Mike’s deserts are HUGE and very rich so don’t get carried away haha! Mike’s is located in Little Italy so my mom and I briefly wandered around and ate at one of the Italian restaurants… I unfortunately do not remember the name but the butternut squash raviolis I got were TO DIE FOR!! I’m thinking any of the restaurants in Little Italy will be delicious so, wander around a bit and look at the menus posted on the windows and find one that sounds good to you.
This was my first time in Boston but I definitely don’t think it will be my last so if any of you have any other suggestions PLEASE let me know! I would love to try out new places the next time I go and if anyone visits the places I mentioned, let me know as well! I love hearing from you guys!
