I reached out to my good friend Susan Lewis, a local Boston REALTOR® and the Director of Learning & Development for LAER Realty Partners, to find out what are the “can’t miss” opportunities while visiting Boston. Here’s what she recommends:
1. For true Boston history, the Freedom Trail is a must do. This includes the old corner bookstore, the Old State House, Paul Revere’s home, the Granary Burying Ground, the USS Constitution, the Boston Massacre Site, the famous Bunker Hill Monument and more.
2. Take a trolley to Copley Square. Copley Square is a great place for walking, taking a lunch break, or catching some outdoor vendors for fresh fall produce. There’s a famous hotel nearby that’s beautiful to tour, the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. You’ll also see the scenic Trinity Church which offers free tours on Sunday after the 11:15am service.
4. Boston has great food. She recommends The Buttery for their great French toast and breakfast options, Durgin Park Restaurant for their “World Famous” New England Clambake, Mike’s Pastry for the best Boston cannoli, B & G Oysters for their oyster shucking classes, NoName Restaurant near the convention center for local, fresh fish and Faneuil Hill Marketplace, which is a great hall full of every kind of food or snack you can imagine. Her personal favorite from the market is Boston Chowda Company.
