Bored on a beautiful Massachusetts day? Go on an adventure around the city!
I used food (because who doesn’t love food?) as my example but feel free to make a different variation!
Here are some things to keep in mind:
Be realistic how far you are willing to travel for walking or commuting via MBTA!
*If you are worried about money, look into a 1 day MBTA pass*
Know what you want and where you want it (I put an example below)
Remember that there are so many food spots so by knowing what you want, you order just enough to sample and get a feel without stuffing yourself!
Know thy budget, love thy budget!
Here is an example with some food suggestions:
1. Government Center/Quincy Market
They have lots of options for food such as a typical NE meal: clam chowder and lobster rolls. The market also offers Mexican, Japanese, and Indian. My favorite place to go is Boston Chowda, but I’m very biased! I’ve been going there since I was a tot. I love their shepherd’s pie.
*Tip: if there is nowhere to sit inside, you can sit in Christopher Columbus Park for a picnic experience. The great outdoors, fresh air, and rad views*
2. Boston Public Market
Also, another great place that has all kind of fresh foods.
Union Sq. Donuts has a counter but considering it’s fall I’m going to drop a cider donut pic to set the fall spirit!

3. North End
BIG TOURIST HOT SPOT! The North End is known for Italian foods but is more well known for the pastries. Mike Pastry versus Modern Bakery is a big MA dessert debate

4. The Rose Kennedy Greenway
Sometimes on the weekday, you can catch a few food trucks outside, the best day to go although is Saturday during their open market. Lots of food trucks and cool local finds like organic food, homemade jewelry and houseware.
Check out the schedule below to find out what food trucks to expect each day.
Chinatown is the perfect place to get small treats for not a lot of money.
6. Back Bay/Newbury Street
Some food suggestions are: Shake Shack, Wich It, Amorino Gelato, (http://www.wichitsandwich.com/Pages/Menu.aspx?DeptID=0)
Tasty Burger is my favorite for a classic burger-fries-shake but there are so many more places to go!
Some alternatives are: Blackbird Donuts, Tatte, Neighborhood, By Chloe, Honey Grow, Blaze Pizza
If you have any food suggestions or places to go, feel free to share it below in the comment section. There are so many other areas like Allston, Brighton, and Cambridge to venture into.
