If you are traveling to Massachusetts, you are likely going to make a visit to Boston (and if you’re not, you probably should). And if you live in the area, you might be looking for some great places to go on a date, including amazing restaurants. With plenty of options to choose from, dating in Boston is easier than you might think.
From historic spots, to museums and the waterfront, there are plenty of places to visit if you are looking to plan the perfect date or even just coming to the city on vacation. The city is beautiful and filled with history, and it makes for a great place to plan the perfect date, whether during the day or in the evening.
Among the places we recommend are Faneuil Hall, which is the perfect indoor/outdoor market, and of course the Freedom Trail, which is a two-and-a-half mile journey featuring historic landmarks, for any history lovers in your life. The Boston Public Gardens and Swan Boats is a must visit as it is the oldest Botanic Gardens in the country and of course who wouldn’t want a chance to ride on the lovely swan boats. And in the winter you can skate on the pond, which is always a perfect date idea.
Another must visit stop in Boston is the Sam Adams Brewery. If you are a beer lover then you have to stop in for a behind-the-scenes look at the beer making process, while also getting the chance to sample a bit of the current brew, and even check out the official Beer Museum of the city.
Of course, beyond the must visit sites and stops, there are also plenty of amazing restaurants to hit up as well. In fact, with so many restaurants in Boston to choose from, we think you will be able to plan the perfect date night, but luckily we have chosen some amazing spots to get your date planning started. Here are some of the hidden gems and amazing restaurants that we at Food and Dating think you simply have to try in Boston.
Located in the North End of Boston, Neptune Oyster is a must visit restaurant that serves some of the best seafood around. And when I say some of the best, I mean it. Not only do they make some of the best lobster rolls, but their oysters and clam chowder are must haves too. And these aren’t the only menu items you have to try. Even if there is a long line, it is still worth the wait because the food is just that good.
