As a follow up to our New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles digital City Guides, we journey back east today to explore historic Boston. Known as one of America’s first cities, home of many prestigious universities, sport teams, and the location of our Copley Place store, we’re thrilled to showcase the best go-to spots as recommended by our newest influencers.
Looking for a bite to eat while in town? Some of city’s best chefs share where to go, noting favorites in various neighborhoods including Little Italy. For great pizza, there’s Picco, loved by chef Joanne Chang, or for classic New England-inspired fare there’s Puritan & Co frequented by chef Jamie Bissonnette.
While traveling like a Boston insider, there are plenty of outdoor activities to experience too, like renting a boat on the Charles River, recommended by blogger Jean Wang, or strolling through the Esplanade and Public Garden. Boston Common is a scenic must-visit for designer Sarah Flint, and the gorgeous courtyard at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum was favored by many.
Famed bassist Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith also shares his local picks—including the interesting Larz Anderson Auto Museum—and beauty-guru Lev Glazman of Fresh advocates Exhale for the best massages. New salons, bars, cafes, and more are all in our newest guide, with curated shopping sections to ensure you’re looking the part. So plan your next trip to Boston after consulting our Rolodex of stylish destinations and keep a look out for international City Guides, coming soon.
