Spend a romantic evening in Boston, Massachusetts
What we love about the city of Boston is how appealing it is to all sorts of travelers. History buffs won't want to miss the Freedom Trail, while city slickers will love the modern appeal of the city. Don't shake your head if you think Boston is not a romantic destination. Step back in time and fall in love with the sights and romantic feel of a city that will take you away to pure bliss.
Explore Beacon Hill
Romance can be as simple as exploring a beautiful city. Look for that quintessential romantic walk through Beacon Hill, one of Boston’s top neighborhoods. This neighborhood is notorious for its gorgeous row houses and is one of the priciest areas to live in Boston. Start on Acorn Street, one of the most photographed streets in Boston. You'll love the exposed brick walls, cobblestone streets and hidden alleyways to enjoy secret kisses. Any season is romantic, whether it's a stroll during a lush spring day or snuggling together during first winter's frost.
Gondola di Venezia
Who says you had to go all the way to Venice for to enjoy a Gondola ride out on the water? If Italy is high on your list as a romantic vacation, recreate the experience in Boston. The authentic splendor of a gondola ride on the Charles River is just as romantic as it would be in Italy. The gondolas are actually built and shipped from the same place in Italy, so the only thing different is your location! The tour will take you on a quiet journey through Boston while being serenaded by a gondolier. It doesn't get any more romantic than this!
Often chosen as a romantic wedding and honeymoon destination, Martha’s Vineyard continues to attract romance for years. This simple and sweet place is a sophisticated place to find romance in the Boston area, though you'll have to take a ferry to get there. Besides feeling like you've escaped the city, there is plenty to do on the island like seaside golf, sailing and horseback riding. And best of all, the summertime is made for romantic strolls on the beach and watching the sunset with that special someone.
Lovers are meant to be spoiled and if you want to spoil them rotten, make a deluxe reservation at XV Beacon. This glamorous boutique hotel offers the total luxury experience. Choose the Romance on the Hill package, which includes early check in and late check out, champagne, and chocolate covered strawberries. You can even book a room's couple massage to enjoy the serenity of your comfortable room.
Top of the Hub
Last, but not least, agree with us when we say that love should make you feel like you're on top of the world. Get to the Top of the Hub, a restaurant and lounge giving lovers one heck of a view. At the 50th floor, you can visit the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory for a 360-degree panoramic view where on a clear day, you can see 100 miles away. At 52 floors high, you’ll get a classic view over the city (ask for special seating at the floor-to-ceiling windows). To accompany this view will be a splendid menu featuring savory Boston seafood and more.
