Going to Boston

We are in our early 60's(still working!!) and are headed to Boston on February vacation. We have been before so we are familiar with the city. This trip we are looking for something to do that is out of the ordinary(we've done museums etc.)to do. We enjoy trying new restaurants etc.

Any ideas?

This is a fun “hole in the wall” place in Cambridge.

What about taking a class while you're there?

I would take a glass blowing, chocolate making or cooking class. Have fun whatever you decide to do.

when he lived in Boston. The glass exotic flowers and plants were amazing. The story of the reason they were produced was interesting.

You could have lunch or dinner at Top of the Hub for great views before it closes later this year. It's on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center. While there, you can go to the Skywalk Observatory and then catch a tour of Fenway Park (in walking distance).

Out of all of the restaurants in the North End, I like Panza the best. It's located on Hanover Street. On the same street, skip Mike's Pastry and hit Modern Pastry instead.

I also enjoy the Chart House restaurant on Long Wharf near the Marriot and New England Aquarium. The chowder is delicious.

Catch a Blue Man Group show at the Charles Playhouse near the Boston Common. It's great fun.

Enjoy! It's been a mild winter and fingers crossed it continues for you.

I didn't know Top of the Hub was closing. I went there last summer, remembering it from my younger days, and absolutely was thrilled with our Restaurant Week lunch specials. The view is excellent!

On my Bucket List for next summer is a visit to the Custom House Tower. I haven't researched it yet but it promises to be a nice visit.

If it's a nice day you may want to take a nice walk to Martin's Park by the Children's Museum. It is lovely, welcoming and dedicated to the young boy who lost his life at the Marathon finish line in 2013.

My other favorites are The Boston Public Library and Trinity Church. and the nearby Mapparium.

I have stayed in Boston in February and it was cold. I do love revisiting The Museum of Fine Arts. We went there that year because walking around the city was so challenging--cold and icy.

Improv asylum is awesome if you like comedy.

I love the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum which is one people don’t always know about. I also absolutely LOVE the science museum. I know you said not museums but I had to give a shout-out to those two.
