7 Date Ideas in the City | Series

What to do in boston, date ideas for boston, blovedboston
Happy Monday friends! Another wonderful summer weekend gone by way too fast, but I think we're being rewarded with amazing weather! This weekend gave me a great idea for the next part of my "Boston Series" with date ideas in the city! These are great if you live around Boston or if you're visiting for a weekend and looking for something fun to do with your significant other! Two previous series posts are Boston During the Day and Best Brunch Spots in Boston!

Picnic in the Park || This one's easy! Get a pizza, pick up your favorite sandwich or you could even pick up sushi to go (my favorite) and eat it at the park! I really should get a picnic basket and try to make it a little bit more festive! My favorite parks for this are the public garden & anywhere on the esplanade!

South End Chocolate Tour || A couple years ago Gary & I took this tour and had the best afternoon walking and tasting chocolate from restaurants and stores in the South End. I did a full review that you could read here, but if you're a fan of chocolate and want to see one of the best neighborhoods in the city, then this is a fun afternoon!

Boston Wine Tour || Similar to the chocolate walking tour, we did a walking tour with City Wine Tours and had the best time in a smaller group setting. At the time there were only a couple of neighborhoods to choose from, but now they have so many other possibilities. We went with the Back Bay & were excited to learn that each stop had a little food for us to sample as well - probably smart you'd want to carb load us before sending us to the next stop! 
Paddle Boats on the Charles || If it's a nice day, the paddle boats are so much fun!! Pack some water because it's a workout!! Funny story for this little date that Gary planned - we were both pretty excited to get out there in the paddles and then I realized we had to paddle back - let's just say it took twice as long and poor Gary had more of a workout than he was expecting! 

Castle Island & the Beach || Since Boston is on the coast, we are surrounded by water, so when you want to head for the beach you can actually venture to South Boston's Castle Island which is a great little day date escape. Just keep in mind, it's a city beach so it's rocky! 

Blue Man Group || This show is worldwide now, but there is a set theater here in Boston where they perform and this is such a fun date night idea! Located in the theater district you could always have a dinner before the show! Fun tip - you can get reduced tickets for the day of the show at a couple of ticket booths in the city - one is in Faneuil Hall and the other is right next to the Boston Public Library, just go early in the day so that you can get tickets! 
Red Sox Game || So baseball is not even close to my favorite sport, but I'm always up for a date to Fenway Park! You don't even have to spent a ton on the tickets to get a good view, but you must get one of the Fenway Franks - they are specially made only for Fenway Park!

Gary and I are always up for exploring, so I'm interested to know what you favorite thing to do on a date where you live? What about when you're on vacation?

  1. All these things sound like so much fun! Visiting the breweries around the city are always something fun to do in St. Louis! And my brother and sister in law always do food tours with her family when they are in town - such a great way to explore and eat yummy food!
