In January I had my first layover in Boston, and instead of researching for my trip through Pinterest and travel blogs I decided to ask my amazing followers on Instagram for their top recommendations in the city. This is now the only way I want to do travel research as the recommendations were AWESOME and totally varied. I’ve shared my favourite tips I got and a few of my own so read on for the ultimate Instagram guide to Boston. All links are back to Instagram, Enjoy!
But first, coffee..
Tatte Bakery (above) recommend by pretty much EVERYONE and easy to see why. The ultimate Instagrammable cafe with its white metro tiles and marble worktops. Great coffee and Shakshuka served with buttery sweet soft bread.
Regina pizzeria (above) – seriously. BEST. PIZZA. EVER! I had the vegetarian feast, but was very envious of the four cheese pizza the guy ordered next to me. Thanks for the recommendation @hangrystories – my food tip hero!
Skip mikes pastry which is way too crowded and go round the corner to Maria’s (no IG and when you visit you’ll understand) for better tiramisu and they fill the cannelloni right in front of you @farawaymuseum (pictured below)
Cheers bar – @lordmarcusdean
Things to do:
Bates hall (above) at Boston library – simply stunning and so eerily quiet. @lauren.short
Walk down Newbury street – Great for people watching, shopping and grabbing coffee @glutenfreetravellife
Best view of city from piers park East Boston @glutenfreetravellife
Beacon hill for bakeries – tatte + flour are both here. Also here lies the most photographed street in America (Acorn street) @kellinicole12
Visit Harvard (above) – me @thelayoverlife_
Natural history museum glass flower exhibition @delta.bravo7
Finalé for dessert @neel.nat
Cuchi cuchi -20s themed cocktail bar @farawaymuseum
