Streets, Beats & Eats – Boston Posted by on Jun 23, 2016 in Uncategorized



Explore Beantown with us in this short video. Learn about the city’s history on the Freedom Trail, hit a Sox game, eat some chowda, sip on craft beers, and dance the night away.

“Start your day with a stroll along the Freedom Trail, a 2 1/2 mile long path that takes you by 16 historic sites. Along the way, you’ll see the Old City Hall, the King’s Chapel, the Old State House, and Faneuil Hall.

If you’re feeling hungry, stroll through the Quincy Market. Of course, there’s a lot of seafood on the menu here. Dig in to bowl of a local specialty – clam chowda. Next up, go where everybody knows your name – Cheers. The bar is a replica of the main set from a popular TV show by the same name. See the characters, pick up some Cheers merch, and sip on a spicy Bloody Mary.

Boston is a huge sports town, so go check out a game. The Red Sox play at historic Fenway Park, the oldest ballpark in the country. After the game, quench your thirst at nearby Beer Works. They’ve got tons of different beers here and always have seasonal choices, such as the Pumpkinfest.

For dinner, head to Flames. Split a huge appetizer platter, and enjoy other Caribbean treats such as curried vegetables and Jamaican jerk chicken.Wash it all down with a Red Stripe or juice.

Back downtown, hit the Greatest Bar for some late night fun. This epic 4-story bar honors the city’s history, its sports teams, and the entertainment scene. We even found our favorite band on the wall. Head downstairs to catch some live music. This is great place to party before, during, or after a Celtics or Bruins game.”
