Explore Boston’s neighborhoods
This year, get out of your neighborhood and explore someone else’s. People who frequent spots wth heavy foot traffic, such as Newbury Street or the South End’s Tremont Street should give Boston’s vibrant neighborhoods a chance. Head to Charlestown and hang at the local watering hole (one recommendation: Ironside Grill). Instead of heading to the waterfront, try Franklin Cafe or Local 149 in South Boston. Know Boston in and out? Give Union Square in Somerville a shot, home to two restaurants (Backbar and Casa B.) that made Boston Globe Magazine’s “Best of the New” list.
