Hang out in the trendy Seaport, Kendall Square areas
It seems like almost every month, a new restaurant opens its doors in Southie’s waterfront (pictured). With its idyllic views of Boston waters and brand new buildings, it’s a welcome break from the crowded streets of Downtown Boston.
Another draw is the Institute of Contemporary Art’s “First Fridays,” an event on the first Friday of each month that features music, drinks, dancing, and lots of fun.
Walk a few blocks from the Seaport and check out the Fort Point area, another up-and-coming area that features speakeasy-style bars such as Drink and Lucky’s Lounge, and restaurants by renowned chefs such as Barara Lynch’s Sportello and Joanne Chang’s Flour.
If you need a break from Boston, check out Kendall Square in Cambridge, which is similarly developing in an astonishing speed. Visit popular restaurants such as West Bridge or Belly Wine Bar, or give a classic, such as the Cambridge Brewing Company another shot.
