We ended up Stoddard's after walking around a bit. The atmosphere is really cool. Has that old-timey bar feel to it. We ordered the poutine to split and it was delicious. Drinks were very good and the service was excellent.

We have been to Stoddard's on multiple occasions and have NEVER had a bad meal. The ambience is great too, cozy vibe. Great bar scene. If you love craft beers, cocktails and delicious food , it is definitely worth a trip downtown.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
