Boston Honeymoon in October

Hi All,

Heading to Boston in October for our honeymoon and staying at Omni Parker House, and just looking for a few ideas on things to do/places to eat. My wife loves animals so I'm sure she will want to see the aquarium, and I'm thinking a brewery tour and other than that we want to check out some historical things as well.

Any tips for places to go that we might not have thought of? Also we want to go for at least one nice dinner while we are there, any tips for that?

Parker House - good choice. I went there on my honeymoon. The hotel is on the Freedom Trail if you want historical stuff. It is all around you. Some people skip the USS Constitution because it is across the river but it should be seen.

You have the North End for Italian food and good seafood is all around. The Daily Catch is good.

Any kind of food really, local is always nice. Seafood, Italian, Steakhouse, would probably be top 3.

For Historical, you should definitely walk the Freedom Trail, whether you do it on your own, or possibly book a walking tour. The National Park Service offers walking tours and there are some private groups which have great walking tours of the city as well. I'm sure others will chime in on those.

Some other ideas, you can take a look through some historic properties managed by Historic New England:

Definitely make sure to take some walks through Beacon Hill, the Back Bay and the South End.

Take a Duck Tour

If you like Animals, you might want to look into a Whale Watch boat ride. Depending on when in October you are here, I believe some of them will still be operating.

For dining, Grotto on Beacon Hill is a very romantic and lovely restaurant with excellent Italian food. Pierrot Bistrot Francais is a great little French bistro on the back edge of Beacon Hill. Lala Rokh is a lovely Persian restaurant on Beacon Hill, which would be great for a honeymoon dinner. Mamma Maria as mentioned, is also an excellent choice.

Explore the Beacon Hill neighborhood on foot. Very historic and charming, and I think many tourists overlook it because the Freedom Trail barely skirts that neighborhood.

If the weather cooperates, you may want to go on a Whale Watch out of Boston.

If you are staying at the Omni Parker House, you might want to check out No. 9 Park (www.no9park.com) for a special dinner. It's expensive, but it's fantastic and very close to your hotel. Be sure to make reservations way in advance as it is a very busy (and relatively small) place.

If you want a brewery tour, check out New England Brewery Tours (www.NewEnglandBreweryTours.com). they'll take you to some great breweries and give you an awesome meal.

There is also the Boston By Foot tour thru the North End. It is reasonably priced.
