Happy Friday from STR Boston! Fall is less than a week away! We are celebrating what is by far the best season in Boston. It’s time to throw on some more layers and take your jackets out from storage to get in the spirit of autumn.
Below are the top 5 things you must do when visiting Boston!
1. Fall Foliage
New England (and Boston) is world famous for our breath taking fall foliage. Take a stroll through Boston’s Public Garden, located in the heat of the city. Boston’s Public Garden is home to many densely planted trees and shrubs that change colors at slightly different times, making a constant changing of leaf tones.
PATS, PATS, PATS. Whether you are sitting at home or enjoying the game at a bar with crazy fans, Boston is the place to be!
3. Apple Picking
With so many orchards within an hour of the city, nothing should be stopping you from going out there and picking some delicious apples! Think of the endless recipes you can make with freshly picked apples and don’t forget the cider donuts! You can find all listings of orchards on Mass.gov or just Click Here.
4. Pumpkin flavored everything
From beer, to Ben and Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream, to pumpkin flavored hummus- which is a bit questionable? Boston has you covered! Head to Al Dente in the North end for some amazing pumpkin raviolis and a pumpkin dessert at Mike’s Pastry.
