If you’re trying to impressive your sweetie, you may want to check out some of Boston’s most romantic locations. There are all kinds of places to go and things to experience. All it takes is a little creativity to come up with some great ideas.
The Park at Fan Pier
The Park at Fan Pier is a fun place to visit and take in the views no matter the season. If you want some truly fantastic views, considering taking in the skyline with an evening stroll right along the water. As the city’s new waterfront, it’s the perfect backdrop for a romantic date in the city.
Commonwealth Avenue Magnolias
If you can wait a few months, Commonwealth Avenue Mall is extremely picturesque in the spring. That’s when the magnolia trees start blooming, creating a romantic backdrop for couples in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood. You can also check out some of the statues and nearby buildings along the way.
Kelleher Rose Garden
Another picturesque spot in the spring and summer is Kelleher Rose Garden. Stroll through some of the rose-covered archways in the garden, as you hold hands and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The rose garden is open every day of the week in the Back Bay Fens. It may be just minutes away from some of Boston’s biggest attractions but truly feels like you’ve discovered a secret garden once you’re inside.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
It’s hard to surpass the romantic vibe of Isabella Steward Gardner Museum. The fragrant courtyard is truly beautiful. If you plan your date for a Thursday night, the museum is open late into the evening.
Boston Harbor Cruise
Another great way to take in Boston is to get out on the water. If you’re planning for two, why not schedule a Boston Harbor sunset cruise? No matter where you go, however, there are plenty of things do and experience in Boston, especially if you have someone special on your side.
