Hello! My hubby and I are in our mid-30's and are coming to Boston for the Labour day long weekend - taking a trip for the first time without our kids in tow! Any advice on our itinerary would be appreciated!
My top question: I looked up fireworks for the long weekend and they are happening on Thursday night (??!) - will there be anymore on Sunday night? Do stores and restaurants close or have reduced hours or do they have extended hours because of the long weekend?
Also - are Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market the same?
We are planning on buying the 7-day MBTA pass but are aiming to walk most of the time
Not going to Fenway - my hubby wants to "save" it for any future boys trips. Unfortunately the Jays are playing the day we leave so we will just miss them!
Friday 6pm arrival at Logan - take Silver line to Renaissance Marriott
Walk along harborfront for dessert at Bova’s Bakery open 24 hours (cannoli) take bus back if tired
Breakfast 9:00 (Scali Café or Flour Bakery or Wheelhouse) en route to walking to Segway
Segway tour (2 hr) 10:30-1:00 (Freedom Trail) *Note: I have read the reviews about mostly travelling on the roads and we are ok with that. First time doing Segway but I think we will be ok.
Lunch at Faneuil Hall + walk around + see street performers (1-3)
Breakfast (Flour Bakery or…??)
Lunch - check out Alive and Kicking for a lobster roll or Legal Sea Foods
SOWA market and Newbury St and walk back up to Boston Common
Dinner (potentially sunset cruise on sailboat) - any recommendations? Pick dinner based on Friday's list
Go back along Freedom Trail for anything you want to re-visit (i.e.: Christopher Columbus Park)
Airport by 4:15
Thank you for looking this over!
