Urban Honeymoon - Boston

Guest Author - Kara Williams

If your honeymoon plans call for a stay in this historic Massachusetts capital city, consider this advice on where to stay, where to eat and what to do:

Where to stay
Luxury properties dot Boston�s downtown and harborfront area, including the Park Plaza Hotel & Towers, Four Seasons, Hyatt Regency and Westin Copley Place. But history buffs, and honeymooners who appreciate the finer things, would enjoy the venerable Omni Parker House, dating back to 1855.

But there�s nothing old-fashioned about the property�s accommodations: modern amenities like high-speed internet connections and plush linens are at home next to heirloom furnishings in each of the 550 rooms and suites. Its Beacon Hill location right on the Freedom Trail (see below), adds to the historic feel. Dine at Parker�s Restaurant, where the Boston Cream Pie was invented!

Where to eat
You can�t leave Boston without sampling a crock of clam �chowdah.� The place to order clam or seafood chowder is the city�s longest operating restaurant, the Union Oyster House, housed in a building dating back to pre-Revolutionary War days. It�s been serving up seafood since 1826. Statesman Daniel Webster used to belly up to the bar here.

Other recommendations: enjoy cocktail hour at the Four Seasons� contemporary and upscale Bristol Bar; dine on authentic Italian food in Boston�s Little Italy in the North End; try different take-out at Faneuil Hall�s Quincy Market (pastries, sausages, ice cream, cookies, salads and much more).

What to do
Learning about our nation�s history can actually be a lot of fun in Boston with many interactive tours and attractions. For example, walk the 2.5-mile Freedom Trail that snakes its way around downtown Boston. Costumed guides share the area�s history as you make stops at 16 different historic sites and monuments, including Paul Revere�s House dating back to 1680; the Old North Church, where lanterns hung to signal �The British are Coming!� and the Old South Meeting House, where colonists gathered just before ceremoniously dumping crates of tea into Boston Harbor.

The USS Constitution, nicknamed �Old Ironsides,� is the oldest commissioned warship still afloat today. That means after more than 200 years of service, including a stint in the War of 1812, she remains an active-duty Navy ship. The ship is docked in Boston Harbor, and guided tours, again by costumed docents, are offered every 30 minutes through the warm-weather months.

Boston Duck Tours give visitors a unique view of downtown Boston by land and by sea�in bright yellow, amphibious World War II vehicles. Fun and funny ConDUCKtors give a spirited narration of the historic buildings, churches and monuments you�ll pass�sharing insider�s tidbits along the way. You�ll also splash into the Charles River for a scenic view of the Boston and Cambridge skyline.
