Boston is a tourist’s dream. It’s old, it’s historic, and it’s unimaginably pretty. As such, it’s loaded with tourist traps. Most aren’t worth your hard-earned coin, but some are actually very decent to extremely good.
This guide is a mix of old Boston classics and hip new hangouts that fall under the “tourist trap” umbrella by some definitions — but are also worth a visit, whether you’re a tourist or a local. (This map covers only Boston proper — not nearby neighbors such as Cambridge and Somerville — and includes restaurants, markets, and food halls.)
Head to the North End for pizza cooked in a 130-year-old oven, and then head to SoWa for some culture and outdoor eating and drinking. Strap your fanny packs on and get to it.
