Boston isn’t generally associated with being a place filled with ‘romantic ventures’. However, if you look hard enough there are plenty of things that you can do in Boston with your girlfriend that is going to have her ‘tingling’ with feelings of love for you. Let’s take a little look at just a few of them (there are plenty more, but these are my highlights!)
Perhaps my favorite is heading onto the ‘Spirit of Boston’ and taking a cruise around the harbor. This is probably one of the most romantic things to do in Boston, especially if you pick a cruise during Sunset. You are literally going to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful sights in Boston. The two hour cruise includes a beautiful buffet dinner, cash bars and of course, a DJ to dance the night away with your lover. This leaves from the Commonwealth Pier in the Seaport District.
A cheap way to entertain your girlfriend (and yet still romantic!) is to head to the famous Swan Boats in Public Garden. You are once again surrounded by ‘lush’ surroundings, and this is a great time in which you can spend ‘alone’ time with your girlfriend. Plenty of people have popped the question on these swan boats. Perhaps this is something to consider here?
If you are your lover are into live music, then there are plenty of places to enjoy that throughout Boston. One of the most popular by far is the ‘House of Blues’. They have a number of different acts from many different genres playing, so don’t forget to look at the ‘bill’ a little bit in advance to ensure that you are both going to like what is on.
Boston Common is one of the most popular spots in the city. Whilst it may not be the most ‘extravagant’ date in the world, your girlfriend will absolutely love a picnic here. I have honestly had some of my best dates in Boston right on this common, one of the best places to sit is by Frog Pond, although anywhere is good.
How about making your girlfriend feel like a true Cinderella and take her on a horse drawn carriage ride? There are numerous ‘tours’ available, varying in length from 15 to 60 minutes. All of the carriages leave from Faneuil Hall, and you will be touring some of the most popular areas in Downtown Boston. It really is incredibly romantic late at night when the city is lit up.
Of course, you could always just walk through the beautiful city of Boston, hand in hand and look at the many sights. This is just as romantic, all your girlfriend will care about is that she is there with you.
This is just a small highlight of some of the fantastic things that you can do with your girlfriend in Boston. Remember, this list isn’t going to be ideal for everybody. In order to truly impress your girlfriend, why not choose something that she likes, and you know she likes? This will show that you listen, and of course, be a truly romantic time for the two of you.
