Boston is great for history lovers, sports fans and foodies alike. A great walking city, get your kicks on and let Boston local, Maneesh Sethi, founder of Pavlok (a habit forming wearable device), guide you around the city with his insider scoops below on Boston’s best tapas, jails-cum-hotels, and marketplaces.
Toro – It’s not always easy to get a seat at this Barcelona-style tapas restaurant, but it’s worth the wait. The cuisine is delectable (think small, shareable plates of seafood, meat and veggies).
The Liberty Hotel – Until 1990, this hotel was known as Charles Street Jail, where some of Boston’s most notorious criminals were kept. In recent decades it has been converted into a luxury hotel, and it’s pumping every night.
Boston Public Library – A ton of history, free daily tours and beautiful architecture… It’s easy to spend a day here.
Salem, Massachusetts – Famous for the Salem witch trials of the 1600s, you’ll find several historical museums here – and it’s only 30 minutes from downtown Boston by public transport.
Insider info – Faneuil Hall, a trendy urban marketplace, is the seventh most-visited tourist attraction in the world – it has more visitors than the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower!
