So Alaina’s Boston Weekend Guide: Day 1

Hi new friends + KiKiMac readers!  I am so excited to be here guest posting on KiKiMac today.  A couple of months ago I hosted her for a guest post on my blog, So Alaina, and I am so happy to be here doing the same for her!

I’m a Boston Blogger, and ohmygoodness do I love my city.  There is SO much to do and see and eat and drink there.  I’m here to share with you a little peek of what Boston has to offer, and throw some recommendations your way should you ever come visit our little corner of New England.

day one.south endMy hubs + I live in the South End [not to be confused with Southie, a close but very different neighborhood with a deceptively close sounding name], which is chock full of great bars and restaurants.  I am not even the least bit ashamed to say that one of my favorite things to do in Boston is EAT.

*Alaina has created a fun guide for an entire weekend, so be sure to check back and read what’s on her list for days two and three!
