Plan a Date

A year ago, I gave Neal a Boston Travel Guide that included highlighted sections, notes from me, and 12 date cards (read: pre-planned dates!).  Not only did it help him out, it let us explore parts of the city we live in. Playing tourist is always fun. Here are some of the dates in our book:
  • Go Boston!: Have dinner at Neptune Oyster in the North End before heading over to TD Garden to watch a Bruins Game
  • Get Intellectual: Check out the Harvard Museum of Natural History. When you're done viewing the glass flowers and the dinosaurs, head to Formaggio Kitchen and sample some cheese. Don't forget to grab a bottle of wine and some extra cheese for more sampling at home!
  • Venture Out: When the weather warms up, pack a picnic lunch and visit the deCordova Museum and Sculpture park. You can canoodle and enjoy the grounds, then take a free guided tour of the museum after your picnic. 
  • Be an Art Lover: Attend a First Friday event at the Institute of Contemporary Art. On the first Friday of each month, the ICA host a 21+ event with a guest DJ, live performances, gallery talks, specialty drinks, and small plates to snack on. You'll enjoy perusing the unique exhibits, and the views of Boston Harbor can't be beat. 
What's your favorite place to take a date in the city? No matter where you go, you have to look the part. I've been pinning some fun date-night-worthy outfits on Pinterest, and this is one of my current favorites. It's perfect for winter- feminine yet covered up so you don't freeze!
