You may have heard of this quaint little burg called San Francisco. It’s our hometown, and we love helping tourists, business travelers, and new locals alike settle in. While the city’s reputation, beauty, and businesses may have caused local prices to spike, it’s most definitely a must-see, must-stay, must-feast stop on any serious itinerary. And it doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. If you swing through one of its more unique neighborhoods — like the Mission District — you'll have a blast without breaking the bank.
Fall is here, and along with it come the fall activities you’ve been looking forward to all summer. Boston is a fantastic place to experience fall and find fun things to do with those cool-weather weekends. Whether you’re interested in outdoor events, foliage, or food, you’ll always be able to find something to do. Without further ado, here are our top 10 fall activities you got to try while you're in Boston.
We’re often reminded to take a break from our overactive lifestyles. In fact, your eyes might have glazed over a bit as soon as we started talking about it - mostly because you hear about it constantly! But when is the last time you took a quick vacation instead? One of our favorite self-care practices around our office is going on weekend getaways. We find it’s a great way to reconnect with ourselves so we can return to work refreshed and motivated.
After watching the mercury climb for months, it's no wonder people await the end of summer so eagerly. We may not exactly be excited for the dark and cold winter months on the horizon, but it's OK. We have the opportunity to enjoy the excellent autumn weather first. The arrival of fall every year is heralded by both the changing colors of the foliage and the annual rebirth of the pumpkin spice craze. Where the heat and humidity of summer can often keep people indoors, fall is the time to get out, enjoy the crisp fresh air, and enjoy yourself with autumn activities.
