These 11 Romantic Spots In Boston Are Perfect To Take That Special Someone
If you’re looking for – or have found – love in Boston, you may find yourself running low on date ideas after a while. However, there are lots of romantic places in the city, some of which are a little unexpected. From strolls across converted estates to spots that offer unparalleled city views, these 11 places will set the mood for your next big date:
1. Savor the skyline from Lookout Rooftop Bar.
For a casual date that's sure to wow, head to the Lookout Rooftop Bar at the Envoy Hotel. Once there, admire the spectacular city views and relax by a fire pit. This is a drinks-only establishment - if things are going well, you can then head downstairs to the restaurant or stroll a quarter mile over to Menton for some fine dining. Lookout Rooftop Bar is located at 70 Sleeper Street in Boston.
2. Wander through Larz Anderson Park.
When we see opulent estates on shows like
Downton Abbey they look imposing, but also quite romantic. You can capture some of that style with a stroll through Larz Anderson Park. This converted estate features green space that affords excellent city views, a charming gazebo next to the pond, and - in winter - an outdoor ice skating rink. You'll find it at 23 Newton Street in Brookline.
3. Travel to France.
Well, transport your taste buds there at least, with a meal at Deuxave. French cuisine is synonymous with romance and the divine food paired with attentive service make this spot a winner. Deuxave is located at 371 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston.
4. Marvel at this courtyard.
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is rightfully known for its incredible art collection. Compared to other museums, this one offers an appealing feeling of intimacy but, in terms of romantic spots, you can't beat its courtyard! The museum is located at 25 Evans Way in Boston.
5. Sail along the Charles on a gondola.
Did you know that you can take a gondola ride right here in Boston? Enjoy all the romance of Italy without the price tag or the jet lag.

9. Survey the city from on-high.
You can almost forget the surrounding tourists once you gaze out at Boston from the vantage point of the Skywalk Observatory.

10. Skulk into a speakeasy.
There's a speakeasy in Boston that delivers a luxe 1920s vibe along with craft cocktails and plenty of vintage décor. This makes the illicit thrill of sneaking booze during Prohibition come to life... without breaking the law. You'll find
at 11 Beacon Street in Boston.
