Besides being the birth place of the American Revolution (or close enough), Boston boasts at least a little bit of pretty much everything, making it an incredibly versatile bachelorette location. Here are the details from Chrissy for the bachelorette we planned for her friend Lilli:
Lilli lives in Boston, as do most of the girls who came to the weekend -- so it was the most convenient marketplace - plus it was full of the activities, lounge-y bars, and great ethnic food that Lilli was looking for.
Where we stayed:
At home or with friends who lived in Boston.
What it cost:
The weekend cost around $200 per person: both fun and economical!
- Housing: $0 (stayed with friends)
- Transportation: $50
- Food & drinks: $120
- Activities: $30
What we did:
- We had lunch at the Courtyard Restaurant in the Boston Public Library. (Side note from Lauren: One of the prettiest places you'd never think of for lunch.)
- We spent the day catching up and exploring the city.
- We made our way to dinner at Orinoco, a delicious, casual Venezuelan eatery, followed by drinks at the Rooftop @ Revere - a great rooftop bar with a tropical setting.
- We started the day with brunch at 75 on Liberty Wharf, enjoying the great food and amazing view of Boston Harbor.
- We then kayaked over to Kendall Square in nearby Cambridge to make our dinner reservation at Oleana, a wonderful Turkish restaurant.
- We cabbed downtown to get drinks at Wink & Nod, a cool speakeasy with awesome drinks.
- We wrapped up the weekend with a picnic in the beautiful Boston Public Garden.
