Places

Short stop in: Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US and is a hotbed of history – but these days it’s a perfect place for the modern business traveler to kick back and relax, with great food and fun on offer.

Workout

For a unique workout sure to give you “spaghetti legs,” head to Harvard Stadium – the oldest in the US – for the Full Tour stairs workout, which involves 31 levels across 37 sections, with stairs of varying depth. Both professional athletes and keen amateurs have tackled the stadium workout since it opened in 1903.

Breakfast

Bostonians love a good diner and one of the best is Mike’s City Diner, a throwback to the glory days, with its 1950s décor and classic diner fare. The pancakes are said to be among the best in the city, although you can’t go wrong with the bacon and eggs special.

Historic Power lunch

Repeatedly named Boston’s best steakhouse in a city that loves to indulge in thick cuts of prime beef, Abe & Louie’s is where Warren Buffett is rumored to lunch when he’s in town. The dark mahogany walls and soft leather booths of this Back Bay eatery offer movers and shakers a refined atmosphere in which to hammer out high stakes deals.

Take in the Bosox

Sports-mad Boston is home to the legendary Red Sox baseball team and while you might not be able to score seats at Fenway Park proper, you can still enjoy a game at Bleacher Bar, located directly underneath the bleachers at Fenway with a huge window looking directly onto centerfield.

Classic Charm

One of the oldest parts of the city, -picturesque Beacon Hill is an ideal place to explore the city’s colonial architecture and the many charming boutiques. Once you’re refreshed, grab a table at Antonio’s, a local trattoria serving up some of the best Italian food in Boston.
