This is a super cute, but still residential part of the Boston area. It has many shops and restaurants around and not to mention some luxury gyms like Barrys and Equinox.
I know this is technically not Boston, but just an hour drive and it's kind of like the Hamptons of Boston. The nice beach, the gorgeous sunset, and delicious seafood.
This is a super touristy activity, but if it is your first time in the Boston area I recommend checking it out. You will learn so much about Boston and its history.
This is a super cute area where you can walk around and admire the beautiful streets, especially in the fall. Newbury also has many shops and restaurants.
