re: The Definitive Boston Thread
Nice time to drive around the city - zero traffic. Just hope she doesn't want to check out any local bars or restaurants.

re: The Definitive Boston Thread
That’s a pretty nice area, she should enjoy it and that’s not a bad price

I am coming up next Thursday. I believe we are doing 3 days in Boston and 3 days in Cape Cod area. Any updated tips/advice in Boston? Our travel typically involved picking an area and eating/walking/drinking our way through it. Definitely interested in a few breweries on your list.

We are currently in Phase 2, Part 2. This includes the opening of breweries, wineries, and distilleries, but NOT bars. Though any bar that serves food is allowed to be open.

Restaurants are open for outdoor dining and indoor dining at 25%. Some places are walk in only, others are reservation only, and some are mixed. So I recommend if there's a place you're interested in that you call ahead and ask.

Governor Baker is supposed to announce the start of Phase 3 this week, but it's hard to know exactly when it will begin. This will include the opening of things like museums and theaters.

The Freedom Trail is obviously still walkable, but I'm unclear as to whether or not you can actually go into the churches and other sites.

Happy to give brewery and food recs. Just know that the Boston you're going to see next week is going to look different than it normally would this time of year.

What part of the city will you be staying in?

Would greatly appreciate any recs you have. We are either staying at Intercontinental (Wharf) or Kimpton Marlowe (east Cambridge). Which would you choose?

We understand what we are getting in to regarding COVID. We have already canceled 3 trips and just ready to go somewhere.

What about Cape Cod recs? We are mid 30's couple. Would be happ with anywhere that we could jog/bike in morning and eat and drink around in afternoon.

re: The Definitive Boston Thread
Depends on price, but all things being equal I'd say the Intercontinental. Just a better location than east Cambridge IMO.

Where in the Cape will you be? I'm honestly not an expert on the Cape, but I do know that they've been opening up things for tourism the last few weeks.

I definitely get just needing to go somewhere. We lost trips to Mexico City and India this year. Assuming COVID doesn't come back with a vengeance in the fall we're looking to go to Carmel, CA in early October.

I go every summer and have stayed/visited
almost the entire area.TONS of jogging/biking options.One I would highly recommend is a bike path from North Falmouth to Woods Hole LINK

Not sure where you're staying but the Cape
is very user friendly to joggers and bikers.

BTW don't waste your time visiting Martha's Vineyard. Between parking and taking the ferry over and back,you'll waste half your day and tour busses are crowded and sweaty.

Highly recommend visiting/staying in Chatham. The beaches and the town are beautiful. Wild Goose Tavern is a great place to grab lunch and a drink and it's right on main street.

I would also recommend visiting all the small towns around the Cape including: Falmouth,Mashpee,Cotuit, Hyannis and Bar stable and a day trip along 6A from Chatham to the Sagamore bridge...great scenery and very historical.BTW, don't waste your time going to P-town.Pain in the arse drive and it's not worth it.

Take in a Cape Cod league game if you get chance.Lots of future MLB players and the games are free.

BTW,I'm going in August and have no idea what's open and not.

Thanks for the Cape Cod info we will look at Chatham. I need to see if the league is playing.

re: The Definitive Boston Thread
They canceled the baseball league this summer

All the little towns are neat and pretty close
Chatham is cool
We stayed in Hyannis that’s where ferries run to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard
It’s hard to get around both places unless you rent a car
Yarmouth boardwalk is nice
Dennisport had some nice restaurants on water
The woods hole area is nice too

If you eat at the Goose make sure you ask to sit on the patio.They don't take reservations but they will do call ahead seating.
