While in the early 1620's it was named Naumkeag, or "Fishing Place" by Native Americans, in 1629 renamed Salem for Shalom, the Hebrew word for peace... Irony. With 375 years of history under its belt, Salem welcomes millions of visitors year round and hundreds of thousands in the month of October.

Possibly the most fun and interactive learning experience of one of the most notorious historic events in the history of the United States, The Salem Witch Trials.

3. Discover the fun history of Salem. Visit the Salem Willows Park and Arcade and step right back in time. Taste the history of ice cream at the home of the first ice cream cone in America and take a round-round-ride on a working Carousel built in 1866.

4. Visit the oldest surviving 17th century wooden mansion in New England, The House of the Seven Gables, made immortal by writer Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel of the same name.

Theatre, Shows & things to do in Boston near our Boutique Hotel

The Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts is only a short walk away, making it the ideal spot to catch a show while visiting our Boutique Bed and Breakfast in the South End of Boston. The Pavillion is  adjacent to the Cyclorama, one of the most notorious historical art buildings, which was built in 1884 to house a cycloramic painting of the Battle of Gettysburg. With 3 theaters under its roof, there is sure to be something going on that will get your attention.

Coming up in September, "Next Fall" , presented by the SpeakEasy Stage Company will certainly be a hot seat to come by. The New York Times called it “The funniest heartbreaker in town” and we can't wait to learn about trying times of the relationship between Luke and Adam, a devout christian and a non-believer who have been together for 4 years.
On October 14, the Huntington Theater Company takes the stage when they present "Before I leave you". This very Boston comedy follows 4 local friends going through too many changes in too little time.

Before October is over, the SpeakEasy Stage Company returns with a play about the ageless TV and Big Screen character, the Nun, with "Divine Sister". Watch as this Mother Superior deals with the trials and temptations of life and love that try to keep her away from fulfilling her vows.

There will be plenty of opportunities to catch a show before the year is over, and with fall fast approaching, you'll be sure to stay warm inside the theater. These will be great conversation starters and topics to bring over to our Boutique Bed and Breakfast and discuss over a glass of wine in our library or parlor.

Boston Bed and Breakfast Top 5 Lobster rolls in Boston

Travel to Boston and New England in the summer and there is you will know it is lobster season. Lobster season means it is time for a Lobster Roll. Undoubtedly, lobster has got to be the best food served between buns. It is convenient, portable, colorful, affordable and delicious, and these are the top places in town to grab one (or two).

Right on the Waterfront on Fort Point Landing sits the The Barking Crab. A very family friendly restaurant that serves two kinds of lobster rolls: The Boston Lobster Roll which is served with mayo and The Naked Lobster Roll, tossed with drawn butter.

At Turner Fisheries the lobster roll makes an appearance on their lunch menu and it makes a long lasting impression. The perfect excuse for a quick bite or light lunch.

Belle Isle Seafood is just on the other side of the Charles River and gets many 5 star reviews and their lobster rolls are described as "epic", "none better" and "VERY GENEROUS". But wait! You CAN ask for more from this place... You can bring your own drinks! (Beer and wine only though)

B&G Oysters serves a much more sophisticated version of the lobster roll and it is part of their classics and take-out menu.

James Hook & Co. is right on the waterfront and has been a Boston staple since 1925. Some will argue they carry the absolute best seafood in New England. If while in Boston you can't order a lobster roll for take out do not worry, they'll ship overnight it right to your door!!

If after having your portable lobster meal you crave a water adventure, head back to our Boston Boutique Hotel in the South End of Boston and take the sun, sights and sounds of the beautiful city of Boston. From our rooftop deck and hot tub, you'll get a 360 degree view of our neighborhood, the city and beyond. Loose track of time and unwind like just like the locals do.
