Welcome toBoston! After being picked up at the airport by the shuttle, you will begin your night at Smith & Wollensky's at the Boston Atlantic Wharf. Located right between the Rose Kennedy Greenway and the historic Boston Harbor, Smith & Wollensky's offers an amazing view of the water. This steakhouse, fully equipped with a bar, lounge, open kitchen and outdoor patio is huge but seems cozy and inviting with the dark wood and leather interior. Locals swear by the USDA prime steaks and top-notch seafood and returning visitors make it a tradition to stop back and enjoy a steak dinner and indulge in their extensive wine list.

While your luggage is delivered to your room at the Intercontinental Boston, start to walk or take a cab to the TD Garden for the Boston Bruins Game! As an original six franchise you will be immersed for a night, in the rich history and tradition that goes with being a bruins fan. Taking a picture in front of the memorable Bobby Orr statue located right outside the Garden, will prove to everyone you show, you were connected to one of the most celebrated moments in Boston sports history. This is only the start to your firsthand experience of what it's like to watch a game at "The Hub of Hockey."  If you work up an appetite during the game, be sure to get a slice of "the world's best pizza" across the street. After the game, catch your shuttle back to the Intercontinental and rest up for the next day full of activities.

Day 2:

Dine at Miel "Brasserie Provencale" for breakfast and wake up with a hot cup of fresh coffee and a French breakfast. Miel uses the freshest organic ingredients and unique herbs that provide for an energizing breakfast that will get you ready to go for the day. Miel is not to be missed-on a nice day enjoy the outdoor seating that overlooks the Fort Point Channel and catch a sea breeze while you do so.

The next segment of your day involves taking an Urban AdvenTour, which conveniently leaves right from the hotel. The Urban AdvenTour is a great bicycle tour of the city from an overlook. If you are looking to see lots of the city in just a couple of days, going by bicycle is the most practical and healthy way. Not only are you able to see the sights Boston has to offer, but you can go at your own pace and stop at places that intrigue you.

Your group may not be up for a sporting event two nights in a row, but the Fenway Park Tour is a great way to get a thorough look at "America's Most Beloved Ballpark." Built in 1912, Fenway Park is Major League Baseball's oldest stadium which, in turn, makes it one of the most beloved by baseball fans from all over.  The enthusiastic tour guides will give a behind the scenes look at what Red Sox Nation is all about. See Pesky's Pole and marvel at the iconic Green Monster, standing a whopping 37 feet and 2 inches tall. Fenway's family friendly atmosphere and loyal fans will deliver a memorable day at the ball park every time you visit.

Return to the hotel before heading out for your night which will begin with the Beer Tour by Boston Brews. Boston Brew Tours provides insight into Boston's top breweries.Boston Brew Tours provides round trip transportation for you and your group, allowing for an enjoyable night touring the nano-breweries in Boston with tastings and an expert analysis of at least 15 different beers, finishing up with a filling dinner at Area Four.

After finishing your Beer Tour, get on the ferry and sail off to the Boston Harbor Islands for a New England clambake on Spectacle Island. Get a feel for authenticity of Boston seafood by a classic clambake by Summer Shack. This is a perfect place to enjoy the Fresh taste of a Boston Lobster roll while taking in the ocean view the season has to offer.

Cape Cod, Captain John Boats is famous for its fruitful deep sea fishing for all adults, whether you have experience or not. Catch fish like Cod, Pollock, Haddock, Mackerel, Flounder, Striped Bass and even Bluefish. If you have eaten at any seafood restaurant in Boston, you can now understand why our restaurants such as Legal Sea Foods take pride in having the freshest fish! Head back and shower up before a leisurely lunch at the hotel (or maybe now you have increase your hankering for a Legals lobster roll or clam chowder!).

Be sure to make it back to the airport with plenty of time, that way you can find the perfect souvenir to bring home. There is a souvenir for everyone in the airport but, if for some reason you can't find what you're looking for, use that as an excuse to stay in Boston for another night!
