Run a DIY Beer Mile (or Five)
We’re not suggesting you travel just to chug beers on a track and run laps. Rather, take a jaunt (a walk, really) through central Boston, which has the most dense bars-per-square-mile neighborhood in America. You can stop to drink every 100 feet — and there are 5,280 feet in a mile. Start in Langone Park, site of bocce courts, and head toward Copp’s Hill Terrace. From there, head toward the Freedom Trail and turn inland to pass through Paul Revere Mall. Drop in for a drink at Rocco’s on Atlantic and then the Four Winds, or take a spin through Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park and either hit bars in the Faneuil Hall area or head back toward Langone with another quick stop at Rocco’s.
For breakfast, hit Theo’s Cozy Corner Restaurant (small, busy, and delicious) for breakfast, then head to the Tufts University library. Climb the outdoor ladder to the roof and take in the Boston skyline. On your way out of town, make sure you have time to spare to stop and stretch your legs at Boston Bowl (Dorchester, on 93 outside Boston; bostonbowl.com). It’s open all 24 hours of the day and has a brewpub, Deadwood Brewery.Back to top
