Embrace the Most Romantic Things to Do in Boston

Planning a couple's getaway to Boston? With a spirited, youthful energy and timeless historic charm, Boston is a treasure chest waiting to be explored. Discover romance around every corner, from the graceful swan boats in Boston Common to the vibrant lights of the Theater District. Feel inspired by rooftop views at a chic cocktail lounge and be mesmerized by tropical fish in the New England Aquarium. Enjoy outdoor performances and indoor fireplaces. Most of all, relish quality time together as you explore all the romantic things to do in Boston.


Be Wowed by Boston's Creative Scene in the Theater District

Spend a night on the town with an astounding level of live entertainment in Boston's Theater District, located just steps away from our Downtown hotel. Explore a cluster of stately venues like the historic Boston Opera House and the Cutler Majestic Theatre. Broadway musicals, symphonies, opera, and dance performances are always on tap – but you'll also find more casual options like comedy shows and music. Head out early to visit one of the neighborhood's trendy, rustic-chic bistros or stay late and turn things up at the nightclub. Feel the buzzing energy of this cultural hotspot.


Go for a Leisurely Stroll in Boston Common & the Public Garden

Sometimes the simplest pleasures can be the most romantic. Spend a little quality time together with a slow stroll through beautiful Boston Common and the Public Garden. Situated side by side (and right by our hotel), these two urban green spaces offer endless enjoyment to locals and travelers alike. Sunny days are best for visit; in spring and summer you can book a ride on one of the famous swan boats (in operating since 1877). In winter, go ice skating on the Boston Common Frog Pond and enjoy a romantic glide around the ice.  


Get a New Perspective on the City: Tour Boston Harbor on a Sightseeing Cruise

Set sail on a boat trip around historic Boston Harbor that will give you a whole new way to see the city. From the shimmering skyline to the famous lighthouses, a sightseeing cruise showcases the beautiful New England coastline. Boston's history is interwoven with the sea and maritime culture, so a boat ride is the perfect way to understand the current city on a deeper level. Numerous companies offer sightseeing cruises of Boston Harbor, along with whale-watching trips, brunch cruises, and sunset sailings.


Sip Artisan Cocktails at a Rooftop Bar Overlooking the Boston Skyline

Find a cozy nook where you can truly relax and savor the moment. Raise a glass to true love as you survey the sparkling city skyline at Rooftop@Revere, our exclusive rooftop bar and lounge. Look out over the Back Bay from seven stories above the city. Indulge in creative cocktails, fine wines, and craft microbrews. Feeling hungry? You'll also find an imaginative menu of authentic New England cuisine with a modern twist.


Discover the Beautiful Underwater Magic at New England Aquarium

Immerse yourself in the graceful world of floating seadragons, striped lionfish, and playful sea lions at this world-class aquarium. Located right on the Boston waterfront, the New England Aquarium will awaken your inner child with a sense of wonder and delight. Stroll hand-in-hand through the dark exhibits with a lighthearted adventure to the undersea realm. Be sure to check out the penguins and sea turtles!


Enjoy a Midsummer Romance at Shakespeare on the Common

No one could tell a love story like the Bard, and performances of his plays still set the standard for romance on stage. Every summer, Boston Common hosts free open-air Shakespeare performances at the Parkman Bandstand. Plays take place every Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and on Sundays at 7:00 p.m. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket and toast to true love through the ages with Shakespeare favorites like Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing.
