Are you looking for a fun Boston Date Idea that doesn’t involve Beer?

Maybe you’re on a mission to reduce that winter beer-belly that’s been comfortably resting atop your belt? Maybe you haven’t exactly mastered the whole “know your limits” thing yet?  

Whatever the reason, the beautiful city of Boston has more to offer than just bars full of everyone’s favorite Boston Lager. Gone are your days of beer pong and pub crawls. Say no more to wine tastings and vodka samplings!  It’s time to reach beyond your young, alcohol-dependent dating days. You’re older, wiser and ready for things that you’ll remember in the morning.

So bring your bae on an alcohol-free date and show ‘em that Bostonians are good at more than just drinking, damn it, and that you’re a wicked good time even without that giggle juice.


Sunset Skies and Sober Eyes

Feast your eyes on the beauty of the Boston harbor beneath a candy-colored sky. Instead of holing up in a dimly lit pub, set sail with your boo and bask in the glory of the wind, salt and sea. Learn interesting facts about the different boating vessels while you cruise past America’s oldest commissioned sailing ship.

With the setting sun above you, you won’t find a better place to get cozy outside the busy Boston streets and the buzzing Boston pubs.
