Here’s How To Make A Winter’s Day Of The Boston Seaport
The Superette district of the Boston Seaport has adopted the tagline, “A destination for the seriously delightful. Discover Boston Seaport’s newest shopping experience.” Now with over 25 stores, restaurants, and entertainment spaces within this area, the Superette has become one of the more attractive spots in this area of the city. However, with the continued development, this is just one of the areas for people to explore.
This is especially true starting this time of year when the Snowport and Holiday Market are also open. So, with all of these great options in neighborhood, here is how you make a great winter’s day of the Boston seaport.
One of the best things about this region of the city is how accessible it is. Sure, there’s the ability to drive right in, but parking is not always easy to find (or cheap). The commuter ferry brings you right to Long Wharf or Rowes Wharf however, and then it is just a short walk over the bridge. In addition, the commuter rail into south station is also within walking distance.
Let It Snow… Port
The shopping and restaurants will always be there. But the winter adventure spaces won’t. The Snowport opened last week and runs through the month of December. The Snowport is where you will find curling lanes, holiday-themed food carts, and the infamous Betty The Yetti. The tree lighting is on December 1. After you get a high-five or candy cane from Betty The Yetti, do yourself a favor and grab a bowl of the cheese wheel pasta.
The Snowport is the perfect winter Seaport appetizer spot, in every way. From hot chocolate to the pasta-on-the-run, this is the perfect spot to kick off your Seaport day. It also contains the Holiday Market. This is where you will find homemade crafts, holiday ornaments, and gift stations. Specifically, the Holiday market is located at 100 Seaport Blvd.
By this point, you’ve already worked hard, earning that cheese wheel pasta, washed down with sweets, by walking up and down the lanes of the Holiday Market. It’s time for a drink. Head to the holiday tent area and grab one at the Jingle Bar. It’s one of four holiday-themed bars in place through the end of the year.
There are so many great options here that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. There have been a bunch of great new restaurants that have opened in the Superette section. This includes Borrachito Taqueria & Spirits. If you want to get into a quieter section for the time being, Del Frisco’s steakhouse is just a mile down the boulevard, and has stunning harbor views.
But Then Head Back Up To The Action
Mia’s Brooklyn Bakery in the Superette is new and has amazing banana cream pie. Post-meal, you get back into the adventure at Puttshack. This is an indoor tech-infused mini golf area. Yes, they always serve drinks.
A Nightcap In An Igloo
One last toast before you go. The Igloo Bar at the Envoy is atop the hotel. You have to reserve an Igloo in advance, but they can accommodate six people. Grab a peppermint, holiday-themed craft beverage and give cheers to having completed the perfect winter’s day in the Boston Seaport.
