Like some variety when you go out to eat? Time Out Market Boston has you covered. Boston's first contemporary culinary hub boasts a tantalizing variety of curated food offerings, two top-notch bars and lots more — and everything's available to go. There are enhanced safety measures and a 6,000 sq ft, sun-splashed patio, but if you want the full-on picnic experience, you can plop down on The Green at 401 Park, the comfy lawn out in front of the Market, or just take your treats on a short walk to the Back Bay Fens or Comm Ave Mall.
Here in Boston, we don't have too many months of favorable weather, which is why we never take a beautiful day for granted. While the city boasts plenty of great restaurants with outdoor seating, there's something wonderfully old school about going on a picnic. The best part? You don't need a reservation—just grab a blanket, pack up some food or order takeout, and find your way to one of the most peaceful picnic spots in Boston. You'll find them hiding in Boston parks and gardens, outside of cultural landmarks and along the waterfront. The fresh air and city views are on the house!
