We had our small company outing here today. As usual, very relaxing and really good food. A short 30 minute ride from Long Wharf past Logan Airport, South Boston and some other of the Boston Harbor Islands. It's quiet out there, only the entertainment you bring with you....lawn games available and some sporting equipment but mostly just a relaxing place... More

I went there as part of a group social event for a conference. We were swarmed by the largest and most aggressive mosquitoes I have ever encountered. My wife and I were bitten a couple of dozen times between us in the space of 15 minutes. When we went to ask the staff for mosquito repellent, they already had bottles... More

My company hosted its summer outing on Thomson Island for the first time this past summer and it was a great destination. Plenty of seating, views, hikes, adequate restroom facilities and a nice little cruise there and back.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
