After learning how to sell and integrate cloud into your business at the Cloud Partners conference, what better way to spend the weekend than by exploring one of our nation’s greatest cities? If you’re staying the weekend following Cloud Partners, you’re in luck. Boston is home to some of the best dining, activities, and sights in the world. What are you waiting for? Here are some of our picks for places to eat, things to do and see while you are in town.
Places to eat
A must-visit splurge for anyone seeking a proper introduction to Boston seafood is Island Creek Oyster Bar. It has a pristine farm-fresh raw bar, and it is just a 15 minute walk (less than 2 miles) from the Hynes Convention Center. Due to the popularity, you should try to arrive early, between 12pm and 6pm, or you will have to deal with a long wait from people eager to try this local favorite.
If you’re on a budget, Boston has a wide selection of choices to cater to any palate. If you’re in the mood for great Italian food, try Casa Razdora, located in the financial district, just 3.5 miles away from the convention center. This highly Yelp-reviewed restaurant has the best house-made pasta, pizza, sandwiches, all bundled up in a bustling setting.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous, look no further than Piperi Mediterranean Grill, located in downtown just 3 miles away from the Expo. If you’re looking for an assembly-line style flavorful eatery for customizable Mediterranean plates, this is the place for you.
