Whether it's been one year or forty years, you will never forget the moment that you and your partner fell for one another. Since then, you've gone through a lot together. Now that your anniversary is coming up, it's time to celebrate and show your significant other that the love you share is still very alive!
Whether you go out often or rarely hit the town, we have some suggestions that are sure to be a fun change of pace. So give this list of anniversary ideas in Boston a read, and start planning your anniversary today:
1) Grab Dinner And A Movie In Style
Are you and your loved one tired of the typical romantic dinner date? Shake things up with a night at the Showcase Superlux, where guests can enjoy a movie out without all of the drawbacks of the movie theater.
You're probably wondering how this theater is different and what it even means to be called a "superlux" theater. Well its hard to pick just one thing because aside from the fact that it show movies, the Showcase Superlux in Chestnut Hill has no resemblance to a normal movie theater at all.
To quickly sum up the optimized viewing experience; you and your spouse will enjoy the film of your choice in two premium leather recliner seats. During the movie you may order items off of the menu from the theater's restaurant, and enjoy them right at your seat. Want to have a drink while you watch? Well this theater also offers a full bar, with show times designated strictly for guests age 21 and over. Oh and I almost forgot to mention, you can order all of this from an interactive iPad at your seat!
2) Treat Yourselves To A Spa Day
At one point or another we all got sick of being cooped up at home while mother nature piled on inch after inch of snow this winter. Even the most seasoned New Englanders are left feeling cold to the core and cramped up from being stuck inside all winter long.
For your anniversary, show your loved one that you care with a romantic spa day at Inman Oasis. While there, you can take a dip in the hot tubs and get pampered by one of the many trained masseuses on staff.
You'll be so busy melting away the winter stress that you might forget you're in the bustling heart of Cambridge!
3) Take In The Music In Back Bay
For years, Symphony Hall has been a cultural hub for the city of Boston. It's prestigious history has attracted top talent from around the world to Boston for you to enjoy. Between the Boston symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops, and Tanglewood Choir there is bound to be a performance for everyone.
Don't feel like making a full night out of it? No problem! Stop by for an open rehearsal and take a walk around the surrounding area. The Christian Science reflecting pool is right next door and well worth the trip.
4) Dine Above The Clouds
Make your partner feel on top of the world (or the city at least) with a meal at the famous Top Of The Hub restaurant. Located on the 52nd floor of Boston's Prudential Center, guests can take in the panoramic views of the city while enjoying brunch, lunch, cocktails, or dinner.
Executive Chef Mark Porcaro's contemporary New England menu is complimented by the extensive collection of hard to find wines, to make the ultimate fine dining experience. Whether you want to be seated in the dining room or spice up the night in the jazz lounge, your sure to have a meal that you won't soon forget.
After you're done eating, be sure to make your way to the Skywalk Observatory. There you will be able to find a nice spot away from the dinner guests and take some photos to commemorate your special day.
5) Plan A Full Night Out On Hanover Street
Home to some of the best Italian food restaurants New England has to offer, Hanover Street is always alive with a mix of locals and tourists alike. There are countless restaurants to experience, so find one that speaks to you and give it a try.
If you saved some room for desert, make your way over to Mike's Pastry and try one of their famous treats. Their cannolis are true classics, but trust me you can't go wrong with a lobster tail to share!
After you've stuffed yourself full, walk the food off and explore all of the other hidden gems Hanover has to offer. My personal favorite is the Improv Asylum, Boston's premier improv group, which can be found in the basement of CVS.
