Unique Dates in Beacon Hill

Today’s neighborhood feature is Beacon Hill, highlighting one of Boston’s most historic neighborhoods. If you’ve ever walked around in this quaint neighborhood, you’ll find it’s filled with upscale dining, antique shops and a swarm of young professionals left and right. It’s no doubt Beacon Hill is filled with lots of goodies, but for those looking for something a little out-of-the-box this holiday season (hint: perfect for dates), CoupMe is here to help!

Go on a Walking Tour…a Chocolate One That is! Boston Chocolate Tours runs a 2.5 hour walking tour every Sunday in Beacon Hill. One of the feature stops is Beacon Hill Chocolates, and along the tour you’ll sample plenty of chocolate from chocolate fondue to chocolate soup. Yep, you heard that right. Told you this tour is anything but ordinary. So snag a date and head over for a tasty tour of a lifetime. Visit their website for tickets and schedules and check out the video here.

Spread the Joy: On December 4th and 5th, Beacon Hill holds “Decorating Days,” where the community comes together to decorate the neighborhood for the holidays. Grab a friend or fly solo, and head on over to help make the town pretty! Volunteers meet at 10 a.m. on Saturday at 141 Cambridge St. and Sunday at noon next to Savenor’s. Oh, and just a little tip: if you find yourself single around the holidays, two couples have met at this event and  winded up getting married. Wink. Wink.

Go Old Fashioned: Take a tour of the Nichols House Museum, one of the last few Beacon Hill townhouses open to the public. Here you’ll learn about what it was like to live as a typical family in the 19th and 20th centuries in the historic Beacon Hill, and you’ll see everything from oriental rugs to old wooden furniture throughout the house. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and is only a $5 admission. Not to shabby for a cheap, interesting and educational date!
