Going to Boston Monday

Any recommendations for a 25-year-old male?

I like history, nature, breweries, and anything whacky and unique. My gf will come eventually, too. She likes all of the stupid girl shit like shopping, cute downtown areas, etc.

    Your image is Beacon Hill, in Charlestown. It's always the scenic part of Boston in parts like that. I was there with my gf about a month ago. Very scenic there but not a whole lot to do beyond the Bunker Hill Monument (pretty much a mini Washington Monument, a ton of steps to climb but at least you get a nice view). Here are some suggestions without going too far down the tourist rabbit hole

    >Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market
    >North End for dago shenanigans. Protip: Modern Pastry is better than Mike's Pastry
    >Allston-Brighton has Asian stuff on par with or better than Chinatown at better prices
    >the area around Northeastern is nice
    >Really anywhere in Cambridge (it's all fun if you're a 20-something)
    Cambridge is practically Boston, but the locals are extremely anal that Cambridge is its own city because that's the location of Harvard's and MIT's campus

    Expect a lot of street scenes that roughly resemble this

      Real grasp of geography you have there. And Cambridge is it’s own city, you fricking chowderhead.

      >110k a year am I fricked?
      Meh. After state and federal taxes your take home will be around 80k. Rent will shred this remainder hard though. A high end studio or 1br downtown (think Avalon North Station) will cost around $2825 a month for the studio so thats $34k gone in rent on a studio. You can downgrade to older and far more cramped spots but it will be good locations. A 1br in the North End goes for $2200-2600, studios from $1450-1900 depending on quality and size (according to zillow). Rent and taxes are going to take out over half your paycheck, still leaves you a nice chunk of around $50k to play with annually though, especially if you learn to take advantages of deals like Black Lamb's dollar oysters for lunch.

      When you hit up the North End, go have a meal at Daily Catch, cash only hole in the wall (literally between 22 and 26 seats) and shoot for the black pasta. Best meal you'll have guaranteed.
      >breweries
      If you want the rushed version, the tap house near union oyster/haymarket has a lot of local brews on tap/bottle.

      Boston is a good city for a guy in his 20s imo. Honestly I can only think of a handful of places that might be better.

        There are more young women than men because of the colleges. Advance your career in the good job market, find a wife and then get the hell out of Mass and settle in NH in your 30s. Boston is also a good city for travel because of all the cheap flights to Europe.

          if you want to move here for the gun laws, Maine literally has the *exact same* gun laws with the lowest cost of living in New England

            Literally who cares?
            >huge drug problem in the state among young people once you get north of Portsmouth
            If you settle anywhere remotely close to Manchester, you've fricked up
            >almost no gyms
            You can get fit for free, or do you only go to socialize?
            >women that live here are fat, alcoholic and mean
            Can't argue, but you don't have to talk to them if you dont want to
            >literally the most expensive in-state tuition for college in the country
            Can't argue, but the scenario implies that you've already made it thus the problem is the hypothetical children you may or may not have
            >incredibly high cost of living once you consider property taxes
            Cant argue
            >literally no nightlife or shows, if that's your thing
            Do you go out at all?

            Op, don't listen to him, nh is great, just stay out of Manchester

    >MFA/Gardner Museum if you like art
    >Yume wo Katare in Porter Square if you like ramen at all; very unique dining experience
    >North End, Beacon Hill, Newbury Street, >Harvard Square, Central Square all pleasant to walk around
    >Look into the Arnold Arboretum and the Freedom trail
    >Seaport is the 'up and coming' district where most mid 20's yuppies live

    >Faneuil hall isn't really worth going to on its own merits, though if you're in the area you can check it out.
    >Avoid Downtown Crossing area if you can; full of potsmoking Black folk. You probably won't get shot (like you would in Mattapan or parts of Dorchester) but it's unpleasant.
    >Davis Square is relatively pleasant to walk around in, but it probably has the most gays per capita in the world

      Probably the best do/avoid list I've seen for Boston on here. Didn't realize Davis had gotten so bad but not surprised.

      Faneuil is also close to italian distrcit and Paul Revere House, Mass State house, that one cemetary, and that one Canoli place with every kind of Canoli. I would do this one day and then the USS Const/Harvard another...

    Check out Hong Kong in faneuil hall for karaoke, $1 teriyaki sticks, and scorpion bowls

    Dorchester Brewing hosts the museum of really bad art so there's some funky paintings there. They also have bars games like shuffleboard and skeeball.

    Wednesday Trivia at jeanie johnston is a good time

    How's living in Brighton compared to the rest of Boston? Seems like a decent way to save some money while being able to explore the rest of Boston but that's probably a cope.

      It's easy to get to Downtown Boston but going north or south is a b***h since the T only runs east to west in that area. However the city is pretty walkable.

      My buddies lived there and Brighton has a few cool bars. It's pretty young due to the proximity to all the colleges. Had a fun couple nights out there.

      yeah brighton's fine really, cheaper but with less activity than boston of course
      i lived in allston which is basically the same thing but with more activity so i'd prefer that - more bars and in particular a shitton of korean restaurants cause of BU, but if you can snipe a deal in brighton why not, the city is small enough you won't feel too isolated
      >mfw brighton music hall is actually in allston
