We were headed to Boston to see The Blue Man Group and wanted to stay for the weekend. We always take our dog with us and this time I thought we would try something different than the hotel we normally stay at. I am so glad we did! The Blue Pearl was wonderful, the views amazing (especially the Boston skyline at night). The house boat was perfect for us, the bed VERY comfortable, and the interior clean and nicely decorated. Remember you are on a boat, so there is movement, for us this meant a great nights sleep. If you do get motion sickness, take the over the counter medicine or wear the bands, it is worth it! The plane noise did bother us at all, nor did it bother our dog. The town of Winthrop was a pleasant surprise! What a great town for walking around! We enjoyed walking through town and going to the local park. We devoured our lobster rolls from Bell Isle Seafood on the deck of The Blue Pearl watching the planes, (we indulged for both our lunches… Yummy!) Our first night we had dinner at Osaka Lucky Garden, delicious Chinese and sushi! We went to dinner in Boston, Maggiano's Little Italy (Delish!) the next night. It is a short cab ride into the city, so you do not miss anything by staying here. Viking cab service was great, prompt, on time, and very friendly drivers! We had brunch at the Winthrop Arms Hotel and Restaurant, very tasty! We were sad to have our weekend end as we met so many nice people on the dock and heard about so many nice restaurants to check out right in Winthrop. Our time was too short!! We can't wait to go back!!
