If you’ve just moved to Boston, dining in with some tasty delivery food can be the best option for those first few nights. Luckily, there are many highly rated restaurants in Boston that offer delivery via apps or online directly through their websites. Alternatively, if you’re looking to get some fresh air, explore your new neighborhood and scope out the best coffee shops, you can order take out to collect in person.
Dining at home is even more of an event when you have the space to eat and entertain. Rather than stay in a cramped and clinical hotel room, why not rent a fully-furnished place that has been thoughtfully outfitted with everything you will need? Apartments by Blueground have fully-equipped kitchens and spacious dining areas so you will feel prepared when you’re cooking for one. For those days when you prefer to dine out, you can check out neighborhood information on Blueground’s tenant Guest App and discover what restaurants are in your area.
