Here at the Beacon Inn we’d like to wish all the dads out there a very happy Father’s Day! If you’re staying with us in Boston this weekend, we have a few suggestions for things to do:
Visit the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum:Just a short drive from Boston, the deCordova Sculpture Park offers a great outdoor art experience. If you’re looking to get a little fresh air and see some great modern sculpture, this is a unique museum that we highly recommend. Dads get free admission from 10am to 5pm!
Grab a Father’s Day Brunch: Zaftigs Delicatessen is one of our favorite brunch destinations in Boston for both savory and sweet options, but you can definitely expect a wait, especially for a Sunday brunch on Father’s Day. If you don’t mind standing in line for a little while, the food is well worth the wait! (We recommend the potato pancakes and the banana-stuffed French toast.) It’s a pleasant walk from either of our Beacon Street locations. If you’re looking for something a little different and don’t mind a little more of a walk, we recommend Deep Ellum for a slightly more upscale brunch (duck confit hash!) or the Allston Diner for a hipster take on Southern comfort food (chicken and waffles!), both in the neighboring community of Allston.
Take a Tour of Fenway Park: Between 11am and 2pm, stop by Fenway Park for their annual Father’s Day “Walk in the Park.” This free event gives families a close-up look at one of America’s most historic ballparks. Take a walk around the warning track, sit inside the visitor and home dugouts, and get autographs from Red Sox alumni!
