I'm looking to take a short trip to Hull Ma in December with my boyfriend. I'm pretty sure I've found perfect lodging but I'm not entirely sure what else I've found. So, I'll basically just list it all.
While dates and trip times are flexible, I'm thinking we will be staying three days and two nights in December, sometime from the 16th to the 23rd. We'd like to check out the area in off season, and just have a bit of a laid back winter retreat to ourselves during the holiday. I know many places aren't open during off season, but if anyone can recommend ANY activites or restaurants that are open at this time it would be greatly appreciated.
So far I'm planning on spending a day, or at least half day at BodyWorks Day Spa. They have superb spa prices, and he's never been. I'd also like to spend evenings in our room after having dinner out, so really I only need one or two other activities for us. He doesn't drink much, so while bars aren't totally out of the question, pubs/grilles would prob be better for us.
I'd really like to catch a Bruins or Celtics game, as I've never been and he's a sports buff. The Mapquest directions I'vegotten say it takes an hour or so to get to Boston, but I've heard that there are ferries you can take. However, its been next to impossible to find a ferry schedule online, or even if the ferry is running during that time of year. I've also thought of stopping bythe beach or Fort Revere Park for a few hours during the day and exploring a bit. Any locals/seasoner vacationers out there have any thoughts/tips/ideas for me it would be greatly appreciated.
The restaurants I've found to be open are: Toast, Beachfire, Saporitos, Schooner's, Raffael's, and Bridgeman's. As both of us are quite picky eaters, I've eliminated any places I saw open that had only seafood, and the Vietnamese Restaurant La Dalat. Beyond that, the two of us will pretty much eat anything. I'd prefer to have a few meals in a decent/nice restaurant, and maybe a few in cheaper places as well like pubs, takeout, etc.
I'm also trying to hunt down a nearby grocery store,or at least something that could pass, as we have a kitchen, and will probably be cooking at least one meal. A liquor store would also be of help, and I love my champagne when I'm away from home.
I think that's it for now. If anyone can help me, it would be greatly appreciated, and I'll offer thanks in advance.
