If you've recently moved to Boston, you may still be reeling from sticker shock. Breathe easy though - there are plenty of deals to be had in some of the nicest neighborhoods in town.
The South End, known for its gorgeous brownstone buildings and cobblestone streets, is one of Boston's trendiest neighborhoods. Independent boutiques, artists lofts, and top notch restaurants abound. An urban safari to this neighborhood promises many adventures and beautiful sights.
For your first safari, plan brunch at Aquitaine Bistro on Columbus Avenue. On Saturdays (all day) and Sundays (10am to 11am), you can eat brunch for $9.99 - that's right, $9.99. On top of the great deal, Aquitaine is beautiful - as in I feel like I'm in Paris beautiful. This French-inspired bistro will make you rethink how you decorated your apartment.
The next sunny weekend in Boston, put your fabulous on (aka stylish sunglasses) and head to Aquitaine. If you're feeling stuffed after the meal, pick one of the many nearby streets and just take a stroll.
