Escape knows no time zone. Vacation needs no mile marker. This I discovered recently when I planned a near-home getaway that left me completely fulfilled. I saw new sights while walking streets I’ve known all my life. For a glorious three-day weekend, I was entertained, pampered and submerged completely in vacation mode.
All just a few quick miles from home.
I chose to anchor my weekend at the spiffy new Envoy Hotel in Boston’s Seaport District. Opened four months ago, the hotel is Boston’s first Autograph Collection property. Tucked into the edge of Boston Harbor (it gazes down upon the iconic Barking Crab restaurant), the hotel offers a new and distinctive feel for a Boston stay, but with enough classic Boston and seaside to remind us what an amazing city we live in. There’s even a rooftop bar.
