There's a lot going on in Boston. These streets are brimming with restaurants, shops, and attractions that beg to be visited. But not all of these spots are created equal. We created the Rather Local™ guide to highlight the one-of-a-kind, local businesses hidden throughout Boston. You won't find any mega-international big box stores here, but you will discover plenty that's special.
Rather Local features cafes that serve art in the form of a latte, cozy shops with cupboards full of antique trinkets, and bistros that do for steak what the Beatles did for Rock n' Roll.
So, if you'd rather spend your time hunting down those hidden gems that locals often keep to themselves, choose a category and start exploring.
