How to spend your day in Boston: Axe Throwing

When we moved to Boston we had no idea where to begin when it came to finding new experiences. It’s such a big place and we had no idea where to start. With no one telling us where we could go we just started researching, LOTS of research! Then I decided I wanted to share all of it with you!

Most of our adventures are during the day! We like to grab lunch and then do something after, but we also like to mix it up. We knew we wanted to have lunch, so we ate at Ebi Sushi which was right next door! We haven’t had good gluten free sushi since moving to Boston. It was delicious! The rice was the best I have ever had and it was so fresh! It was also super inexpensive. Dustin had the volcano roll and the crazy maki roll (not GF) and I had the Philly roll and the salmon avocado roll! We also tried the salmon, yellowtail and mackerel.

The axe throwing place is called Urban Axes and it was $25 a person per hour. Well worth the money for sure! You have to be 21+ to throw and you will need to have your ID with you to show them. We signed our wavers and then got assigned to a guide. Our guide was funny and knowledgable and gave us personalized assistance based on each of our particular throwing form and stance. She watched what we were doing and then would have us adjust accordingly.

Initially when we arrived I was so nervous and honestly thought about not doing it, but then it was my turn and I was like why wouldn't I try this at least once?! So I did! AND OMG I felt like a bad@$$! Seriously I felt so empowered! I would hands down recommend this for a date night or even as a work outing! Dustin kept saying, “I need to get my team out to do this!” If you do plan to go, just make sure you look up the walk in hours for that specific day.

Urban Axes has the coolest decor and vibe inside, too! They had a pretty decent amount of drink options like ciders and craft beers. For snacks they had different sizes of cheese plates and some other small appetizers.

Let me know if you end up going and loved it as much as we did! I would also love to know if you found this post helpful. My inbox is always open, so email me with any questions or just to chat!
