Get Romantic in Boston with a Trip Inspired by 'What's Your Number?'

What's Your Number? opens this weekend nationwide. It's a new rom-com starring Anna Faris as a woman who doesn't want her "number" to go above 20 so she revisits her past "relationships." The movie was shot in Boston last summer and given the nature of its subject, probably at some of the city's most romantic locations.

Here's a look at a few of the movie's filming locations which may just inspire you take a romantic Boston getaway of your own.

The perfect couple's only weekend should start with a chic hotel, like Boston's W Hotel, located at 100 Stuart Street. Anna Faris and her co-stars Chris Evans and Joel McHale shot a scene for the movie in the hotel's lounge last June and, in honor of their star turn, the W is currently offering a special What's Your Number? Package. The deal includes two tickets for cocktails in the W Lounge, two tickets to the movie at Loews Boston Common, and overnight accommodations. For more information, check out WHotels.com.

Though it may not be the romantic restaurant in Boston, The Fill-A-Buster, is centrally located downtown and serves "wicked good" food for the price (nothing is over $7). The restaurant is also featured in a scene where Anna meets up with her on screen ex-boyfriend and real-life husband, Chris Pratt. Fill-A-Buster is open Monday- Friday, 7:00 am – 4:30 pm. Check out their menu at TheFillABuster.com.

And since no romantic getaway is complete without a walk through a park or a beachfront sunset, we have just the places to go. One of the movie's most romantic scenes was filmed in Post Office Square, a 1.7-acre park above an underground parking garage in Boston's financial district. The park is a not only a beautiful green space it is also a venue for free jazz concerts in the summer.

The cast and crew spent several days last summer filming just outside of Boston at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester too. The beach is located on Thatcher Road, Rte 127A and does have parking available on site for $20, $25 on weekends or holidays. You can find more information about Gloucester's beaches at Gloucester-ma.gov.
