I have to say we did Boston right—especially considering we were only there for 2 full days. We flew in on a Friday morning, made a Red Sox/Yankees game at Fenway Park, went from the North End to Jamaica Plain on Day two, and met up with family friends in Beacon Hill before a flight home on Sunday night.
Favorite Boston Eats: Fenagle Bagel, Mike’s Pastry, The Daily Catch, The Paramount
No, I didn’t bring my camera to the baseball game. I took a few selfies with Mike, but it was time to watch baseball. And the Red Sox won! Fenway was amazing. The seats were close together, and being right behind first base, we were among the dedicated fans. The quick wit going on around me was hysterical.
The next day was an early start to do a lot of walking, and even more eating (I hope the walking balanced out the eating…). We rode the T; Prior to this experience, I had never been on a subway before. It was such a new experience going from section to section, through the different colleges and seeing the cultures and characters that got on and off the subway. Good thing Mike was a pro. I would have gotten lost right away. We visited the North End Wharf, ate at the Daily Catch and picked up Mike’s Pastry cannoli to take back with us.
We walked back toward Boston Commons and snaked to and from the Freedom trail visiting historical sites where the Boston Massacre occurred and Ben Franklin’s grave. There were so many diverse cultures and characters walking through the city. It was an interesting contrast to see the historical buildings with modern artists and students walking and living through it.
Boston was an amazing city. We will be back to eat more delicious meals and discover all the quaint little neighborhoods. Until next time, Boston!
