Boston will forever be one of my favorite cities to visit. The New England fall did not disappoint! The rich history, sea food and colors made me want to stay forever. Some get drained by the quick pace and concrete jungle, but not me. It energizes and inspires me with something new on every corner!
To walk on streets our founding fathers created is an unforgettable feeling. I’m able to enjoy the freedoms that they fought so hard to have. The energy in Boston is so different from others I’ve visited. The combined history and modern structures creates a sense of nostalgia. I so wish Andy could’ve been there to enjoy it with me! (Next time. 🙂 )
If you’re visiting in the near future, I’ve narrowed down my top ten favorite things to do in the city. I’ve been three times and every time we discover something new to do!
Favorite Things to Do in Boston:
- Freedom Trail – walk from Faneuil Hall and discover the history of Boston on foot! The trail is literally red bricks in the ground, guiding you. It’s a great way to enjoy the city alone or with friends.
- Mike’s Pastry – a stop on the trail is Mike’s Pastry. If you’re in need of some delicious cannolis, this is the place! I finish mine before we even leave the store. 🙂 Just remember cash! My favorite is the pistachio one.
- Beacon Street – this is actually where these photos were taken. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the United States! These street lamps still run on flame.
- Boston Common – one of my favorite places to grab a hot cocoa and sit and people watch. The leaves were incredible this time of year!
- Harvard University – the reason I traveled to Boston was for a medical conference at Harvard Medical School. I LOVE the architecture of Harvard buildings and its history. Visit the bookstore and grab a t-shirt! 🙂 I can always dream right?
- The Barking Crab – a lobster roll is a must when you visit Boston. This has been our favorite! Located right on the river, you get a great view of the Boston skyline.
- Fenway Park – if you visit in the summer, obviously go to a Red Sox game no matter who your team is. It’s the oldest stadium in the country! If you visit in the off season, there are still tours of the stadium.
- Museum of Fine Arts – spend some time in the museum discovering artifacts, paintings and sculptures from all over the world!
- Duck Tours – travel by land AND sea throughout historic Boston! Designed in World War II, you travel in a vehicle that drives on the roads and right into the river! Definitely a must when it’s warmer. 🙂
- Newbury Street – a blogger has to do some shopping while she travels right? 🙂 If you’re on the hunt for some new shoes, visit Newbury Street!
We travel not to escape life, but for life to not escape us!
