Third (and final) leg of our little East Coast trip…Boston.
Boston was never on my travel bucket list. However I am so glad we had the opportunity to go and explore this gorgeous city. Since it wasn’t a place I ever thought to visit, I’m not sure what I was expecting, but Boston surpassed it and than some.
Where We Stayed:
We drove into Boston on Thursday and upon arriving we checked into our hotel at The Boxer. It was a super cute hotel in a really great location (considering I had no idea where exactly to book). We were technically in the West End, but incredibly close to the North End. Everything we wanted to do/see was within walking distance.
What We Did:
By the time we checked into our hotel we only had a few hours until our dinner reservations, so we just walked around the area and grabbed a quick drink before getting ready to go out.
For dinner we went to Ristorante Fiore (per Biana’s request). It was a delicious Italian restaurant with a great rooftop patio and atmosphere….a perfect way to start our Boston trip! After dinner we headed to a bar (that I don’t remember the name of) and then ended our night at Durty Nelly’s. It was a tiny little dive bar, but the perfect little hangout for us.
Friday we woke up and headed to explore Beacon Hill, which I’m pretty sure is where I am supposed to live. It was seriously the cutest place I have been. After that we were super touristy and hit up Cheers for a beer and then ventured out to the Boston Public Garden, an incredibly clean and gorgeous park downtown. After a little more exploring it started to downpour. So Thursday was a little hampered and we ended up just grabbing some food and drinks. We ended our night with the most delicious cannoli from Mike’s Pastry.
Saturday was our last day, so we headed out to do the Boston Freedom Trail. I wasn’t too sure I wanted to do this, but (once again) was so glad we did. It was incredibly interesting and a great way to explore the city.
Sail Boston was also happening that weekend so we headed down to the harbor and toured one of the big boats. They had an entire festival going on, so it was a fun little experience.
And that was basically our trip to Boston.
Time to plan our next trip 🙂
