|Our view - Boston Public Gardens|
Here are a few things we did:
- We saw the city with the Old Town Trolley Tour (a hop-on, hop-off bus tour). I would highly recommend it.
- We threw "tea" in the ocean at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum.
- Took a harbour tour on a ship.
- Yo Yo Ma was playing with the Boston Symphony so we HAD to take that in -- SO good.
- Enjoyed long walks through the Boston Public Garden.
- Stayed here.
- Ate here, here and here (plus other places I can't remember). The food was delish.
- Visited Harvard and went to the Museum of Natural History there. It was very, very good. I was wishing the kids were with us for that part in particular.
- Shopping. There was tons of it, and everything from regular kinds of stores to high end boutiques. Also, a really terrific antique row in the Beacon Hill area.
Fenway Park was pretty close to where we stayed (if baseball is your thing); we didn't get to a game.
Simply walking around admiring the architecture was enjoyable. Both the old and new buildings were interesting. I especially liked the old brownstones. The fall colours were just starting to come out when we were there; I guess we should have gone a few weeks later to see them in all their glory. It was still gorgeous though and quite warm. The flip flops even came out the one day.
I don't know if we'll ever get back here, but I'm sure glad we went. Boston is beautiful, and it was great to get away for a few days. Thankful for me and him time.
