Hands down, Boston is my favorite city! Sure, it helped that one of my favorite people in the world lives there and served as a fabulous tour guide, but I LOVED it! Everyhing was better in Boston...even the Starbucks! It really is too bad that in a few weeks it is going flippin freezing because that means I won't be returning until the weather warms up in May. I don't do cold weather.
I was only really in Bean Town for two days, but if you look at all of the things we did, you would think I was there for two weeks. We were on the go from the time I landed. Somehoe I managed to make my way from the airport into town via the T. Friday night we took a mini walking tour of the area and spent most of our time in the North End and near Fenway. The highlight of the night was most definitely the trip to Mike's Pastry for a chocolate chip cannoli and hot chocolate.
I LOVE this picture! I think this is at the precise moment when Sara was telling me "This is my city." She was quite excited that I was in love with the place that she now calls home.
Day 2: Eveybody knows that breakfast is the most imporatnt meal of the day. So, we walked over to Harvard Square for a delicious breakfast at Z Square. We walked off the calorie-laden meal as we ventured to Beacon Hill, Copley Square, Quincey Market, the Boston Garden, Boston Public Library (aka...BPL) and Newbury Street. Next to breakfast, the most important meal is SNACK. Sara made an excellent choice by leading us to Sweet...a fabulous little place that sells cupcakes and only cupcakes. Absolutely delightful! After our little sweet, we did a little more walking and ended up at a market where we got cheese and crackers to eat while watching the boats travel up and down the wharf. We finished off the night with a big group of Sara's friends...cheering the Vanderbilt Comodores to a big win over Auburn. :)
One final picture before I end this post. This one is from my last day in Boston. We made the trek to an open air market in the South End. They had all kinds of great things...jewelry, art, clothes, food :) It was a great way to end the weekend. Here's a picture of me with the best tour guide ever and her roomie...my new friend...Carly. :) Love ya, girls! Can't wait 'til May!
