I really, really LOVED Boston! Usually when I go somewhere, I get a strong impression about a place and with Boston, it gave me such a positive feeling. Everywhere we went, the people were friendly, down to earth and upbeat. Even the baseball fans were friendly to us SF Giants fans. It really was unbelievable! These are all iPhone pics so the quality isn’t quite there with a lot of them.
We loved our hotel which was conveniently walking distance from Fenway Park and right near a subway entrance. Boston reminded me of San Francisco in some ways with its harbor and beauty. What a gorgeous place! Mainly we were there to see the Giants play Boston at Fenway Park and we really enjoyed that even though we lost (sad face); but seeing the Green Monster in person was so cool and we enjoyed Fenway Park because of its baseball history.
In between games, we took a harbor cruise which was really enjoyable, and the weather was just perfect! We walked the Freedom Trail and saw Faneuil Hall and enjoyed a tour of that, we also saw a presentation of the Boston Tea Party where that occurred and it was really good, saw the famous North Church (what a place) and saw so many other historical places. It was fabulous! We walked through Little Italy, had Boston’s famous Lobster Roll (pronounced “lobstah”) and stumbled upon Mike’s Pastry where we shared one of their delicious cannoli. Yum!
The weather was beautiful and only one day it rained briefly. We were totally unprepared at the time and got soaked as we scrambled from one subway line to another while everyone else had umbrellas. Can we say TOURISTS?? It’s so strange to me that it rains when it’s warm!
